Not only is this Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup an absolute stunner, it’s seriously delicious too. Super creamy and packed full of flavour, it’s the kind of comfort food I crave when they weather is cold like now.
What gives this Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup the best flavour?
Frying the broccoli and cauliflower first – this helps give a nice depth and caramelisation to the veggies with ultimately yields a better tasting soup. You may be thinking, why did she add cauliflower when it’s a broccoli soup? Adding a little cauliflower helps with with a really creamy texture and a well balanced flavour without too much extra fat.
Vegan cream cheese – using a vegan cream cheese instead of grated vegan cheddar gives a lovely creaminess without being too overpowering. Of course, you can use any vegan cheese you like so feel free to experiment!
I used the vegan cream cheese from Nush Foods as it’s so good and without preservatives. Just almonds, carob gum, a little potato starch and vegan live probiotic cultures. The other brand of vegan cream cheese I like is Violife Cream Cheese and it works well in this recipe too.
