Vegan Globetrotter Tips and Suggestions

Serving Suggestion
  • This cheesy broccoli soup can be enjoyed as is, or topped with croutons, chopped green onions, or a dollop of vegan sour cream.
Recipe Notes
  • For a creamier soup, you may want to puree some or all of the broccoli before adding it to the pot. Simply place the cooked broccoli in a blender and blend until desired consistency is achieved.
  • To make this soup gluten-free, simply use gluten-free flour in the roux and gluten-free croutons for topping.
Storing Tips
  • Leftover soup can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave or on the stovetop until warmed through. This soup can also be frozen for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating.
  • Heartier soup: add 1-2 cups of cooked diced potatoes along with the broccoli.
  • Spicier soup: add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the cheese sauce.
  • Swap out the broccoli for another sturdy green veggie like kale or chard. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
