NO CREAM OF BROCCOLI SOUP
It's not cold out yet, but we'll soon be getting our soup on once Fall arrives! Here's a great Cream of Broccoli Soup WITHOUT the Dairy.
In a large soup pot:
Saute one white or yellow onion in a little water or coconut oil, until soft.
Add in 3-5 slices garlic cloves - depends on your taste. Saute a few minutes. Watch for burning.
Add 2 heads fresh broccoli - chopped. Saute for a few minutes as you mix up the garlic and onions within pot.
Add enough water to fill up to top of the veggie OR use less if you want a very thick soup.
Add 4 tablespoons veggie broth powder.
Bring it all to a light simmer - don't boil it to death!
Then transfer the veggies and liquid to a high speed blender. Blend until super smooth. Pour the soup back into pot (careful, it's hot!).
Final 2 ingredients, and they are optional to mix in before you bring back to a simmer:
1/4 - 1/2 cup coconut cream (that is just the super thick creamy part at the top of a can of coconut milk - don't use the runny water part)
2 tablespoons corn starch OR flour
Whisk that all up as you heat up.
Serve once cooled down with your favor herbs on top - I added salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and sage. Enjoy!
