Recipe Difficulty: Medium. Attention to Detail is required to not overcook the veggies in this recipe. You'll find me hovering over the pot making this soup, then tasting at the end, meticulously, to adjust salt, lemon and herbs.

What even is "Green Goddess"??
Green Goddess typically refers to a salad dressing or sauce. Often with mayo, sour cream and typically fresh herbs including tarragon, chives, and parsley. It gets its name from the bright green colour of the dressing. Some versions include anchovy, lemon juice, vinegar & Dijon mustard. Green Goddess dressing is believed to have originated in the 1920s at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. It was created by the hotel's head chef, Philip Roemer, to honor actor George Arliss, who was staying at the hotel while performing in a play called "The Green Goddess." The dressing was served at the restaurant for years and was eventually popularized.
About my Green Goddess Soup Recipe
I love this soup. It is literally Goddess worthy. There's a ton of fresh green goodness with all the veggies and fresh herbs. For veggies in my recipe I use French Green Beans, Zucchini, Edamame, Green Peas, Tarragon, Chives and Mint.
The base is a lovely creamy broth made from an easy home made veg stock with Greek Style Fresh Start Fauxmage melted in. A bit of miso paste in the broth too, just for a bit of umami. (a bit of miso paste or a splash of soy sauce can go a long way in creating deeper & more complex flavours in vegan cooking)
The fauxmage is an almond based baked feta style vegan cheese. It's rich and has a bit of brightness. A delicious & simple way to add creaminess without using dairy products. If you can't get your hands on some I would try using cashew cream to taste as an alternative.
Seasoned properly with salt and fresh lemon juice, the flavours in this soup come alive. A bit of chili is nice too. Not too much, just a bit for warmth.
