Sunflower Seed Soup With Lemongrass, Scallions & Celery (Vegan, Gluten-Free)
The Sunshine Soup!
This creamy soup has all the richness without the fat. It's made with sunflower seed cream and nutritional yeast to give it body so it doesn't stick to yours. Scallions and celery give it texture while saffron, nutmeg and lemongrass brighten up the flavor. You can add some whole sunflower seeds for extra crunch or drizzle maple agave syrup on top for sweetness. A nice accompaniment for this dish is my sunflower seed quinoa flour flatbread. Toast it...dunk it....and while you're at it-make a double batch and spread the sunshine!
