Vegan Cheese & Broccoli Soup

Vegan Cheese & Broccoli Soup recipe served in a bowl.

Ditchin the dairy never tasted so good! I am officially convinced that cashews are the answer to all my problems. 🙌⁣

If someone would have told me 10 years ago that I could replicate one of my favorites soups and instead of using cheese use cashews, I would have been like….you trippin. But now I am pretty much obsessed and have them in my pantry at all times.

  • Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots, broccoli, salt, nutmeg, red chilli flake and pepper and sauté until softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and garlic and stir, then add the broth and simmer for 25 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Let cool slightly.
  • Ladel half of your soup mixture into a blender, making sure to get all of the potatoes particularly. To the blender add your cashews, apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast and Dijon mustard. Pulse until smooth-ish. If it seems too thick you can add a little water to thin it out.
  • Pour blender contents back into your pot and stir and simmer for another 10 mins. ⁣Serve with crusty bread or your favorite cracker.
