Simply Cheezy Asian Dumpling Soup


I discovered just how ‘creamy’ a non-dairy soup can be a few weeks back when I added some Nutritional Yeast and bit of left over Vegan Cream Cheese to an otherwise plain old lentil soup I made up from leftover for dinner.

The Nutritional Yeast was just fabulously flavorful and the cream cheese just made everything that much more thick and delicious.  I’m thinking that you could use these 2 flavors in a whole lot of other soups and I definitely will be using it again and again.  I also added in some store-bought, leek dumplings which were just over the top along with the Asian base flavors of the broth.  A very rich and memorable supper I thought I’d pass along to you today ♥

    What an amazing idea Angela! I always add nutritional yeast to my soups for flavor and thickening and I’ve even added it to my Asian “fried” rice, but this is so fantastic to add it to Asian soup! I definitely need to put this one down to try….geez so many recipes and so little time! Looks so gorgeous.
