How do I prepare vegan broccoli cheddar soup?
First let the cashews soak in hot water for about 10 minutes.
Now sauté the diced onion and garlic in a sufficiently large saucepan. I always add a sip of water. Now add the peeled and diced potatoes and carrots with the vegetable broth to the onions and cook until they are soft.
Use a hand blender or high-performance blender to mix the potatoes and carrots until they are creamy.
Then drain the cashew nuts and mix creamy with 1 ½ cups water, nutritional yeast, miso paste, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, mustard in a high speed blender.
Add the cream to the potatoes and taste again properly.
Now add the broccoli florets and let them cook until they are soft but still dente. It takes about 10-15 minutes.
If the soup is too thick, add a little more vegetable broth. If it is too runny, let it boil a little more. Or add 1-2 tablespoon of tapioca starch. Make sure that there are no lumps.
How can I substitute the cashews?
You cannot eat cashews or have none on hand. Then just take 400 ml coconut milk and 1 tablespoon tapioca starch and you will get a super creamy, cheesy broccoli cheese soup.
You can also use a purchased vegan cream for cooking instead of coconut milk.
