Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium-hight heat. Stir in onions and garlic and cook until onions are translucent, about 7 minutes.
  2. Add asparagus, cauliflower, and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes, until asparagus and cauliflower are tender.
  3. Transfer soup to a blender (this may have to be done in batches) and blend until smooth. You can also do this with an immersion blender. Return to heat and stir in lemon juice, nutritional yeast, and salt and pepper.

  4. Serve with desired toppings.
