Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup

This was my first attempt at a blending soup using the good ol’ Vitamix. I modified Leanne’s recipe and I think it turned out really well. When you taste this, you won’t believe it’s vegan. 

What you’ll need:

  • 1 head of cauliflower (chopped)
  • 1 bunch of broccoli (divided in half and chopped)
  • 3 or 4 cups of almond milk (depending on how thick you like your soup)
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Salt, pepper and onion powder

What you’ll do:

  1. Sautee the yellow onion in a pot until soft (add salt and pepper to taste)
  2. Throw in the cauliflower and almond milk, bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes
  3. Add in half of the broccoli and cook for 5 minutes
  4. Pour this concoction into your blender and blend
  5. Returned blended soup to the pot and add in the remaining broccoli. WARNING: The soup can get really thick and spatter (that soup is hot and will burn you!)
  6. Cook until the broccoli is soft (about 10-15 minutes)

What was crazy to me was how creamy it turned out. That cauliflower sure knows how to play a part :)

What’s your favorite blended soup?

After Work Fruit Bowl
I got out of work late. My blood sugar was dropping fast. I stumbled into the kitchen. Not much left. A few bananas, and two pluots. Mango and cashews in the freezer. So I threw this together, topped it with coconut flakes, and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was.
2 bananas
2 pluots
1 frozen mango
1 tbsp coconut flakes
5 cashews
Chop up the bananas and pluots. Blend the mango, pour it on your lovely fruit, top with coconut and cashews.
