Looking for a veggie-loaded soup that your whole family will love? Say hello to this vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup! My family can’t get enough of it. It’s easy to whip up, delicious, and healthy, making it a regular feature on our meal plan.
The creamy base of this soup is a slight twist on my vegan alfredo sauce recipe, but instead of using flour, I’ve opted for cornstarch. Not only does this give the soup a silky-smooth texture, but it also makes it gluten-free.
The beauty of this soup lies in its versatility. For a cheesy twist on the classic broccoli soup, just stir in some vegan cheddar after cooking until it melts and melds into the soup. Or, nutritional yeast works wonders too, giving you that cheesy kick without actual cheese.
If you’re aiming for an oil-free soup, you can leave out the butter. However, I’d recommend sticking with the no-chicken bouillon cubes. They contain a little oil but add a depth of flavor to the soup that really ties everything together.
Whether you need a comforting dinner for a chilly evening or a light lunch on a hot day, this Cream of Broccoli Soup is a hit anytime!
Serve up this vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup, and watch it quickly become a staple in your family’s favorite meals.
