Creamy Cauliflower & Broccoli Soup {oil free}

Wednesday, April 04, 2018

Soup is undoubtedly one of my favourite savoury meals, it's diverse, usually packed with plenty of vegetables and full of flavour but, most importantly, it's always served with bread which definitely makes it a winner in my books. We've been having a lot of rainy days lately so soup has been a regular occurrence in my kitchen and one of the tastiest flavours I've come up with has been this simple, but oh so delicious, cauliflower and broccoli soup. This soup is creamy, packed full of flavour and super simple to whip up, so whether you're in need of a warming hearty meal or you've just got a ton of veggies to use up, this creamy bowl of comfort is the recipe for you.

You Will Need:
- 1 large broccoli
- 1 large cauliflower
- 1 large leek
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 100ml unsweetened almond milk
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- salt and pepper to taste

Start by popping the kettle on and finely chopping your broccoli and cauliflower into small pieces.

Once chopped, add the broccoli and cauliflower to a large pan, cover with boiling water and place on the hob to simmer for around 10 minutes or until totally soft.

As the vegetables boil, roughly chop your leeks and garlic and add to a pan with a splash of water then simmer until softened and translucent.

While the leeks and garlic soften, prepare your vegetable stock by dissolving your stock cube in 500ml of boiling water.

Once softened, add the vegetable stock, almond milk, nutritional yeast and herbs to the pan and allow to simmer for a couple of minutes.

Once the broccoli and cauliflower are cooked, drain and add to your blender along with the leek and stock mixture and blend until smooth.

After blending, transfer the soup back to the pan, season with salt and pepper to taste and heat through.

After heating, you're ready to serve so dish yourself up a big bowl of soup, grab plenty of your favourite bread and get cosy.
