1/4 medium onion, diced
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
Spray oil or olive oil

Veggies
2 clusters of cherry tomatoes on the vine (about 1 pound or 450 grams)
2 cups mushrooms, sliced or left whole
2 cups fresh spinach
2 greens onions, thinly sliced

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350F (176C). Line a roasting tray with parchment paper. Place cherry tomatoes on the tray and spray with a little oil (or brush with olive oil, of preferred). Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast for 30-45 minutes. Set aside (keep warm).

2. Warm an oiled skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Set aside (keep warm).

3. Warm an oiled skillet over medium heat. Add Β tofu and onion. Break up tofu using a spoon (you want largish pieces). Add nutritional yeast and turmeric and then gently stir tofu mixture. Season to taste. Cook for about five minutes.

Cheesy Tomato Soup

I love to devour bowls of soup with toast on cold rainy days or when I’m feeling sick. Soup somehow makes it all better!

I’ve added nutritional yeast to my tomato soup recipe, which gives it a delicious cheesy and creamy taste.
