March has come in like a lion with windy, cold weather. The one thing good about it is making hot soup. I haven’t made nearly enough soup this year and I miss it. I usually make at least 6 or 7 kinds throughout the winter. I threw this together with some leftover steamed broccoli and was able to use the rest of my nutritional yeast which I will be buying more of now that I’ve figured out some good uses.
I started by softening some garlic, onion and baby carrots in olive oil
I added equal parts water and unsweetened almond milk
The steamed broccoli was added in after the other veggies had cooked. I used some lemon pepper and a small dash of nutmeg. Salt is optional, I added just a tiny bit.
The nutritional yeast adds a “cheesy” flavor without the dairy. It’s not a substitute for real cheese, but definitely adds a tangy sharpness
I blended some whole oats in the blender until they were fine and added in as a thickener. A good way to avoid flour.
I scooped out the broccoli and blended well before adding back into the pot. You can leave the pieces whole if you prefer a chunkier soup.
After it was cooked I added the juice of a half of lemon for some tartness
What is your favorite winter soup?
