Creamy Broccoli & Cheese Soup



2 cups coarsely cut broccoli

1 cup finely diced broccoli

1 1/2 spring water

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup pignolias

1/2 cup macadamia nuts

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1 1/2 cups diced red bell pepper

1/2 lemon, peeled

2 cloves garlic

1/4 teaspoon salt (to start)

black pepper to taste

cayenne to taste



Directions: In a Vita-Mix or blender, combine all the above ingredients accept for the spring water and broccoli. Blend until smooth and then add water and blend again. It is at this point that you add additional salt to taste. You also add black pepper and cayenne to taste at this point. Now add the broccoli and stir with a spoon. You can then add this to a shallow bowl and warm in the dehydrator, or in my case, use a double boiler. A double boiler allows you to warm up raw soups without the soup ever coming in direct contact with the hot metal surface. You basically set a glass measuring cup inside of a soup and beverage warmer. I keep a thermometer in the soup to monitor the temperature to make sure it stays in my raw range.

tails4wagging, thanks for your reply. Braggs is basically a substitute for raw soy sauce or nama shoyu. I decided to omit it from the list of ingredients so as not to confuse anyone. Pignolias are pine nuts.



Ok, this brings me to a very important part of the recipe, substitutions.



For the nuts, you can actually leave out some and add more of others. For example, if you can only get pine nuts and sunflower seeds, then just increase those until you have a total of 1 1/2 cups of nuts/seeds. Another example would be if you only had sunflower seeds, then just use 1 1/2 cups of sunflower seeds. Basically, the amount of nuts/seeds should come to 1 1/2 cups regardless of which nuts/seeds you use.

Sure, I see no reason why not. This particular soup has a cheddar cheese base though. So you would actually have Creamy Asparagus & Cheese Soup if you used asparagus.

I'd like to note that neither Bragg's or Nama Shoyu are raw.

Glad you are going to try it. Just increase the amount of macadamia nuts and sunflower seeds to make up for the lack of pine nuts.

Most of the recipes I make are just for me, so I try to make them in portions that allow me to have 2 servings. This particular recipe should serve 2 people.

Hi SW!



This is another great recipe. I used 1/2 cashews and 1/2 walnuts instead of my out-of-stock macs and it worked just fine. It is delicious!



Thanks for sharing!

Sergeant Nini, I am glad you liked it. As usual, the last time I made it, I got to habanero happy and set it on fire. That is the funny thing about habaneros, they burn fiercly, but I still use them. I do not quite understand the reasoning behind it.
