Beth’s Vegan Broccoli Soup (COLLAB WITH HOT FOR FOOD!)

– Hey, guys, we are in week four of my new year, new dinner collaboration where I’m bringing you quick and easy weeknight meals starring some of my favorite YouTube channels. This week, I wanted to introduce you to Hot for Food. Lauren and John are the couple behind this beautiful channel, and when I first discovered it, I was blown away by just the amount of incredible recipes that they have on it. Not only is everything beautiful, but everything is also vegan. It wasn’t until I watched several videos that I actually realized that, and that in fact, is the
focus of their channel. They wanna show that a plant-based diet is anything from boring, and they have surely
succeeded on that front. – Hey guys, it’s John and Lauren from Hot for Food, and you guys should definitely come and check out our channel, whether you’re vegan or not, there’s tons of recipes that are gonna blow your mind and change the way that you think about vegan food. I promise you. – Definitely, and we have a recipe for new year, new dinner coming up right after Beth’s, so make sure that you click on over and find out how to make our cream of mushroom soup. Thank you so much for having us, Beth. See you guys soon! – Doesn’t that soup look delicious? This time of year, a warm, comforting soup always hits the spot,
and one of my favorite soups to make is a cream of broccoli soup. When Lauren and I first discussed, oh yeah, let’s do creamy soups that don’t actually use cream, we both thought it was a great idea. It comes together so quickly, and you can make a big batch of it on Sunday night and have it to eat throughout the week. Let me show you how to put it together. In a large soup pot, you’re gonna add two tablespoons of olive oil. Into that you’re gonna add a cup and a half of diced yellow onion, a half a cup of shallots, which does sound like a lot of shallots, but it is a great thing to add, because it will add a beautiful sort of savory sweetness to the soup, which I think is pretty nice. Then three sliced garlic cloves. Go ahead and saute up
all of those vegetables just until they’re nice and tender. You can put the lid on your soup pot, too, just to kind of speed up the process. Then we’re gonna add three cups of broccoli florets,
and then this is where we’re gonna get that silky smooth texture that’s so associated with cream in puree-based soups like this, we’re going to add five
cups of cauliflower florets. Cauliflower as a vegetable, when you cook it and puree it has a really nice silky smooth texture to it. It doesn’t have much flavor. We’re really just using
it for the texture, so go ahead and add five cups of that. The other thing that’s gonna give our soup great smooth, silky texture is a potato, so we’re going to add a cup and a half of diced russet potato. Usually one big sized russet potato will get you about a cup and a half. Finally, we’re gonna add six cups of your favorite vegetable broth. You’re gonna put your lid on your pot, and you’re gonna let that cook for about 15 minutes, just until all those vegetables are fork tender. Then we’re gonna go ahead and puree this soup in batches, just in a blender. You wanna do it in batches so that you don’t end up with a very chunky soup. We want that really smooth, pureed soup. Doing it in batches will help with that. Once your soup is all pureed, you’re gonna pour it back into your cleaned out soup pot, and then we’re gonna add some seasoning. I like to add salt, some
freshly cracked pepper, and then my secret ingredient is half a teaspoon of dried dill. It might sound like a strange thing to add to a soup, but it really does add such a fabulous flavor to it. It makes it kind of fresh and gives it a depth that you wouldn’t otherwise have if you didn’t add a little bit of some time of herb. Dill is really my herb of choice for this kind of soup. You’re just gonna heat that up, and you’ll see you’ll start to have a really beautiful soup on your hands that looks silky and smooth and hardy all at the same time. We’re gonna ladle it out
into a generous soup bowl. I do like to drizzle a little
bit of olive oil on top. That will give this soup a really beautiful silky finish as well. If you’d like, you can also garnish with a little fresh parsley and some freshly cracked pepper. You can serve with a Italian breadstick. There you have it. Dinner is served. I love this soup because it is so delicious and comforting, especially on a cold winter’s night. You’ve got that creamy smooth texture coming from the
cauliflower and the potato, with then that beautiful
flavor of the dill and the fresh parsley. It’s also a really great thing to do to crack off some of that breadstick and pop that in the soup as well, kind of have an instant crouton. I hope you guys give this one a try, and let me know what you think. I also hope that you head on over to Hot for Food, subscribe to their channel, and definitely
try that soup recipe. That looks really fantastic. I know I am definitely gonna try that one. To get you inspired for how delicious vegan cooking can be, I’m gonna leave you with some of their awesome recipes from their channel. I think it will definitely get you inspired about trying
vegan cooking for dinner. All right you guys, I
will see you back here next week, and we are going to tackle the Sunday night family dinner with One Hungry Mama. All right you guys, I’ll see ya then. Bye. (Upbeat music) ♫ More to life than just survival ♫

  18. A tip for those without a blender, or whose blender is cheap like mine. You can do it with a hand blender (one of those tips for the mixers) but it has to be in small batches. At the end if you want it super smooth, pour it through a sifter. Now I hate wasting food, so whatever couldn't pass through I froze it so I can add it to another recipe (potato gratin for example). If you still want to blend it, mind the steam that's accumulating in the jug. I knew that, and since mine doesn't have a tiny hole I had to open it every few seconds. Despite my efforts, the steam managed to push out the lid because my blender is blitzing everything up and down, and not just creating a regular whirlpool of the liquid. Thus, opening it every few seconds didn't help and I made a small mess. That's why I recommend the hand blender for those out there who don't have the best equipment.

  19. I just made this and it taste wonderful. So much better then store bought soups…. it's so fresh and real tasting. <3 Thank you!

  20. I had my doubts (mostly because I don't like cooked broccoli). It's really, really good, especially with a couple of croutons and some smoked farmhouse from Miyokos.

  21. We Made it tonight! It was so delicious and filling ๐Ÿ˜‹ . As a mom the true test was if my 3 year old would eat it? She licked her bowl clean! We will definitely make this again!

  22. Just made this – truly beautiful hearty and warming. I added a little bit of fresh lemon juice at the end. Amazing.

  23. Just made this soup for dinner and I have to say that itโ€™s absolutely amazing! I was really surprised how delicious it is! I only had about 4 cups of veggie broth so I used 2 cups of water. Also, the dried dill adds such an amazing flavor to the soup! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, my family loved it.

  24. I made this a few days it was gorgeous, so much so my 12 year old lad is asking for me to me again
    I am about to make it again for him

  25. Ok, 1st of all, thank you for listing the ingredients below so I don't have to leave this website and go to the internet!
    2nd, "no fuss, no muss. I love how simple you do your recipes. Not a lot of exceptions and needless explanations, you know what you want to say, you simply express it and get right to the point. I call that short and sweet!
    TFS! btw, I will visit your friends channel, thanks for the heads up.

  26. Looks good, but not sure how this is cream of BROCCOLI soup… there's almost twice as much cauliflower than there is broccoli.

  27. Coocked it and it was so yummy๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹I think with this recipe i can make actually any kind of vegie creamy soup, by changing just the brocoli into anything else??
    Also, this amount for 2 people was enough for almost a week๐Ÿ˜…

  28. I have a question. Can I replace the oil with something else? I do not use it, and I don't want it in my body. Thx in advance.
