Vegan Creamy, Cream of Broccoli Soup

I love the richness, the creaminess, the texture, everything about this soup.  It’s just beautiful in every way!

Serves 4 as a meal (about 2 large bowls each)

Ingredients:

2 onions, diced

2 celery stalks, chopped

5 oz carrots, chopped

1 parsnip, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 lbs broccoli florets

6 cups broth

6 cups water

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1/2 tsp each oregano and dill

black pepper, to taste

1 1/2 cups cashews blended with 1 cup water until smooth cream is formed

 

Method:

In a large soup pot over medium heat, water sautee the onion until translucent.  Add celery, parsnip, carrots and garlic, sautee about 5 minutes.  Add the broth and water, raise heat and bring to a boil.  Add broccoli, red pepper, oregano and dill.  Cover and simmer until broccoli is bright green and soft (just a few minutes!).  Blend, in batches, until smooth.  Stir in cashew cream and black pepper to taste.

Enjoy!
