And it is perfect because there are like “million” studies showing all the benefits and superpowers of bróccoli. Did you know that it is full of vitamins A, K and C? And that it is full of fiber? And that its superpowers protect us from cancer, having a bad heart, from weak bones,  etc. I think it is worth eating, don’t you???

tips, tricks & other recipes

In this list, you will find the best tips and tricks on how to prepare the best vegan broccoli soup.

  • 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 (affiliate link) or other high-speed blender or with an immersion blender (affiliate link). 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.

I just found this recipe. Made it and it was delicious. Used the water instead of oil. Added fresh garlic. Also used vegetable broth. No salt but used pepper. I used the purée setting instead.

La verdad es que el brocoli no me gusta y me da mucha rabia por que para la mujer es muy sano. Lo coerto es que lo que me “molesta” es la textura, por lo que no descarto probar esta receta jejeje
