Roasted Vegetable Soup

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
Roasted Vegetable Soup

Introduction

This is such a hearty savory soup--and it's vegan! The color alone should win you over. By roasting the vegetables you get a sweet smoky smell and taste.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 carrots, chopped
    2 parsnips, chopped
    1 large onion, chopped
    1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and chopped
    3 garlic cloves
    2 teaspoons canola oil
    2 sprigs fresh thyme
    4 ounces no salt added tomato sauce
    32 ounces no salt added vegetable stock
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1 1/2 cups kale, shredded
    1/4 cup chopped parsley
    3/4 cup nutritional yeast

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spread vegetables in a single layer on a sheet pan drizzle on the oil and mix with your hands to evenly distribute the oil. Scatter the thyme over the vegetables. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes.
Pour the tomato sauce over the vegetables and roast another 15 minutes, just until the sauce is bubbly or the vegetables have turned slightly golden brown. Remove thyme stems.
Use a spatula to transfer the vegetables and tomato sauce into a large saucepan, then slowly add the stock. Season with pepper and simmer for 10 minutes, then stir in the nutritional yeast. Puree with an immersion blender, then add the kale and simmer 2-3 minutes, until the kale has wilted. Add the parsley, stir to combine, and remove from heat. Serve warm.
Makes 6 servings (one cup).

    Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast product. It has a nutty, somewhat cheesy or eggy flavor, and it's a great non-animal source of Vitamin B12, making it a great food source for vegans. - 7/12/11

    I make this often in fall. Didn't know I can get the protein, B12, creaminess from nutritional yeast. I normally use fat free half and half, and beans instead. You can cream soup in a blender in batches, but be careful to vent the top and place a towel over so it doesn't blow up in your face. - 7/30/11

    Yet another great home made soup with high nutrition and low sodium. So full of flavor. Thanks. If no immersion blender, you can mash in the pan with a potato masher or run through a ricer or a Foley food mill - ricer and food mill are just a little more messy, same great flavor. - 8/25/11

    I only pureed a little bit at first to see if I liked the consistency. I thought it tasted better without pureeing it so I left it chunky. I did not have yeast so I substituted parmesan cheese. I also substituted the tomato sauce for Muir Glenn Fire Roasted Tomatoes and spinach instead of kale. - 9/30/12

    This soup was way too thick for me. I even added a whole extra can of stock to try to make it more like a soup consistency. I thought it was okay until I added the kale and the parsely. If you decide to make this I would definitely cut back on it because it was very overpowering. - 12/22/11

  • Made it last night for today's lunch. Wonderful blend of flavors and textures and very filling. I too was not sure about the nutritional yeast so I added it to only half of a batch to start. It adds creaminess and great depth of flavor. Don't skip it. - 9/7/11

  • Don't be afraid of nutritional yeast! It's a great addition to your pantry (but keep it in the fridge). You can do so much with it. Just go to your local health food store and ask where to find it. I've used it for "creamed" kale (dairy-free), for dairy-free garlic butter, on popcorn. Try it!!! - 8/31/11

    No - sorry!
    How on earth can BROWN be expected to win folk over?
    It needs some really vibrant green added at the end - so either cook the kale separately and keep it at it's brightest, or add some other form of bright green at serving.
    Try grated carrot and finely chopped spring onion for garnis - 8/21/11
