Creamy Cashew Nut and Broccoli Soup

Hi gang! Hope this finds you all well 🙂 I have been meaning to come up with a tasty broccoli soup for a while now but as you understand, life gets so busy at times that creating new meals can often take a back seat!

I cooked this up the other night and it turned out DELICIOUS! It may be Spring here in Melbourne but the warm weather is still not quite here, so why not enjoy the warmth and comfort of hot soups just a little while longer.

Hope you enjoy!

STEP 1 – Gather your ingredients. I used 3 medium heads of broccoli, 2 cups of raw cashews, 3L of stock, 5 cloves of garlic, 2 spring onions, 2 small carrots and 4 celery stalks. Sauté the 2 spring onions (white part only) and the garlic until fragrant.

STEP 2 – Chop up your broccoli (stems included), carrots and celery and place into the pot on cook on low heat for about 10 minutes. Make sure to stir.

STEP 3 – With 2 cups of water, blend your cashews in the blender until creamy. Add this with 3L of stock to your pot of vegetables.
