The Creme de la Non-Cream of Vegan Creamy Soups

Think that you need cream (vegan or not) for a 'cream of' style soup?  Think again as here is a little creamy creation from the kitchen and imagination of Phil which uses cashews instead of any form of cream.

Cream of Vegan Soups (Celery, Leek, Onion, Potato and Cashew) - Serves 2 greedy vegans

1 x onion chopped
1 x leek chopped
1 x bunch celery (chopped)
Half teaspoon of celery salt
4 x small potatoes (2 cups chopped)
2 x cups cashews
1 x tablespoon vegan stock powder
2 x tablespoons oil
Some water

Fry onion and leek in the oil until slightly soft then add the celery to sweat down.

Add the celery salt and chopped spuds.

Add water (adjust to how thick you want the soup - you'll know how much!) and bring to the simmer.

Add the stock powder and cashews and simmer for 20 minutes until everything is nice and soft.

Let cool slightly and blend until creamy and smooth.  If it seems too thick add a little more water.

I would have taken a photo beforehand but it wasn't around long enough!
