Ingredients
  

  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 russet or yellow potato
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 3 cup water
  • 1 low-sodium veggie stock cube
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tbsp miso

Instructions
 

  • Peel the carrots, potatoes, and broccoli stem. Roughly chop the carrots, potatoes, onion, broccoli stem, and celery, and pulse them in a food processor until they are diced. Add them to a soup pot. Pulse the broccoli florets in a food processor until they are in small pieces and add them to the soup pot.
  • Add the vegetables, water, stock cube, onion powder, garlic powder, dill, and smoked paprika to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. While the soup is cooking, add the cashews, nutritional yeast, garlic cloves, lemon juice, and miso to a blender and set aside.
  • Carefully transfer the soup to the blender, blend until smooth, and return to the soup pot (this might have to be done in a couple of batches depending on the size of your blender). If the soup is too thick, add a little water to thin it out.
  • Serve, and garnish with some fresh or dried dill and black pepper if desired.

Notes

  • You could dice the vegetables by hand before adding them to the soup pot, but we find that using a food processor to dice them makes meal prep a lot quicker and easier.
  • You can use frozen broccoli in place of fresh.
