Cream of Vegetable Soup With Dumplings. Anything with dumplings is a comfort food, and by that I mean, something that I ate as a child that my mother made from scratch. Although her soup had chicken and this soup is vegan, the creamy texture and yummy flavor can provide the same comfort that any delicious, hot soup can. The best thing about vegetable soup is that it is so user friendly. You can add any vegetables that you like to a soup base, add the garlic cashew creme, and create your own vegetable soup. For this soup, I used mushrooms, onions, broccoli, carrots and a jalapeno for a little flavor. And of course, the dumplings are the star of the soup! Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
