- This soup has only two main ingredients, onion, and broccoli. Buy the best ingredients that you can find. If you start with fresh and delicious ingredients you will end with a bowl of very, very tasty broccoli soup.
- When sauteing the onion in olive oil use low to medium heat. You just want the onion to be translucent, not browned or burned.
- You can saute the onion in large chunks, there is no need to cut it in small pieces. You will be blending the onion and soup together.
- You can add garlic and shallots or use instead of the onion. Anyway, this simple vegan soup will be delicious.
- When adding the vegetable broth or water, start by adding less of what you think you need. It is easier to thin out a soup than to fix a very liquidy one.
- You can blend this in a Vitamix or other high-speed blender or with an immersion blender . Both work as magic.
- To finish the soup, first, check for seasoning and adjust if necessary. Then finish it with croutons, with a grilled cheese cut into small pieces, with nuts or seeds or some raw broccoli florets.
