From Frances Moore Lappe's "Diet for a Small Planet". The nutritional yeast, miso, and cashews add a cheese-like umami flavor to this vegan soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a soup pot and toast the millet until it becomes golden brown and begins to pop. Remove from heat, add 1 1/2 cups water, return to heat and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat some oil and saute the celery, green pepper, onion, garlic, and carrot until the onion is translucent.
  3. To millet pot, add 6 cups water (for thick soup), cauliflower, bay leaf, sauteed vegetables, soup base, herbs, and celery seed, stirring occasionally so millet doesn't stick. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. In a blender, process miso, cashews, 1 cup water, and yeast. Add to soup and simmer 10 minutes. Taste for salt and adjust consistency with more water if you like.
