Vegan Creamy Golden Vegetable Soup is so simple to put together.

You could just throw it all in a pot and cook it at one time, but don’t.

The chopping and shredding of veggies has a dual purpose:

1. They cook much more quickly when cut to smaller bits.

2. The soup will be easier to blend together.

Sautéing the aromatics adds another layer of flavoring that you won’t want to miss out on. Using vegetable stock offers even more flavor and nutrients.

(Remember to save your vegetable scraps for the next batch of homemade vegetable stock!)

Time to reveal that not-so-secret health food flavor booster… Nutritional Yeast!

Yes, nutritional yeast brings vitamins, fiber, protein. It thickens the soup and provides a nutty-cheesy flavor as well. You won’t want to leave it out.

    This looks delicious but I will not make it until you tell us where all the sodium comes from. Is it the vegetable stock? The high amount of sodium cancels out the nutritional value of the veggies.

      Hi Karen,

      If you use homemade vegetable stock, it will cut out most of the sodium. It’s also coming from canned beans.

    This looks good but so much sodium! I cannot tell from the ingredients what is adding so much sodium. Would love to modify to reduce the salt

    • Sommerposted January 12, 2018 at 4:36 pm Reply

      Hi Renee,

      It’s probably in the store-bought vegetable stock and the canned beans. You could make substitutions for both.
