Potato Soup

Place the following in stew or soup pot and cook until almost done:
4 cups sliced potatoes 3 cups water

Place the following in blender and purée until smooth and creamy.
¾ cup raw cashews
1 Tbs Bakon Yeast (most health food stores carry this)
1 cup water
Add this to the potatoes after they have cooked and simmer for 5 minutes more.

Place the following in frying pan and water sauté until onion clear
3 Tbsp water
1 cup sliced onion (the sweet onions give the soup a nice flavor)
1 clove garlic
2-3 celery stalks thinly sliced

Mix together
1½ tsp garlic granules
2 tsp sea salt

Optionally, place about
of this mixture with the onions once they have cooked and the rest goes in the potato mixture. Let heat through and serve.

NOTE: I usually add about 4 ounces of mushrooms to the potatoes and an additional 4 ounces of mushrooms to the onion mixture.

We usually make a double batch because we enjoy it so much and I always use much more garlic than a recipe calls for. I have also added some vegan cheddar cheese to make it a cheesy-potato soup.
