Ingredients For Creamy Dairy-Free Broccoli Soup
A lot of vegan soups use potatoes, coconut milk or nuts like cashews to achieve that smooth and creamy texture you normally get with dairy.
In this dairy-free soup we used plant-based oat milk and white beans. But don’t worry there’s not beany taste. The beans have the added benefit of adding a great protein boost along with the protein already present in the broccoli. 1 cup of broccoli has 2.6g of protein.
Broccoli - crown and stalk
Oat Milk - to add creaminess
Gluten-Free Flour - to thicken
Celery, Onion (white or red) and Garlic – To add savory depth of flavor
White Beans - helps with smoothness and creaminess
Salt & Pepper to taste
