Broccoli and Cheese Soup
Recipe from Vegetarian Times

Secret Ingredient: nutritional yeast. This health food store staple has a nutty, fermented flavor that works as a cheese booster in recipes, or can be used to replace cheese altogether in vegan dishes. Try adding 1 to 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast to cream sauces and cheese fillings.
