Broccoli Cheddar Soup
This broccoli cheddar soup is so creamy, delicious, and tastes just like the stuff I ate growing up! You can watch me make it in my recipe video here.
4 tablespoons vegan margarine or butter
1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic, ~2 cloves
6 tablespoons brown rice flour
5 cups veggie broth
1/3 cup vegan cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 teaspoon onion powder
Salt to taste
3 cups broccoli, chopped up nice and small
1 cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese (I actually used this marble cheese I made)
-Add margarine and garlic to a pot on medium heat. Melt the margarine and let the garlic fry for a couple minutes.
-Start adding in flour 1 tablespoon at a time and whisking it in to create a roux.
-Slowly start adding in the veggie broth, whisking constantly.
-Add the vegan cream cheese and whisk until it’s incorporated.
-Add in the black pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder, and salt. Whisk them all in.
-Turn the heat to just above medium and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, whisking frequently.
-Add in the broccoli. Let it simmer for another 10-20 minutes, whisking frequently.
-Turn the heat down to medium-low and add your shredded cheese, save a little bit of cheese to put on top.
-Turn heat off and continue mixing until cheese is melted and nicely incorporated.
-Serve with some shredded cheese and enjoy!
