Vegan Broccoli Cheddar Soup
It's a common code among healthy cooks everywhere: when you find a veggie that your 'vegetable-shunning' kid, client, customer, husband or wife actually likes-embrace it! Recently my husband confessed his adoration for broccoli in the form of Broccoli Cheddar Soup. So since broccoli is one of the healthiest veggies around, I knew I wanted to wow him with this broccoli-dense cheesy-goodness soup. I even tossed in a jalapeno for a little spice! Broc and Ched. There is something about broccoli and cheddar cheese that goes hand in hand. (And, yes my cheese is vegan) Maybe its the silky melted orange color against the dark green firm tree shaped veggie. Or maybe it's a memory of eating melted cheese-topped broccoli somewhere along the way in childhood. Whatever it is, this classic combo makes for a delicious vegan soup. Mine is a little spicy, a little creamy and a lot delicious.
