Broccoli & Potato Soup

Before going vegan I was a huge fan of broccoli and cheese soup. This hearty soup may not be as cheesy as the old soups I used to eat; however, it is very tasty and satisfying non the less. You may choose to top with soup with an extra sprinkle of nutritional yeast or shredded vegan cheese. Broccoli is high in anti-oxidant properties and protein and potatoes are rich in vitamins, mineral, healthy carbohydrates and fibre.
