No-Cook Broccoli Soup Recipe

No-Cook Broccoli Soup Recipe
Love broccoli soup but don't want to cook? This perfect solution gives you the rich flavor without need of a stove or microwave. You do need a blender like a Blendtec which will be able to warm up the soup a bit through its blending action. Otherwise you'll have a chilled soup, which of course is fine too!

2 cups broccoli
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 Tbsp agave
1/2 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Start by chopping up the broccoli. Put 1 1/2 cups of it into a blender, leaving the rest to serve as the "chunks" in the final soup. Then add in the water, cashews, agave, lemon juice, salt, and pepper into the blender.

As with all blending, start out slow to give the blender a chance to get a handle on things. Then speed it up as you go, until you've got it at a nice whirl. The Blendtec (or whatever one you use) will start to heat the liquid up through its whirling action. Again, if you have a normal blender, it's fine to have this cool.

When you're satisfied with the temperature and blend, pour this into a bowl. Now add in the remaining chunks, as thick or fine as you prefer them. We all like different kinds of soup.


Carb Values
The main thing here, of course, is the broccoli. I eat this as one big serving so for me it's 2 cups of broccoli which is 12g of carbs. That is well within my daily limit for carbs. You can have half of this if you wish, to reduce the carbs.

The cashews will add in carbs - you can substitute macadamia nuts if those are too rich for you right now. A half cup of the cashews would be 22g, while a half cup of macadamia are only 9g. Of course if you're on induction you could leave them out altogether.

Other ideas are to add in bits of ginger - I adore ginger!

What else do you like to add to your broccoli soup? Let me know!
