Vegan Broccoli Soup Recipe

Did you know that the word broccoli comes from the Italian plural of broccolo, refers to “the flowering top of a cabbage”. Broccoli is high in vitamin B1, B2, B3 and C, as well as dietary fiber; it also contains multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties. When you cook something from it, use also the stalk – peeled, don’t throw it away!

Instead of cream, potato makes the soup creamy and silky. Potato contains vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6 and C, potassium, magnesium, iron and zinc. The fiber content of a potato with skin (2 g) is equivalent to that of many whole grain breads, pastas, and cereals.

  1. This soup is absolutely delicious and so easy to make! Even my non-veggie family loves it! Merci beaucoup pour votre recette. :)

  2. Very nice recipe. I might use a sweet potato and and a little celery too. Great puree, high vitamin. Want to make it for friend with oral surgery issue.
    Best Regards!

  3. This is so delicious!! First time I made broccoli soup. I did not add potato, lemon juice, but did everything else in the recepie. I did add 1/2 t. Homemade curry powder, fresh garlic, and red pepper, salt & pepper. Perfect blend of spices & delicious broccoli soup!! Will make this again .

  4. This is a great basic broccoli soup! I doubled the recipe so that I could have plenty to either freeze or have for another meal or two. For richness, I added about 1/4 c of my homemade cashew cream. I also added two small, fresh serrano chiles for some heat. My non-vegan, broccoli-hating, 16-year-old daughter had a bowlful and declared it good, for something that had broccoli in it! I will be making this one again, for sure.

  5. Really nice recipe. I followed it closely, and I added a bit of cumin, some kale, and finished it with some grated nutmeg. I also added in some barley that I had left over. Very rich and warm on a cold night. Guests loved it too.
