If the best soups are the easiest ones to make – then this is the very best soup. It consists of a few simple ingredients, boiled together, then whirred up in the Vitamix. Add some seasonings and you’re done. It is exactly that fast and easy. And it’s tasty, in a clean, pure, straightforward way.
Just like you should be drinking more water, you should be making more soup. Soup is not only nourishing and delicious, it is a weight-loss home run. A must-have in your culinary repertoire.
Creamy Broccoli Soup
TOTAL TIME: 30 min.
2 heads of broccoli, rinsed and chopped
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and quartered
4 cloves of garlic, peeled
1 box of low sodium vegetable broth, or 4 cups of homemade broth
1 handful (about ¾ cup) of raw cashews
2 tablespoons white miso
In a medium pot, boil the broccoli, onion, garlic and cashews together in the vegetable broth.
Add a bit of water if needed to cover.
Boil until you can insert a fork easily into the vegetables, about 10 minutes.
Scoop out the vegetables and nuts, and whir them up in a Vitamix or high-speed blender, adding broth from the pot as needed for consistency.
Once you have a batch that’s creamed, transfer it back to the soup pot and scoop out more boiled veg and broth to blend. You’ll do this a few times to get everything creamy.
Once all the creamed soup is back in the pot, add the miso.
Stir slowly on low heat to dissolve and incorporate.
Salt and pepper to taste.
