Isa Does It

Prep
Cook
Serves 6people
Ingredients
For the soup:
1
tbsp olive oil
1
small yellow onion, diced
1/2
tsp salt, plus a pinch
3
cloves garlic, minced
4
cups chopped broccoli stalks and florets
1/2
cup peeled and chopped carrots
1/2
tsp ground turmeric
3
cups vegetable broth
Optional garnishes: chopped tomato, red onions and sprouts
For the cashew cream:
1
cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 2 hours
2
cups vegetable broth
3
tbsp mellow white miso
2
tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
2
tbsp fresh lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
Directions
1.
Prepare the soup: Preheat a 4 quart pot over medium heat and add the oil. Saute the onion in the oil with a pinch of salt just until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds or so, just until fragrant.
2.
Add the broccoli, carrots, turmeric, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and broth.
3.
Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes, until the carrots are very tender.
4.
Prepare the cashew cream: Drain the cashews and place in a blender, along with broth, miso, and nutritional yeast. Blend like crazy, until smooth. This can take anywhere from 1-5 minutes depending on your machine. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula every now and again to make sure you get everything.
5.
When the carrots are tender, add the cashew mixture to the soup. Use an immersion blender to puree, so that only tiny bits of broccoli and carrot are visible. Keep the soup on low heat, partially covered for about 10 minutes, until thickened, stirring occasionally.
6.
Once thickened, add the lemon juice and pepper, taste for seasoning, and serve. I thickens as it cools, so you’ll need to thin out leftovers.
