recipe by: Laura Mierzwa, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Culinary Nutrition Expert
On our Instagram page this week, we shared a yummy soup recipe from local Ottawa author Shirley Plant (check out the gorgeous photo and recipe, here). That soup takes only about 20 minutes to make, is quick and easy, is gluten-free and dairy-free, and uses ingredients that you probably already have on hand!
Seeing that recipe inspired Laura Mierzwa, one of our Registered Holistic Nutritionists, to share her personal favourite recipe for cream of broccoli soup. It's thicker and creamier than the one from our Instagram page, but is just as easy to make. The great thing about this soup is that it's creamy while staying dairy-free, is gluten-free, and can be vegan if you choose to use vegetable broth instead of a bone broth.
So without any further ado, warm your heart and boost your immunity with this easy, dairy-free soup that the whole family will enjoy.
6 cups homemade vegetable or bone broth (our bone broth recipe is better than grandma's!)
1 head of broccoli (including stems)
4 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
½ cup parsley, chopped
2 leeks or 1 onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp coconut oil
For the "Cream":
1 cup macadamia nuts or cashews, soaked over night
½ cup water
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp onion powder
Pinch of Himalayan Salt

It’s apple season! Nothing beats hand picked apples. Apples are great on their own or baked into dishes such as this nutritious breakfast cereal.
