NUTRITIONAL YEAST: This is a highly nutritious vegan ingredient that has a ton of benefits. Jam packed with B-Vitamins, Folic Acid, Zinc, and Protein. Taste wise—nutritional yeast has a cheesy, nutty, savory, ‘umami’ flavor. STORAGE: Leftovers can be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, for optimal freshness. Can also be frozen for 4-6 months. To defrost, simply place soup in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature before re-heating on the stove top to serve. TURMERIC: While adding turmeric is optional, it definitely has benefits: powerful medicinal properties, natural anti-inflammatory ingredient, increases antioxidant activity in the body, and more. KALE: If preferred, you can always substitute Kale with Spinach or Collard Greens. SPICES/HERBS: If desired, you can reduce the amounts slightly. Please know that this recipe is bold in spice/herb flavor, so feel free to adjust based on your tastebuds.
