Creamy broccoli soup : vegan
Are we carnivore or vegetarian by nature?…. ‘Drink soy milk, no, soy is bad for you. So is Tofu. Yogurt and peanuts are evil’…>.<….I read so many books on this and still haven’t got the answer. It’s like a religion – you question and debate all day long but no one knows the truth….So what the heck, I’m going to eat whatever that taste good to me. I have a group of friends, one of them is a vegan, one of them is a vegetarian, one of them only eats chicken, and their boyfriends and husbands are meat eaters. So when they want to come over for dinner……I say….’Aghhhhh….Let’s go out!’
I eat meat but I do enjoy good vegetarian/vegan dishes. I love sweetness of coconut oil based dish and my tummy feels good after eating them. Believe it or not, my favorite place to go out is either raw food restaurant (Alchemy arts center) or vegan restaurant (Adama vegan) and I eat gluten free toasts. HaHa 🙂 Enjoy this creamy, vegan, gluten free deliciousness! Now, if you would excuse me, I’m going to make my way back to the freezer and get a scoop of full-fat dulce de leche ice cream.
1 bunch of broccoli (washed and chopped)
Half of onion chopped
2 small cloves garlic (1 big clove)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 cup hot low sodium vegetable broth
1 cup coconut milk beverage (not the one in a can that you use for curry. You can use rice milk or almond milk if you like. But I prefer coconut milk for this recipe.)
1 cup hot water
2 Tablespoon coconut oil
2 Tablespoon garbanzo bean flour
Salt & pepper
5. In the same pot, melt coconut oil and add garbanzo bean flour to make ‘Roux’. Keep stirring till it thickens.
6. Add broccoli mixture back into the pot. Stir to combine.
7. Add hot vegetable stock, water, coconut milk and simmer.
