Many of you may have read that I had a problem with too many fruits and sugars in my diet. If not, then you can read it Here. As I was really loving having a smoothie in the morning, my body was not loving it as much. So I’ve been playing with new combinations to blend. This is one of them. I really enjoy putting many items into a blender and having a great soup in seconds instead of hours!
“Cream” of Broccoli Soup (Paleo/ Vegan/ Dairy Free/ Raw/ Gluten Free)
2 c. broccoli-chopped
1/2 c. onion- chopped (one small onion)
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
1 Tbsp. avocado or olive oil (or desired oil)
1/3 c. cashews (or ground flax**)
1 -1 1/2 c. boiling water
sea salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients into a Vitamix or high powered blender, starting with 1 cup of water. Blend on high until smooth. Add more water if too thick. Makes two servings.
** If using ground flax instead of cashews your consistency won’t be quite as creamy.
