Cream of Broccoli Soup

Now, a creamy soup without cream. How can it be? 🙂

Here I use avocado and puree it into the soup once cooked. It adds all the creamy, delicious texture you’re looking for in soup, plus a healthy dose of good for you fat! All the while, without adding any dairy, making a suitable choice for those with intolerances. If you’re not an avocado fan (WHAT??!!), I promise you won’t taste it. It really just adds the thick delicious creamy texture to your bowl.

I like drizzling my soup in some Frank’s Red Hot sauce, garnished with fresh basil. OR my mom’s amazing recipe for homemade hot peppers that we make annually and preserve. But don’t stop there. There’s a number of ways to enjoy this simple soup. To make this a more filling meal, add a scoop of brown rice, barley, quinoa, or any of your favourite grains. Or pack some protein with some cooked or canned beans or lentils to make this a heartier dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp cooking oil of choice

  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 broccoli heads cut into large florets
  • 1 avocado peeled & pitted
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Garnish with your favourite hot sauce or chili flakes optional

Instructions

  • In a large sauce pan over medium heat, add your cooking oil and sauté the onion and garlic for 2 minutes.
  • Add the broth and broccoli, and bring to a low boil. Cook covered for about 8 minutes until broccoli is fork tender.
  • Remove from heat, and add the avocado. Then using an immersion blender, puree the soup and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve your soup garnished with hot sauce or chili flakes if desired.

Notes

If you do not have an immersion blender, you may carefully transfer to a regular blender, processing small portions at a time. Use extreme caution and do not fill the blender to the top when blending hot liquids as this can cause spillage and burns.
