Cream of Broccoli Soup

Cream of Broccoli Soup

This is a melting pot of 2 different recipes and some of my own adaptations

*2 yellow onions, chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
bit of pepper
10-15 mini carrots, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 head cauliflower, chopped
1 large yukon gold potato, chopped  (I only had yukon at home, I'm sure russet would work great too)
1 can veggie broth
2 C water
1 1/2 C cashews, soaked for at least 30 minutes
Brocolli... i can't remember how much! I buy the bag of chopped broccoli from Costco and probably put in at least 2 cups?  maybe 1 or 2 heads of brocolli?

Let onions, celery, carrots and s&p sweat in a fry pan for about 10 minutes until onions are translucent. Add water or a bit of oil (optional) to help it not stick.
Add in veggie broth, water,  potato and cauliflower and simmer for about 10 minutes.  Add in brocolli florets and let cook until broccoli is tender, about 10 minutes. 
Depending on your texture preference, add 1/2 to all of mixture to blender or food processor.  Add cashews and pulse a bit to desired consistency.
Put back into the pot for a few more minutes to help cashew flavor meld in.

Also freezes/thaws well!

*Ben complained of a strong onion flavor so you could reduce this and add in more for desired flavor.

  1. I made this today and it was truly amazing again! I only used 1 onion and then blended about half of the soup at the end. Delicious!
