Vegetable Soup with Nooch
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Nooch is another word for nutritional yeast, and has a nice strong nutty cheese-like aroma and flavor. Try sprinkling it on pasta and salads. Here it is used in a vegetable soup like you would use herbs, etc. for added flavor. Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast fungus cultivated from sugarcane and beet molasses. High in protein and B vitamins. Use any vegetable for this soup. Zucchini and onions are just a suggestion!
1/4 cup unsalted butter or extra virgin olive oil
I like to precook the veggies in the microwave. In glass or ceramic batter bowl, combine butter or oil, salt, pepper, and chopped vegetables. Cover with a glass or ceramic plate or lid. Cook in microwave for 5 minutes. Transfer to a heavy bottomed saucepan or dutch oven and cook another 2-3 minutes if needed to have them be nearly tender. Stir in the nutritional yeast, and then whisk in the flour and then the broth. Bring to a boil, whisking well, and continue to cook another 2-3 minutes. Taste and add more salt and pepper as desired. Serve!
