Creamy Broccoli Soup in Minutes

Raw soups can just as satisfying as cooked soups – it’s all about the flavor.  If you are new to raw food or even not – it doesn’t get any easier than soup.  Since most soups are made in the blender, they are simple to make and there is little cleanup.  Serve your soup with some gluten-free crackers or bread and a salad to complete your meal.

This creamy broccoli soup is wonderful for a chilly day or evening.  Broccoli is a potent anticancer food and one of my favorite cruciferous vegetables.  This soup is quick and easy to prepare and great for weight loss. 

Broccoli Soup:

  • 2 cups broccoli florets (washed)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup Mum’s Original Delores hemp seeds or cashews (soaked)
  • 1 avocado – pitted and flesh scooped out
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 TB. cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 TB. fresh lime juice
  • sweetener of choice ( 1 TB. maple syrup, raw honey) – a few drops of liquid stevia or 4 dates (pitted)
  • 1 – 2 TB. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp. Mum’s Original rock salt or sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • Herbamare seasoning (optional) – to taste (I used 1 tsp.)
  • cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 cup steamed broccoli florets (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender (I use a Vitamix) and blend until smooth.  Stop mid way and taste for additional seasoning to your own liking (I had to add some extra salt at end – not in video).  Depending on how raw you are, blend anywhere from 3 – 5 minutes for a warm to piping hot soup.  Pour into serving bowl, top with steamed broccoli, additional hemp seeds and extra nutritional yeast.  It is delicious and FAST!! Any leftovers can be used within a few days for lunch or dinner.  Serves 2.

Cauliflower soup:

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets (washed)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup Mum’s Original Delores hemp seeds or cashews (soaked)
  • 1 avocado – pitted and flesh scooped out
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch knob of fresh ginger root
  • 2 TB. cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 TB. fresh lemon juice
  • sweetener of choice ( 1 TB. maple syrup, raw honey) – a few drops of liquid stevia or 4 dates (pitted)
  • 2 TB. nutritional yeast
  • 1 – 2  tsp. Mum’s Original rock salt or sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • Herbamare seasoning (optional) – to taste (I used 1 tsp.)
  • cayenne pepper (optional) but recommend! – to taste
  • 1 cup steamed cauliflower florets (optional)
  • 1 red bell pepper – chopped small for garnishing on top (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender (I use a Vitamix) and blend until smooth.  Stop mid way and taste for additional seasoning to your own liking.  Depending on how raw you are, blend anywhere from 3 – 5 minutes for a warm to piping hot soup.  Pour into serving bowl, top with steamed cauliflower, chopped red pepper, additional hemp seeds and extra nutritional yeast.  It is delicious and FAST!! Any leftovers can be used within a few days for lunch or dinner.  Serves 2.  (Sorry, no picture for cauliflower soup!)

  1. Thanks! This is perfect and I will try both the broccoli and the cauliflower this week. I am trying to come up a handful of basic recipes that I like for my foundation. I want to have go to recipes for juices, smoothies, salad dressings and soups. The green juice with celery, cue, lemon, apple as the base, smoothies with spinach, banana, berries and hemp, and now these two soups will be perfect as go to soups. I am working on dressings as I do not care for vinegar based dressings, but I do love lemon. I absolutely loved your husbands comment about sharing “Kibby Love” – very charming!

    • Thanks, Marcy! I have another soup I’m posting on Friday that I AM SURE you will love – I do! I can provide you with more recipes as we go along with these videos, so don’t hesitate to speak up and request something. Scott says “thanks!” :)
