Vegan Healthy Broccoli Soup

This creamy whole30 friendly and vegan delicious broccoli soup is packed with vegetables! Almond milk and almond meal make the soup creamy!

Are you team broccoli? It’s such a love or hate vegetable. Or as my son thinks, it’s ok. I like broccoli in stir-fries and such but not just like that. I remember being in Canana 20 years ago and I was served raw broccoli and cauliflower with a dipping sauce which totally confused me! Have you ever eaten it like that? Is that a thing?

Anyways, I recently had a head of broccoli in my fridge that needed to be used up and thought of ways to incorporate it. Since it’s still not exactly hot, I’m always up for a soup and it seemed like a good option! My son goes to a parent initiative kindergarten which means that us parents have to cook lunch for the children. And the week before they had had broccoli soup with almond slivers for lunch which my son really liked! I had never heard of that before and obviously didn’t eat it either but it sounded really good!

So broccoli soup it was! But a healthy version which was vegan, low carb and whole30 friendly as well. I like using coconut milk instead of regular cream but in this case I didn’t want to use coconut milk. Not everyone likes or tolerates coconut milk and sometimes it’s nice to mix things up a little. So I decided on a mixture of almond milk, almond meal and nutritional yeast. By mixing these ingredients together and adding them towards the end of cooking, it creates a lovely creamy soup!

For extra flavor and texture, I topped the soup with almond slivers, a few chili flakes and chili oil. My blog is not called The SPICY Pineapple for nothing – I really love spicy things! Those toppings are totally optional. But if you decide to omit the spicy kick, I recomend adding the almond slivers at least. A little bit of texture is always nice. Dipping bread into soup is also always a lovely and comforting thing to do and also the case with this soup. So go ahead and dip your favorite bread into the soup!
