Ingredients

How it’s Done:

To make the Vegan Cream of Broccoli Super Soup: In a medium pot, combine the carrot, celery, and thyme. Cover and sweat over medium heat until aromatic, 3-5 minutes. If vegetables start to brown, simply add a splash of water and reduce the heat.
Add the broccoli, cannellini beans, bay leaf, vegetable stock, and water to the pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the broccoli is tender, about 8-10 minutes.
Remove bay leaves. Add nutritional yeast.
Use an immersion or a standard blender to puree the mixture until smooth. If the soup seems too thick, add more broth or water.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Yield: 6 cups

Chef’ Katie’s Tips: 

Chilled Soup: For a chilled version, don’t add the water during the cooking. Instead, add 2 cups of ice when you puree the soup.

Frozen Broccoli: You can also use frozen broccoli. Use 2 pounds frozen broccoli and add as you do in the recipe above. It will take less time for the broccoli to become tender, about 3-5 minutes.

Freeze the Broccoli Stalks: Anytime you trim broccoli, you can freeze the woody stalks.  When you have about 4 cups chopped, you can make this recipe.
