This is a very simple recipe. I use unsweetened 'MimicCreme' for all my cream based soups. It is made from a blend of almonds and cashews and is dairy free, cholesterol free, gluten free, 100% natural, kosher and of course, vegan. It can be ordered from mimiccreme.com or Amazon.com. The mimicreme.com web site also lists retail locations where it can be purchased. Of course, feel free to use any non-dairy substitute, such as soy, almond or hemp milk, but it may not be as creamy (you can always thicken with 1 tablespoon flour + 1 tablespoon water or broth).
