Easy Cream of Broccoli Soup {Dairy-Free}

Original Post 11-16-08


I am super happy to be home after traveling in the worst snow storm that we've had in a decade, and have declared it low-key recovery week around here. Time to cozy up and enjoy heat and blankets. It's also the perfect time to eat hot soup.  


I wanted to share a good broccoli soup recipe that we enjoy.  I like this one because:


1.  It calls for no flour thickening, so it reheats well.

2.  It calls for no cheese although it can be added to individual bowls.
3.  It's a great recipe for consuming healthy, delicious homemade chicken broth.

DAIRY-FREE CREAM OF BROCCOLI SOUP
1 chopped onion
1 diced carrot
1 diced celery stalk
1 clove garlic
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups chopped broccoli
2 cups dairy-free milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground black pepper

In a large stock pot, combine onion, chicken broth, carrots, celery and garlic. Bring to a boil.

Add broccoli, cover and cook for 5 minutes or until tender.

Remove 1 cup of cooked broccoli to add back to puree later.

Transfer rest of ingredients to a blender or food processor and puree. 

Return puree to stock pot, add milk, salt and pepper, & broccoli pieces.  Heat through over medium heat.

Top with your favorite dairy-free cheese.

Serve with delicious Dutch Oven Bread!

This recipe looks fantastic! Unfortunately, we can't get that type of milk where I live, just the regular soy, almond etc. Which would you recommend instead?
Thanks!

Jenna, either should work. Just make sure it's not a sweetened or vanilla kind. ;)
