Cheesy Broccoli Soup
This brilliant little recipe is my go-to example to show how quick and easy and affordable healthy eating can be on a whole food plant-based diet.
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1 Yellow Onion medium, chopped
- 1 Green Capsicum large, chopped
- 1 Jalapeno Pepper medium, seeds removed and chopped
- 4 Garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp Sea Salt
- 6 cups Broccoli chopped into florets
- 4 cups Vegetable Stock
- 1/2 cup Hemp Seeds
- 3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
- Heat the water in a pot over medium heat. Add the onions, capsicum, jalapeno pepper, and garlic. Cook for about three to five minutes until the onions begin to soften. Season the vegetables with salt then add the broccoli and vegetable stock.
- Bring the soup to a gentle boil and cook for 12 to 15 minutes or until the broccoli is very tender.
- Transfer the soup to a blender and add the hemp seeds and nutritional yeast. Carefully blend until smooth. Season the soup with additional salt or nutritional yeast to taste.
- Divide between bowls and enjoy!
