Posted on January 12, 2016

One reason to love cold weather? It’s a great reason to eat more soup! Nothing warms from the inside out like a hot, flavorful bowl packed with nutrients and a savory broth – and if that broth is creamy and cheezy, even better! This season, combat the cold with the cheeziest, most deliciously dairy-free soup recipes ever – which all happen to feature Daiya, of course.

Filled to the brim with green veggies and creamy deliciousness, broccoli cheddar soup is a classic – and this version is to die for. It’s got a whole head of broccoli, warming winter spices, some flour to thicken (use gluten-free if needed) and two different kinds of Daiya – our ever-popular Cheddar Shreds and new Monterey Jack Farmhouse Block.

Think you can’t enjoy French onion soup without the rich dairy or beef broth? Think again! This plant-based variation is every bit as decadent and delicious as the original, made with Daiya Mozzarella Style Shreds (or Provolone Slices) and a savory, hearty base.

If you’ve never thought of adding beer to soup, you should give it a try – and this recipe is an excellent place to start. The combination of ale and Daiya Cheddar is fantastic, made even more so by adding fresh vegetables, dairy-free cream cheese (use our Plain Cream Cheese Style Spread) and a dash of hot sauce.
