“From the March 2009 issue of Veg Times. I know there are lots of Broccoli Cheese Soups on Zaar, but this one keeps my attention because it contains nutritional yeast, with which I am fascinated :). It also seems reasonably adaptable for my vegan friends. I hope you enjoy! I have adapted the recipe a bit per my family's tastes.”
