Vegan Broccoli & Cauliflower "Cheese" Soup

This super easy to make, super nutritional soup is a great substitute for 
cheesy, dairy filled broccoli cheese soup.

Makes Approx 6 Servings


Ingredients:
6 C. Water 
1 C. White Rice
1 Small Onion Chopped
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 1/2 C. Broccoli Florets
2 1/2 C. Cauliflower Florets
1 Tbsp. Vegetarian Better than Bouillon
1 Bay Leaf
1/2 Tsp. Paprika
1/2 Tsp. Cayenne
1/2 Tsp. Pepper
1/2 C. Nutritional Yeast
Salt to Taste


Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat and toss in the onions. Saute until the onions become soft and translucent. Add in all of the other ingredients, but the nutritional yeast, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the rice, cauliflower and broccoli are very tender. Remove the bay leaf and toss in the nutritional yeast. Puree with a stick blender until smooth and creamy. I like to leave the soup a little bit chunky, so I don't puree all the way. Add salt if needed. Yum!
