Comfy-Healing Vegan Broccoli Soup

The rich and creamy texture of this soup will make you think it’s cream based, but it’s absolutely dairy free and delicious! This recipe is also gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, soy-free, vegan and only plant-based.

Around the fall and with winter on the horizon we have the necessity of warm, liquid coating and hugging our gut with comfy-healing food vibes. Eating soup during cold weather just seems right, a warm filling dish loaded with veggies, protein and healthy fats is really satisfying.

Vegan Broccoli Soup – How It’s Made

There’s a lot of broccoli in this recipe hence a lot of vitamins, antioxidants and fibre. Usually some recipes combine broccoli with potatoes in order to get a creamier texture.

In this broccoli soup, avocado is what makes it creamy, the lemon juice gives it tang, and bell peppers and leeks add a sweet and savory flavor that pulls it all together. Finally the spices and garlic enhances all these flavors.

There is no need to roast the veggies in the oven. In order to preserve all vitamins, broccoli has to keep it’s bright green color. If you boil or cook it for too long, there’s nothing left, probably just the taste.

I finished the soup with some micro-greens and a touch of coconut aminos which is a sweet and sour sauce similar to soy sauce. It gives an extra kick to the final dish. And if you like your soup with bread try this gluten free sourdough bread – toasted its even better.

I think this creamy vegan broccoli soup doesn’t need any additional flavors at all, so it has no chicken or vegetable stock, no milk, no butter or cream. The avocado helps with thickness enough, so there is no need to add flour either.

This soup looks so lovely, can I use something else instead of avocado? I don't really like the taste... will this affect the texture?

You can also use pureed potatoes for the "creamy" effect.
