A Cheezy Vegan Broccoli Soup

As regular readers know, this blog brings a variety of articles, studies, thoughts, music and recipes! It is presented in a magazine style - we hope something for everyone. Our main focus is about the Low Carb Higher (Healthy) Fat lifestyle, LCHF for short, and you can read/find out more about that here

In recent months we have seen that more and more we have regular readers, and followers, who choose to eat vegetarian or vegan. With that in mind I am passing on this recipe suggestion from Martine at Low Carb Vegan Blog. She says this vegan soup is really creamy, tasty and delicious. The cheesy flavour of this soup comes from a combination of miso, nutritional yeast, lemon juice and unroasted cashews (you could use soy cream or almond butter for even fewer carbs). You can get these ingredients from a health food store. This soup is quite quick to make, but make sure to soak or boil your cashews in advance if you do not have a high powered blender. Serve on its own or with some crackers or low carb bread.

1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1 pound broccoli, use both stem and florets
1 large carrot, in chunks
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
750 ml water
1 vegan bouillon cube
100 gram unroasted cashews, boiled for 10 minutes or soaked for 2-4 hours
250 ml water
2 tablespoons shiro miso
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Jan, good to know! I'm an omnivore, but I'm always cooking something for someone whose diet is restricted in some way. Happy to find a way to make a "cheesy" broccoli soup for a vegan. (I just posted my meatless chili.) I've never cooked with miso myself, but I like it.

Years ago I used to go out to eat to this place that made the best broccoli soup....and that is saying a lot since I am not a broccoli fan. ALthough I did hear on the radio last week that if you are going to eat a green, that is the one to pick. Wonder if I can still handle it that way in a soup better than alone? Guess I need to try. Thanks for you sweet comment about loving the mix post I do here in Blogland. That was sweet of you. Thanks for coming to visit and please come anytime.
