Broccoli Soup


Description

This Broccoli Soup is creamy and delicious; you’ll never guess it’s vegan!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (freshly grated, if possible)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 3 cups chopped broccoli (stems included, from about 1 large head)
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large stock pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and cook until softened and slightly browned, about 8 minutes
  3. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the salt, pepper, nutmeg, lemon juice, and vegetable stock and bring to a simmer.
  5. Add the broccoli and bring to a simmer again. Simmer until the broccoli is soft, about 10 minutes.
  6. Stir in the beans.
  7. Transfer the soup, in batches if necessary, to a blender. Blend on medium to desired consistency. I prefer to leave some texture, but you can also blend until perfectly smooth if you prefer.
  8. Bring the soup back to temperature on the stove.
  9. Enjoy!
