Ingredients

  • 1 bunch broccoli about 1 1/4 pound or 6-7 cups chopped
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2-4 cloves garlic peeled
  • 4 cups vegetable broth I used Imagine’s No-Chicken
  • 1 large Yukon gold potato cooked, peeled and diced
  • 1/4–1/2 cup raw cashews
  • salt black pepper, and cayenne, to taste

Instructions

  • Place the broccoli, onion, garlic, and vegetable broth in a saucepan. Bring the broth to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer until broccoli is tender, about 8 minutes.
  • Put half of the broccoli and broth into a blender with half of the potato and cashews. Blend at high powder until smooth. Pour into another saucepan, and repeat with the rest of the broccoli, potato, and cashews.
  • Heat the soup, covered, on low for 10 minutes or so. Check seasonings and add salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a pinch of red pepper to taste.

Notes

Curried Cream of Broccoli Soup Variation
Add 1 teaspoon of good, mild curry powder to the broth in the first step. Substitute a cooked, peeled medium sweet potato for the Yukon gold potato, and add a larger pinch of cayenne pepper to finish.
