Vegan Broccoli Soup


  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • ½ c. chopped celery
  • 1 c. chopped carrots
  • 1 lb. broccoli, chopped
  • 1 small potato, diced (1 cup)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 c. vegetable broth
  • 3 c. cubed bread, for croutons
  • ½ c. raw cashews
  • 1½ tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp. sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 2 small baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots, broccoli stems, salt, and pepper and sauté until softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and garlic and stir, then add the broth and simmer for 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Let cool slightly.
  • Place broccoli florets in a steamer basket, and set over a pot with 1-inch of water. Bring the water to a simmer, cover, and let steam 5 minutes, until the broccoli is tender.
  • Meanwhile, place the reserved broccoli florets and the bread cubes on the baking sheets.
  • Toss with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and roast until the bread is crispy and the broccoli is tender and browned around the edges, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the soup to the blender and add the cashews, apple cider vinegar, and mustard, and blend until creamy. Work in batches, if necessary. Add the steamed broccoli florets, dill, and lemon juice, and pulse until the broccoli is incorporated but still chunky. The soup should be thick; if it’s too thick, add 1/2 cup water to thin to your desired consistency.
  • Season to taste and serve the soup in bowls with the roasted broccoli and croutons on top. Enjoy!
