Vegan Creamy Broccoli Cauliflower Soup

An easy, dairy-free lunch option

This full-flavoured soup uses potatoes and sourdough bread for creaminess without adding dairy. If desired, top with homemade sourdough croutons or finely chopped raw broccoli and cauliflower.

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup (½-inch) cubes sourdough bread
1 medium Yukon gold potato, unpeeled, cut into (½-inch) cubes
½ yellow onion, chopped
6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (We recommend 365 Everyday Value Organic Low-Sodium Vegetable Broth)
2 cups broccoli florets, chopped
2 cups cauliflower florets, chopped
¾ teaspoon fine sea salt

METHOD

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add bread, potato and onion and cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add broth, broccoli, cauliflower and salt, bring to a boil, cover and simmer until very tender, about 30 minutes. Carefully purée with an immersion blender, or by working in batches with a traditional blender.

Enjoy!
