Broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables. It is the only vegetable my kids want to eat every day. To make it less monotonous and boring, I try to come up with different recipes that have broccoli as one of the ingredients. I made this soup, and they loved it.
Brocolli is an excellent source of vitamin C, K folic acid, potassium, and fiber. It is great for building bones and skin collagen. This vegetable has high contents of antioxidants which helps to neutralize the effects of free radicals.
Its high fiber and antioxidant levels can aid in controlling blood sugar levels as well as reducing weight. It can as well enhance digestion and reduce constipation.
This Vegan broccoli soup is healthy, creamy and delicious. It is also effortless and easy to make.
Though this soup is vegan, it is thick, cheese-like and satisfying. The cashews and nutritional yeast make this soup more flavorful.
To make this vegan broccoli soup, bring a pot of water or vegetable broth to a boil, add salt and broccoli florets. Bring the heat to be medium and steam the vegetables for about 5-8 minutes or until tender. Remove any excess liquid left and set aside to cool.
In a blender add the soaked cashews, the steamed broccoli, coconut milk, nutritional yeast, and turmeric. Puree the mixture on high speed until it is smooth and creamy.
Transfer the pureed mixture to the saucepan and cook on medium low for about 5 minutes occasionally stirring to combine and thicken the ingredients.
