First time using nutritional yeast. I used powder instead of flakes and my soup turned out quite bitter. Was that the reason?

That could be the reason. Not all nutritional yeasts are created equal. The powder would definitely be stronger.

Oh, Jill, why is ‘comments’ turned off on YouTube? I ask only because I wanted to post there and express how incredibly wonderful this soup is! I have my own recipe for leek and potato soup which I am quite proud of, but this has taken it to another level! I couldn’t wait till dinner to try it so I’ve had a bowl for lunch and will certainly be having it again for dinner! I halved the recipe and used my Instant Pot, cooking it for 8 minutes after having sautéd briefly the leeks and potatoes. You are a continued inspiration to me. Keep up the good work. Love from the UK.

I’m looking forward to trying this. We are currently self isolating and I don’t have any leaks but I’m hoping a few brown onions will also do the trick.

Help. I’ve gathered the ingredients and am cleaning potatoes right now. The recipe calls for 2 cups broth, but the video seems to be using 4 c. Which is correct?

It is 4 cups or one liter. Thanks for letting me know.

Recipe above says 2L. I thought that meant two liters???? Which is the right amount?

Reply

Yes, that is 2 liters.

I made this soup recipe this evening and it was truly delicious! Didn’t change a thing. Hubby said it was a keeper and he’s not a vegan! Thanks for a yummy recipe.

Wow! I currently transitioning to a WFPB lifestyle. Tried this with my meat-loving family last night and got rave reviews. Thank you!

Side note:. We also think this could double as a sauce or gravy with the right meal.
