Exquisite Broccoli Bisque
Yield:: 7 cups
 
The enchanting flavor of this creamy soup makes it exquisite company fare, but the simplicity of the ingredients and directions make it perfect for everyday meals as well.
Ingredients
  • 4 cups chopped broccoli (peel stalks well, if using)
  • 2 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 2 teaspoons dried tarragon leaves
  • 2 cups low-fat, nondairy milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Red Star Vegetarian Support Formula nutritional yeast flakes
  • 3 Tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ground white or black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Place the broccoli, water or broth, potatoes, onions, and tarragon in a 4½-quart saucepan or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium, cover the saucepan with a lid, and simmer the vegetables until they are tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.

  2. Combine the milk, nutritional yeast flakes, almond butter, and mustard in a small bowl. Set aside.

  3. Puree the soup in batches. To do this, transfer a small portion of the cooked vegetables, some of the cooking water, and a small amount of the milk mixture to a blender. Process each batch until the mixture is completely smooth. Pour the blended soup into a large mixing bowl. Continue processing the rest of the soup in a similar fashion.

  4. Rinse out the saucepan and return the blended mixture to it. Place the saucepan over medium-low heat, and warm the soup, stirring often, until it is heated through.

  5. Season the soup with the salt and ground pepper, to taste. Serve hot.
