This Broccoli “Cheese” Soup is an AIP/Paleo version of the classic. It is thick and creamy without any dairy at all!Jump to Recipe
We are in full-on soup mode, and I couldn’t be happier. Soup and fall just go together, don’t they? 🍂 Luckily for us, soup is an excellent way for us to get a bunch of nutrients in a hurry!
Do you ever miss a really thick broccoli cheese soup? I thought I wouldn’t be able to have it again. You know, because cheese. But then I learned about a magical little ingredient called large flake nutritional yeast. (For those sensitive to yeast, this yeast is inactive.) It tastes like cheese! Well, now a whole new world of possibilities opened up in my recipe development!
To get the creamy cheese effect in this soup, I have blended some vegetables with nutritional yeast. Voilà! You can use a regular blender, but I find it easier and less messy to use an immersion blender.
This soup is quite hearty and really doesn’t need anything with it. In case you need a crunchy something on the side, though, my Cassava Lavosh Crackers are a nice accompaniment.
Happy soup season! Happy fall!
