If you never went to Panera bread growing up to get a bread bowl filled with broccoli cheddar soup, you missed out. But if you did go, hopped on the trendy vegan train 2 years ago, and are now missing out on your favorite comfort food, then I have the solution for you: Vegan Broccoli Cheddar Soup!
This soup may be vegan, but what it lacks in stomach churning lactose, it makes up in flavor. This creamy soup starts with roasted broccoli and ends with the umami flavors you crave from my Vegan Sweet Potato Cheese. roasted broccoli mixed with the nutty, complex flavors from the vegan cheese results in flavor that, I might even dare to say, is BETTER than Panera. Shocking, I know.
Not only that, but this soup is actually good for you. It’s filled with fiber and healthy fats. It’s even protein packed! Rather than get its luscious creaminess from dairy products, this soup gets its smooth texture from silken tofu. Bland on its own, when blended, tofu adds the perfect thick (thiccc if you will) body to soups, sauces, and smoothies.
Next time you get a wave of nostalgia, grab your nearest hollowed out sourdough, pour some soup in and relive your carb filled dreams.
