Method:

  • Finely dice peeled onion, garlic and celery.
  • Heat up vegan butter in a deep pan or dutch oven, and sauté onions and celery until fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Add flour, stir for a minute, then whisk in vegetable broth. Bring soup to a boil, stirring continuously.
  • Add broccoli but reserve about 1 cup of florets to add later.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes, then blend soup until smooth.
  • Add remaining broccoli florets to the blended soup, and simmer for a few more minutes until broccoli florets are tender or heated through.
  • If needed add some more water or broth to thin out the soup.
  • Stir in pesto at the end, and if using vegan cheese shreds or parmesan.
  • Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  • In the meantime, pan fry gnocchi in a non stick pan (optional: use a drizzle of olive oil) until crispy.
  • Top broccoli soup with crispy gnocchi, fresh herbs, and enjoy!

Tip: Another great addition or topping would be my homemade pesto tortellini (see reel for method and recipe!)
