Ingredients

For the soup

  • 2 cups broccoli cut into small pieces
  • 2 medium carrots cut into small pieces
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp of coconut oil
  • Salt Pepper to taste

  • 1 onion
  • 2 tsp of coconut oil

Instructions

For the soup

  • Prepare your ingredients - cut carrots into small pieces, cut small pieces of broccoli and chop the onion. Heat the coconut oil in a pan. Add the onions, carrots and broccoli. Sauté the vegetables for 10 minutes on medium / low heat.
  • While the vegetables are cooked, prepare the cream. Mix the coconut milk with the flour. Add to vegetable mixture and stir. Slowly the mixture starts to thicken. If not, add 1 teaspoon more of flour. Then add the vegetable broth and nutritional yeast and leave to simmer until all the vegetables are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Allow the mixture to cool for 15 minutes and blend into the blender according to your preferences. If you like a chewy soup blend just for few seconds, otherwise for 1-2 minutes. Moreover, if you want a more thin soup just add some more vegetable stock.

For grilled onions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Cut an onion in half and each half in half again. Divide the onions into slices with your fingers. Put them in a baking dish and sprinkle with coconut oil. Mix well and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve the soup and garnish with the baked onions and black pepper, or as you wish.
  • Enjoy! :)

Notes

Tips for the Vegan Creamy Broccoli Soup

There two ways you can make the cream.
  • Mix 2tbsp of flour in a cup of coconut milk, or
  • After Sautéing your vegetables, add the flour, mix well with the vegetables and then add the coconut milk.
Both will give you the same delicious result.
