  • Why do I like it?

This soup has a fantastic texture, is rich and creamy without any diary.  The ingredients are simple and basic.  I recommend making  your own almond butter (click here for recipe), it is much cheaper than buying organic.  You could also swirl in some cashew sour cream or vegan parmesan to finish it off.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

Made the following swaps - coconut oil for olive oil, onion for leek, vegetable broth for chicken stock, almond butter for tahini.

Decreased amount of spinach.  Omitted the cheese.

*Note - if you want to cook without oil, just heat up the pot first then place your onions and dry sauté, add a splash of water if the vegetables are sticking.
