i had made vegan broccoli soup for dinner tonight and in fact this has been a hit for my husband and i. we by all means are not vegan but we do believe in eating healthy. if we can substitute a dish with a healthier version we will and we tend to stick with more fruits and vegetables. this soup is very simple to make and also tastes really delicious - you'll be surprise how great it tastes. i got the recipes on allrecipes.com. don't mind to let me know what you think if you ever do try it.

ingredients (4 servings):
1 cup raw cashews
5 cups vegetable broth, divided
2 yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 onion, finely chopped
4 1/2 cups coarsely chopped broccoli
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

blend cashews and 1 cup vegetable broth in a blender until smooth, about 1 minute.

pour the remaining 4 cups vegetable broth into a large pot; add potatoes and onion. bring to a simmer, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. stir in broccoli and basil; return to a simmer. cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.

stir cashew mixture into soup; add salt and black pepper. bring to a simmer and immediately remove from heat. transfer about half the soup to a blender; blend until smooth. return blended soup to pot and stir well. serve immediately.
