Plant-based creamy vegetable soup 💚

This soup was shared by @blue_collard_dude a bit over a month ago. His version looked so dang good... Thanks so much for sharing it, dude! The original recipe comes from @dishingouthealth. You can find the full recipe on her site (the title is: 'CREAMY VEGETABLE SOUP (VEGAN)'), but I decided to tweak a few things based on what I had on hand because I'm doing that more and more these days.

It's a soaked cashews + water thickened soup, and I replaced 1/3 cup of the cashews with 1/3 cup of white beans to more closely match an existing creamy soup I enjoy, but I think you could just use 2/3-1 cup cashews and be happy either way. Beans help keep me full, so I work them in when I can.

I made a couple of tweaks but nothing drastic:

– 3/4 tsp dry thyme
– 4 tsp homemade bouillon powder + water in place of broth
– Frozen potato cubes (technically potatoes O'Brien, added 5 mins before the cashew milk goes in)
– 2/3 cup cashews + 1/3 cup white beans blended
– Instead of chickpeas, I used a heaping cup of snowcap beans that I had made and froze (a little less than the OG recipe because my bagged frozen veggies also had baby Lima beans already)
– Salted a bit later in cooking. And, a pinch or two at the table as recommended by @blue_collard_dude !

I wouldn't type that out if I didn't plan on making this again 😊 Though technically, I typed it out to send to my sister first because we're both on the lookout for easy, yummy, satisfying plant-forward soups!
