Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup (grain-free + paleo)

Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup (Grain-free + Paleo)

The thing that drives Kevin absolutely, crazy insane?

When I create a really, really, really good recipe for the blog… and then never make it again.

It’s not that I don’t want to make it again, I do. But I create upwards of 15 recipes a week. Going back to old favorites just… doesn’t happen.

Onward and upward I say!

Kevin couldn’t disagree more. If it were up to him, we’d eat the same three things – my Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup the Rum Balls from my Christmas Dessert Cookbook (coming November 5!) and these Homemade 3-Ingredient Turtles, day in and day out for the rest of eternity.

Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup (Grain-free + Paleo)

So, while going back in time and making huge batches of Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup just wasn’t in the cards this weekend, making a *new* Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup was totally, totally doable.

Gotta keep it fresh and exciting for y’all ;)

And like, seriously, this is good soup.

Add it to a casserole, eat it on it’s own…

Use it just as you would “regular” cream of broccoli soup.

  1. This sounds delicious, just about to make it. I was wondering, i have some cachew/almond base yogourt (vegan) and I dont want to use as much of my freshly homemade almond milk, can i substitute some of the milk for yogourt and still have a nice creamy texture and taste?

  2. This is the perfect Paleo friendly “creamy” soup! Definitely makes you feel like you’re cheating and eating something that’s a no-no! I loved it! I didn’t have almond milk at home, so used one can full-fat Coconut milk and one cup So Delicious brand unsweetened Coconut milk. It turned out perfect. Thanks for the great recipe! :)

  3. Made this last night and it was outstanding! Made just a couple of minor changes: Upped salt to 1.5tsp (I had a pretty big cauliflower, so it was just a tad bland), added 1 tsp garlic powder and 2T nooch. Also, we don’t have a high powered blender, so when I added the first round of broccoli, I simmered about 7 minutes or so, until it was soft enough for my immersion blender. This will definitely go in regular rotation!

  4. Wow! I have tried everything to make my lactose free hubby enjoy a paleo soup. 2 bowls down and he’s loving it. I owe you :) thanks again, From CT!

      • even better the 2nd day! we will be fighting for the last bowl. I love your website and plan to try a mushroom soup next! I haven’t had a chance to search here yet, but I would also like to make a g-free bread, hard to find ones in the store that satisfy.

  5. this looks great! My husband is not supposed to have dairy and is a fan of “cream” soups, so can’t wait to try and throw him off. Was even thinking I could add some organic turkey bacon bits at the end. :)

  6. I love this recipe. I have a fatty liver and is hard finding delicious meals to make, and this was a big hit in my house, even with my 10 year old. The only problem I have is that I cannot find the nutritional information anywhere….

  7. Just made this recipe and tasted it and it was very bland. This could, however, be due to the fact that I left my cauliflower simmering while I hung out the washing and came back to it having overflowed. Readded some almond milk to thin it down at the end.

    Anyway, after I tasted it I added 2 organic stock cubes and more pepper and it is now tasting much more delicious! I think some flavour may have been lost in the overflow.

  8. If you blend the broccoli and cauliflower with the almond milk before cooking and then wait 20 minutes the cruciferous veggies will retain their potent cancer fighting properties much better. Same actually goes for the onions but not browning them will alter the flavor. Just let them rest a few minutes after chopping before adding to heat.

  9. This sounds really good…will definitely try it & happy to see it’s soy-free as well.
    But, can it really be called nut-free since it uses almond milk?
