By Earth of Maria
👩🍳Cook Time: 25 mins
3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups cabbage, chopped
1 1/2 cups button mushrooms, chopped
3 cups broccoli
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups plant based milk
2 tbsp tamari
1 cup cashews, (see recipe notes on soaking)
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1 lemon , juice of
1 1/2 cups kale, de-stemmed and chopped
1Start by boiling the carrot and potatoes in a saucepan for 12-15 minutes, until fork tender.
2Meanwhile, add the onion and cabbage to a different saucepan and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until they start to soften. Then, add the mushrooms and sauté for a further 2 minutes.
3Add the broccoli, water, 1 cup of the plant based milk and tamari. Stir together and leave to simmer for 5-7 minutes, until the broccoli is bright green and soft.
4Once the potatoes and carrots are cooked, drain them, but retain and set aside 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Transfer the vegetables to a blender or food processor together with the cashews, nutritional yeast, turmeric, salt, the rest of the plant based milk, lemon juice, and the cooking water. Blend until very smooth.
5Stir the 'cheese' sauce into the saucepan with the broccoli. Simmer for a further 5 or so minutes to allow the soup to thicken, adding the kale around half way through to allow it to wilt.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
