Dairy-Free Soup

If you’re like me, you grew up eating cream of broccoli soup that was made either from a can or was made with heavy cream. I’ve been on a dairy-free diet for almost 10 years already, and I think I’ve mastered the art of making dairy-free soups. And, this Vegan Broccoli Soup is simply scrumptious!

The trick is to use a high-speed blender and a source of healthy plant-based fat, such as nuts, avocado, or coconut milk. For today’s vegan cream of broccoli soup recipe, I used half of an avocado to add creaminess and thickness to this dairy-free soup. You won’t believe how the ingredients transform into a light and fluffy texture so fast in the blender.

Recipe Steps

Step One

The first step of this recipe is to gather up your ingredients, including roasted broccoli florets. You can either roast frozen broccoli florets, or you have roast fresh broccoli florets. If you’re on an oil-free diet, you can use steamed broccoli for this recipe. You’ll need about 3 cups of roasted broccoli florets for this soup.

Step Two

The next step is to combine the ingredients into your blender. I do recommend using a high-speed blender like a Blendtec or a Vitamix.

Step Three

The last step is to blend the ingredients together. You can either blend the soup until it’s steaming in the pitcher, or you can blend it together and transfer the soup to the stovetop to heat to simmering.

This recipe makes enough for two big servings or four small ones. I like to serve it with a side of grain-free crackers or gluten-free toast. If you aren’t vegan and are looking to add more protein to this recipe, you can always use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth.

The soup is creamy with a silky texture, and the broccoli flavor is mild. I hope you love it as much as I do!
