Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup

This vegan broccoli cheese soup is a variation of Vitamix’s recipe that they have in their recipe book.  Only this recipe contains no milk or cheese, making it a tasty choice for vegans looking to warm up on a cool day.  Broccoli is filled with nutritional goodness too.  It includes vitamin A (mostly beta-carotene), C, folic acid, calcium, and fiber.  Vitamin C and beta-carotene are important antioxidants which have been shown to reduce your chance of cataracts, heart disease, and certain cancers.

This recipe also calls for nutritional yeast which is a deactivated yeast with a cheesy taste.  Nutritional yeast is an excellent source of animal-free vitamin B12 (necessary for nervous system health), folic acid, and a number of other minerals.  And if the nutritional quality of this soup doesn’t grab your attention, the taste will!
