Vegan RecipesIf you are looking for new and exciting vegan recipes, then this recipe for Cauliflower Soup with Vegan Cheese Recipe might be just what you are looking for! You’ll need to have a hand blender on hand to make this recipe. For the “cheese” portion of the recipe, I recommend using Daiya vegan cheese, but you are certainly welcome to substitute your own personal favorites!

To make these vegan recipes, you will need to gather the following ingredients:

  •  1 medium cauliflower
  •  1 tablespoon sesame oil
  •  2 smallish yellow onions, peeled and finely sliced
  •  4 thyme sprigs
  •  2 bay leaves
  •  sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  •  4 cups vegetable stock
  •  1 cup vegan cheese (I prefer Daiya jalepeno garlic harvati style
  •  1/3 cup creme fraiche
  •  Parsley for garnish

Start preparing these vegan recipes by removing the outer leaves from the cauliflower and break it into small florets. Leave the stalk on. It adds flavor to the dish. Set aside. Melt the sesame oil gently in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook gently for 5 minutes or so until translucent.

Add the cauliflower, thyme and bay leaves to the mix. Season with little salt and pepper, to allow the flavors to adjust. Pour in the vegetable stock, stir and bring to a simmer. Then cover and simmer for 20 minutes or so, until the cauliflower is very soft.

Crumble in the vegan cheese and stir over a low heat until it has melted into the soup. Add the creme fraiche and stir to combine.Pick out the bay leaves and thyme stalks, then blend the soup until really smooth.

Return the soup to the pan and reheat gently. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
Ladle unto warm bowls, serve topped with chopped parsley. These vegan recipes make about servings, but you can easily double the ingredients if you need too.
