      Cream of Broccoli Soup
       
      Ingredients:
      3 medium potatoes, diced
      2 medium celery stalks, sliced
      6 cups broccoli florets
      1/2 onion, diced
      2 cloves of garlic, minced
      2 cups water
      CASHEW CREAM SAUCE (see recipe below)
      1 tablespoon dried basil (I sometimes add more- depending on taste)
      1/4 teaspoon black pepper
      3-4 tablespoons SESAME SEASONING- OPTIONAL (see recipe below)

       

      DIRECTIONS
       
      Place potatoes, celery, broccoli, onion, garlic and water in a large pot.  Bring to a simmer.  Cover and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until potato chunks are tender and pierced with a fork (do not overcook).
      Make CASHEW CREAM SAUCE in a blender.  Pour cream sauce into the pot with the vegetables and stir together (don't forget to add the additional 1 1/2 cups of water...see recipe below).  Add basil and black pepper.  Begin transferring mixture to the blender - 3 cups at a time.  Blend mixture until the vegetables are completely smooth OR leave them slightly chunky, depending on your taste.  Pour blended mixture into a clean pot. Keep warm on low to medium heat, stirring frequently, until steamy.

      Top with diced red peppers or fresh tomatoes.

      CASHEW CREAM SAUCE
      1 cup raw cashew nuts
      2 cups water
      1 teaspoon salt
      2 teaspoons onion powder
      1-2 Tablespoons Chicken-Like Seasoning (or Chicken Paste/Bouillon)
      1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
      2 Tablespoons cornstarch, flour or Clear Jel
      1 1/2 cups more water (to be added after blending)


      Place all ingredients in blender and blend on high for about 2 minutes until smooth (make sure mixture is smooth- not gritty).  Pour into pot with vegetables.  Add the 1 1/2 cups more water to the blender, swish it around, and add to the mixture in the pot.
