Broccoli Bisque

Ok, so the picture kinda sucks, but this creamy, hearty soup from Vegan Vittles is amazing! It comes together in a flash and is really delicious. The ingredients are super simple (saute onion, garlic, potato, then broccoli then blend in soy milk, seasoning, and almond butter). I added some nutritional yeast and continued to add more steamed broccoli pieces to this one as I enjoyed the leftovers.

This bowl of yum, easily, will become a cool-weather staple around here. I'm a sucker for creamy bisques and, with this one, you don't have to worry about it being fattening as it's the potato that lends the creaminess. It's full of green broccoli goodness and, next time, I think I'll even try adding some cauliflower or carrots....or both!

The Broccoli Bisque looks simple, good and healthy, but the blue cheeze sammich below looks downright dangerous (to my waistline, that is)!

Love the rage quote on your profile, oh, and the broccoli bique looks great. Curious to know if you'd be interested in being part of a testgroup to try 4 new PROBAR flavors. E-mail me at probarfeedback [at] Gmail [dot] com. Thanks

Joanne Stepaniak is really a genius at making creamy dishes without the fat! This soup looks delicious, especially for a cold winter night! Yum yum!

Oh yum! I have been trying to decide what to make from that cookbook and that sounds like a great start! Your add-in ideas sound perfect as well.

You know, I am surprised that soup came out of Vegan Vittles and tastes good - my luck with VV hasn't been so good. I'll have to try it this week.
