Feel-Good Brocolli Soup
This one's good for the rainy day blues (and people who hate soy milk)...
What You'll Need:
1 cup raw cashews
5 cups vegetable broth
1 large onion
4 cups broccoli florets
baked garlic bread
(A) In a food processor, blend raw cashews with 1 cup of vegetable broth.
(B) Cut potatoes into tiny cubes... Finely slice the onion. In a big-ass soup pot, put in 4 cups of vegetable broth, the onion, and the potatoes. Let simmer for about 10 minutes.
(C) Stir in broccoli florets and some dried basil. Let cook for another 10 minutes or so.
(D) Pour the mixture from the food processor into the soup pot. Then take about 3/4 of the total soup and put it back into the food processor to blend smooth. Pour the mixture back into the pot, so there are just a few chunks of vegetables left over. Salt and pepper to taste. (Garlic salt=good). Add nutritional yeast for a cheesier flavor.
(E) Top with baked garlic bread.
