Chef: Laura Theodore, Jazzy Vegetarian
Makes: 3-4 Servings
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Total Time: 25 min
6 c broccoli florets
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 c cold nondairy milk, plus more as needed
1 t regular or reduced-sodium tamari (to taste)
1 t all-purpose seasoning
1/4 t sea salt
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Fit a steamer basket into a medium sauce pan with a tight-fitting lid. Add 2 inches of cold water, then add the broccoli. Cover and bring to a boil. Steam the broccoli until crisp-tender, about 7 minutes.
Put the steamed broccoli, garlic, nondairy milk, tamari, all-purpose seasoning, salt, and cayenne pepper in a blender and process on low until smooth, making sure to leave air space at top of blender to allow steam to escape. If the soup is too thick, add more nondairy milk, 2 tablespoons at a time, to achieve the desired consistency, pulsing or blending briefly after each addition.
Put the soup in a medium soup pot and cook over medium-low heat, until heated through, stirring often. Season with pepper. If soup is too thick, add more nondairy milk.
Serve immediately in deep soup bowls with whole-grain crackers or crusty bread on the side
