What kind of stock to use?
I should really make my own vegetable stock at home but I always forget to save my veggie bits and pieces. If you make your own vegetable broth, amazing. Keep it up!
I usually buy organic bouillon cubes to make soups that way I always have broth on hand ready to go whenever I need it. You can also buy carton vegetable stock to use in homemade soups however I recommend purchasing a good quality, organic one.
The ingredients in Pacific Organic Vegetable Broth, for example, are: water, carrots, onion, celery, tomatoes, leeks, sea salt, mushrooms, garlic, savory leaf and ground bay leaf. Perfect, no added salt or sugar or other ingredients I don’t need. Imagine brand has a similar ingredient list.
Whether you use bouillon cubes or carton vegetable broth, I’d recommend springing for the good stuff. The taste and nutrition is worth it. If you make your own vegetable stock, even better.
Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup
I used to love a can of Campbell’s Cream of Broccoli and Cheddar Soup when I was a kid. That and a grilled cheese sandwich, oh man, that was my fave. Now, I’d rather skip those for something a little healthier with ingredients I feel good about. This vegan cream of broccoli soup is creamy and flavourful and I love that I can enjoy a satisfying serving without it being too calorie-laden.
You can use homemade nut milk to make this or store-bought, whatever you prefer or have on hand. I used Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk and GoBio Organic Vegetable Bouillon Cubes.
