Raw Broccoli Soup

This Raw Broccoli Soup is thick, creamy, nutty and very un-raw-broccoli-like. It's honestly the best cream of broccoli soup I've ever had.

Ingredients

Raw Broccoli Soup

  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, leaves only
  • 1/8 cup nutritional yeast (not raw)*
  • 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. fine sea salt

Cashew Cream

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked**
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice, optional
  • 1/4 tsp. fine sea salt

Instructions

Cashew Cream

  • Add all the cashew cream ingredients into a blender. Blend on the highest setting until completely smooth. Season to taste. Set 1/2 cup of the cream aside and leave the rest in the blender.

Broccoli Soup

  • Blend all the ingredients together with the remaining cashew cream. Blend on the highest setting until completely smooth. Season to taste.
  • To serve, pour the soup into bowls. Add a few spoonfuls of the set aside cashew cream and swirl it into the soup. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and a few leaves of parsley. Serve warm, straight from the blender.
  • Store leftover soup covered in the refrigerator for a few days, though best within the first 24-48 hours.

Notes

*Nutritional yeast adds cheesiness to this soup. However, it's not raw so leave it out if you're going for 100% raw soup.
**Soak the cashews in water for at least 8 hours (or overnight) so they soften up and are easy to blend. To quick-soak cashews, pour boiling hot water over the cashews and soak for 1 hour uncovered. When the cashews are done soaking, drain the water and rinse the cashews thoroughly. (Note: if you do the quick soak, the soup will no longer be raw).
***Prep time does not include soaking the cashews (8 hours).
