Meatless Monday Recipe – Raw Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup

24 Mar

Spring is here and I would like to think the cold is behind us for good!!  So why not try a cold soup for a change?  And yes, it is true!  It IS possible to get a “creamy” soup without the dairy.  There’s no saturated fat, no animal products, just a whole lot of delicious and healthy ingredients combined to bring you this amazing soup dish.


1/2 cup cashews, soaked overnightCream-of-broccoli-soup-300x225
1 head of broccoli, chopped into florets
1/2 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
1 small garlic clove, peeled and chopped
1 cup distilled water
cumin, sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Drain the water from soaked cashews and process in a food processor until they reach the consistency of ricotta. Remove tough stalks from broccoli before chopping florets. You may discard the stalks or use them in another dish later, just peel the hard exterior first and chop them for an addition to salads or anything else. Add florets, avocado, garlic, and chives to processor. Process ingredients until smooth, adding water as needed, about 1/4 a cup at a time until you reach your desired consistency. Add spices to your taste and garnish with parsley or chives and serve.

Makes 2 servings.



Until next time,

Have a fit and fabulous day!
