I wasn’t going to feature this recipe just yet as I whipped it up just over the weekend, but it came out SO GOOD. Spring is coming, but I love a good soup and sandwich any day of the week and I was just so taken by how it came out! Broccoli Cheddar Soup is one of those concepts that everyone gravitates towards. It’s a staple, but it’s typically laden with heavy cream and cheese, which negates the purpose of a good soup!
A good soup can pack tons of flavor, but doesn’t need all that added salt, heavy cream, and cheese. This applies to all the standard soups. Sometimes less is just, ..more.
As a soup enthusiasts I was thinking of which soup to do next and the thought of a basic broccoli cheddar bored me. I personally don’t like a chunky soup, because I typically pair mine with toast. So I prefer the texture I experience to be with the toast, not in my soup lol.
That being said, I knew I had to do a Cream of Broccoli. Not only because the recipes online were minimal, but because it just makes for a more effortless soup that has way more aesthetic appeal than browned chunky broccoli soup.
What’s great about this soup, is simply everything! It’s quick, cheap, easy, has minimal steps, but packs maximum flavor, has protein from the cashews making it more filling, looks gorgeous, creamy, dreamy, perf for any season, could turn into a gazpacho, great for entertaining, and just my new favorite soups!
