This broccoli soup is creamy and delicious that you would not believe that it is actually vegan. No Cream! No Cheese! How did I do it? It is easy when you have the right ingredients in the right proportions.
Here's another vegan superfood that you will want to try this fall season. . First off, I used the cruciferous twin of Broccoli - Cauliflowers.
The two vegetables are similar in many ways, but cauliflower florets have a more delicate taste relatively speaking. They are less fibrous than Broccoli, hence offering a creamy texture when they are cooked and blended.
The other secret ingredient in getting the creamy texture is nutritional yeast. The only other instance I have used nutritional yeast is when I prepared Cabbage Kofta and I have been a fan of it ever since. Nutritional yeast gives a cheese-like taste and adds to the creamy texture.
Apart from that, it is a decent source of protein too. So, I was not concerned when my kids wanted to skip dinner for an additional bowl of broccoli soup 😉
This broccoli soup without cream is super easy to prepare and it took less than 30 minutes for me. Check out my video for detailed instructions.
A healthy soup such as this is exactly what you need to cope with the upcoming cooler season. Try a serving today with a piece of dry toast or some crackers.
