“Cream” of Roasted Broccoli Soup

By Comowater @Como_Water

Vegan Broccoli Soup

Although the weather is all over the place this winter (literally, we’ve had 40 degree temperature swings in 24 hours!)… I’m still craving soup. Almost constantly.

Enter this “cream” of roasted broccoli soup recipe. What I absolutely adore about this recipe is that it uses frozen broccoli, a staple I almost always have in my kitchen and boasts an incredibly creamy texture without an ounce of cream. How did I pull it off? Three ways.

First, I blended in a wee bit of oat milk in addition to the vegetable broth I used to make the soup smooth. Second, I blended the broccoli mixture with a cooked russet potato. And third, I blended in some raw cashews that had been soaking in water over night. Together, these three steps took this soup from flat to stunning. There’s so much depth, but harmonious depth, not the “trying to do too much” depth and my taste buds couldn’t be happier. Simple to make, comforting without the cream, and bright green to make you forget winter’s gray skies and cold winds–if just for a moment.

:D
