Creamy Broccoli-Parm Soup

Recipes

This soup is fast and easy to make. If you have an immersion blender you can simply blend all the ingredients together in the pot. Otherwise, you can use a standard blender and follow the directions below. You may be new to nutritional yeast. It helps boost the protein content and gives it a bit of a cheesy flavor. I always partition out my soups into cups to make sure I am eating the right portion. I store them in the refrigerator and it makes any mealtime so much easier! Check out the nutrition facts below. You’ll find this soup is a completely balanced meal including protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats to keep you satiated and your blood sugar regulated…oh stop talking so sexy!

Makes 4 Servings — about 1-1/4 cups each

10 minutes prep| 15 minutes cook

WHAT TO BUY:

  • 2 T Olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic or 2 teaspoons roasted garlic granulates (such as Penzy’s)
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 5 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 7 oz silken tofu
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast (such as Bob’s Red Mill Large Flake)
  • ½ t salt
  • ½ teaspoon black ground pepper
  • ½ t ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

 

WHAT TO DO:

  1. In a medium pot, heat olive oil. Add onion and sauté until translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  2. For a time-saving hack, microwave the broccoli and carrots then coarsely chop and set aside.
  3. Add stock, broccoli, and carrots, then cover with a lid. Simmer until broccoli is tender, about 10 minutes.
  4. In a high-speed blender, combine almond milk, tofu, mustard powder, smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Blend at high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
  5. Pour creamy base into broccoli mixture. Add parmesan cheese, and allow to simmer a few minutes for the flavors to meld. Stir in lemon juice at end and serve.
