How to make a "cream of" soup vegan- easy!
This is general recipe that you can refine and use for any vegetable you've got that you're not sure what to do with: asparagus, brocolli, potato, carrot etc. There are a couple examples below to give you an idea, but just use whatever you've got that's fresh, delicious, and hopefully organic.
Basically just take your vegetable and boil in a small amount of water until mostly soft and cooked, but don't overcook! Add in spices and seasonings: whatever you like to use: fresh basil, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, mild chili powder etc etc.
Meanwhile, sautee a whole chopped onion or leek in olive oil until cooked. Add some soy sauce at the very end. Leeks are always a great base for soup and are healthy and cheap.
Save just a few of your cooked vegetables to add later for texture and color.
Now take your cooked vegetables and onions and put in a blender with about 12 ounces PLAIN soymilk and blend. Often you'll have to have an extra bowl as you'll be making more than one blender-full of soup. Pour back into pot and cook 3 minutes. Add in your cooked, sliced, vegetables you put aside and enjoy!

For this one try adding a fresh squeezed lemon at the end and top with dill.Super good for you!
