Vegetarian Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup

Recipe by  

"Growing up I always loved my mom's broccoli and cauliflower soup! Now that I'm an adult, I've created my own version suited to my personal tastes. This is a vegetarian soup and can easily be made vegan with dairy substitutes (I use soy milk). My fiance likes reduced-fat sharp Cheddar and crackers with his soup. Enjoy!"

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a stockpot over medium-low heat; cook and stir onion, leek, and garlic until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Add cauliflower, broccoli, and potatoes to onion mixture; cook and stir until potatoes are lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Increase heat to medium-high; stir broth and enough water to cover vegetables into mixture. Stir curry powder, turmeric, bay leaf, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper into broth-vegetable mixture. Loosely cover pot with a lid and bring soup to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are softened, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Whisk milk and flour together in a bowl until smooth and thickened; stir into soup along with nutritional yeast until soup is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove soup from heat and allow to slightly cool and thicken.

I added a huge chopped carrot, and let it simmer a couple of hours, but followed the recipe otherwise. I can't handle much spiciness at all, and this was just right (I used no more than a pinch of cayenne).

Nice soup. I pureed it and didn't need any flour.Increased the spices for my own preferences.
