We love soups in our house. They are delicious, quick, and provide many hearty meals from one batch. Simple soups are ideal for families and busy lives, or a relaxed weekend afternoon. This Creamy Broccoli Soup is no exception – as a matter of fact, it is one of our favorites. Full of flavor and goodness, this creamy broccoli soup will delight, and is 100% dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan (of course!).
We make this all year-round. You can use fresh broccoli, or frozen. At the nearby big-box store we can find large bags of frozen organic florets which enables us to make this almost anytime. But it becomes something absolutely divine when made with the gorgeous, fresh-from-the-garden, broccoli we can get for a few weeks in the Summer at the farm stand down the street.
This recipe, like many on our site, is made a lot easier with a few important tools. For this one, a blender is important and we love our Vitamix. You can certainly make this recipe with any blender, so have no fear. But, if you are thinking about getting a super-duper blender, we use our Vitamix several times a day, every day, and have for several years. It just keeps going.
Husband and wife, father and mother, working adults – Greg and Georgia formed Full of Beans to share encouragement, inspiration, and tips to get you started on, and maintain, a plant-based vegan diet (even if you think you don't have the time/money/skills/energy). See the About page for more.
