There's something so comforting about a bowl of hot soup on a cold day. This is one of my favorites from a past Refresh. It's one of those recipes you find yourself going back. I hope you'll give it a try. If you are curious about what a Refresh is, I'll explain at the end. For now, I want to get the recipe to you. :)
It was a gray dreary day yesterday which triggered a craving for this soup. It's the ultimate non-dairy creamy comfort soup for me. If you love dairy, don't let the "non-dairy" description scare you. Try this. I think you'll be surprised - pleasantly surprised. If you avoid dairy for whatever reason but still love creamy soup, you will be so glad you have found this recipe!
Typically I am not a soup person. It's just not something I typically get excited about eating. I tell you this because I LOVE this soup, well, chowder. I have lost count of how many times I have made it. The recipe is from my friend at Plantiful Wellness.
For the creaminess it uses cashews and non-dairy milk. Nutritional yeast gives it a bit of a "cheesy" taste. Nutritional yeast is a good source of B vitamins - something any stressed person can use (are there any people out there who aren't stressed these days?).
I've added comments in blue based upon what I do when preparing this and also some extra comments in case you've never cooked using cashews, nutritional yeast, etc. I want to make plant based meals and eating as easy as possible especially if you are new at it. Personally I love trying to new things and hope you will too. Of course, if you are a long time cook of non-dairy, plant based foods, just ignore all of my additional commentary. :)
