Recipe Re-Do: “Cream” of Broccoli Soup

"Cream" of Broccoli Soup- Vegan

My one year blog anniversary goal is to review some of my old post and re-do my photos/recipes. Some of my post back in the day were pretty bad, heck even now I still struggle with grammar and getting great natural lighting at 9 PM at night. So sorry for the repeat recipes but you will be very happy if you give this a try.

This cream of broccoli soup might just be one of my favorite things ever. Loaded with fresh vegetables AND protein thanks to a half cup of quinoa. Quinoa not only makes the recipe richer and creamier it also acts as a thickener. By the time you get done blending you will not even know it’s there. Who needs cream when you have a good blender and a touch of almond milk.

There are many vegan cream of broccoli soups out there but I promise you this one is the best I’ve ever tasted. So thick and tasty… it always surprises me how tasty vegetables actually are.

Recipe Re-Do: “Cream” of Broccoli Soup

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 6 -7 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Broccoli Florets
  • 2 Stalks Celery Chopped
  • 1/2 Large White Onion Chopped
  • 2 Small Carrots Chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Dry Quinoa
  • 4 Cups Vegetable Broth
  • 2 Cups Unsweetened Original Almond Milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil on medium high heat in a large pot. Sautee chopped onions, carrots and celery in the olive oil until fragrant and onions are translucent, about 8 minutes.
  2. Add broth, quinoa, broccoli, pepper and salt to the pot, turn heat on high until broth is boiling. Once boiling, reduce the heat to simmer and cook covered 15-20 minutes, until veggies are soft.
  3. Transfer soup to a food processor or blender and add almond milk.
  4. Blend the soup until smooth. If your blender or food processor isn’t that powerful it could take a few minutes.

  4. This soup looks delish! Love cream of broccoli. Even though it’s my least favourite activity, my food photography has vastly improved since I started blogging. I actually cringe at old photos. The pictures do not do the recipes justice!

  5. Definitely my ideal comfort soup.

  6. This looks wonderful! Broccoli happens to be my all-time favorite vegetable (I eat at least an entire head of it a day… yep, I’m addicted 😉 ). This looks so easy too. If I don’t get to it this summer, I’m definitely going to make it when I return home for Christmas break – it would be perfect for a chilly, snowy night! Bookmarked!
