healthy cream of broccoli soup

In an effort to keep up with my January goals and eat more plants I have been making a lot of soup.  I love a meal that is comforting and healthy and can be made in one pot.

This creamy broccoli soup is vegan and super healthy.  I ate it with a grilled cheese, apple, and arugula sandwich.  SO good! It was the perfect lunch.

Healthy Cream of Broccoli Soup
-3 cups broccoli florets, roughly chopped
-2 cups cauliflower florets, roughly chopped
-1 cup chopped potato...any kind if fine, I used golden yukon potatoes
-1 medium onion, diced
-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
-1/2 cup hazelnuts
-5 cups vegetable broth
-salt, pepper, and olive oil

Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat.  Add the onions, broccoli, cauliflower, and potatoes and saute for about five minutes.  Add the crushed garlic to the pan and continue to cook for another minute or two.

Finally, toss in the hazelnuts and pour in the vegetable broth.  Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes...until the vegetables are soft.

Blend the soup to your liking and season with salt and pepper.   So simple and delicious.
