How to make it:
In a large soup or stockpot over medium heat, Sautee the onion and garlic in the vegan margarine or olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onions and garlic are almost soft.
Add chopped cauliflower and cook for a few more minutes, stirring frequently. Add the vegetable broth and bay leaves and bring to a simmer. Once the mixture is simmering, reduced the heat to medium-low, cover the pot, and allow to cook for
25 – 30 minutes. Carefully remove the bay leaves, then transfer the soup to a blender and puree until smooth and creamy, or, leave a bit of texture if you’d like.
Season lightly with a bit of salt, pepper and a dash of nutmeg and re-heat if needed.
Top with grated vegan cheese and green onions, if desired, just before serving.
