Ingredients 

Roasted Broccoli & Onions

  • 1 cup cashews soaked 30-60 minutes in warm water
  • 6 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup diced onion about ½ onion
  • 3 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Additional soup ingredients:

Instructions

  • Add your cashews to a container and cover with boiling hot water. Let sit 30-60 minutes to soften.
  • While the cashews are soaking, chop the broccoli and onion and preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Add the chopped broccoli and onion to a baking tray. Then, toss with the avocado oil, 2 Tbsp of nutritonal yeast, chili flakes, garlic powder, and salt until evenly coated.
  • Add the pan of vegetables to the oven and bake for 30 minutes, removing at the 15 minute mark to briefly stir. Then, remove from the oven and let cool.
  • Once the vegetables are done cooking, strain the cashews and add them to the blender along with the vegetable broth. Turn to the blender to a medium setting and blend for 2-3 minutes until smooth. Next, add in the roasted vegetables, spinach, and an additional 2 Tbsp of nutritional yeast. Blend for another 2 minutes until the soup is super thick and creamy.
  • Remove the soup from the blender and add it to a pot. Cook over medium heat for 5-10 inutes until the soup is hot. Then, remove from the heat and serve with your choice of toppings. Enjoy!

Notes

  • For toppings, I recommend salted roasted pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, coconut cream, chili oil, broccoli, fresh greens, or vegan parmesan cheese.
  • For this recipe, I used a Kitchenaid K400 blender which is great for soups.
  • Leftover soup can be stored in a closed container in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  • There is not a good substitute for the soaked cashews in this recipe, however, you could try using 1 can of full-fat coconut milk instead. If doing this, you may want to reduce the veggie broth from 3 cups to 2 cups. 
  • I highly recommend serving this broccoli soup with a side of toasted spelt bread!
