[Voluptuous] Craving soup, nutrtion to refuel from a workout, and, use of limited produce, i made a pot of soup yesterday that turned out yum, if i do say so myself!

i had a quart of no-chicken broth
2 cups of almond milk
1 cup of nutritional yeast
2 cups water
2 white onions
3 organic yukon gold potatoes
1/4 head of organic cauliflower
1 bag frozen organic butternut squash
1/2 bad of sliced carrots
1TBSP cumin
sea salt to taste
1TBSP Tamari

I could have used miso for the broth too, so dont forget that if you try this at home! I used what I had.  I would have added garlic if I had it, but it was all old and squishy.  i was so good, and did the job soup should so well, i would make this again on purpose! i would however get myself a loaf of french peasant bread from crescent bakery in frankfort, next time.  instead, i served it over a little brown rice.  this was a nice textural addition, even though i dont usually go for so many starchy foods all together like that. i loved it for lunch.  at dinner i ate it with a little frank's hot sauce added and that was delish also~ the spice was nice! today i am looking forward to seeing how the flavors merged over night. i would have liked it to be a little thicker, too.  it was much more runny than i was craving.  any suggestions for how to thicken it without adding calories would be most welcome! thanks for reading today!
