1 medium head of cauliflower
1/2 cup of cashews
1/2 of a yellow bell pepper
1 small sweet onion
3 garlic cloves
1-2 green chilies (seeded for less heat)
5 cups of water
1/2 tsp salt
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup jalapeños with brine
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tbsp white miso paste
1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp tapioca starch
Salt to taste
Roughy chop cleaned cauliflower, bell pepper and onion, and add them to a large pot with the cashews, garlic cloves, chili(s), salt and water.
Bring to a boil, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Once soft, add everything to a blender, including all other remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth. Season to taste with additional salt if needed after blending.
Add soup back to the pot, and bring to a simmer again, stirring continuously. The tapioca starch will help thicken the soup and turn it slightly cheesy gooey.
Serve with lots of toppings and some homemade baked chips, and enjoy!
I topped mine with chopped tomatoes and poblano peppers, avocado, and cilantro micro greens. Beans would be a great addition as well!
