It’s creamy, cheesy, cosy and ready in just 30 minutes! All you need is broccoli and a few other ingredients.

As we enter autumn I’m always ready for all the comforting soups that are packed with flavour, healthy and filling. And this broccoli cheddar soup is my new favourite!

Vegan Broccoli Cheddar Soup Ingredients

What you’ll need for this vegan broccoli cheddar soup:

  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Flour
  • Butter
  • Vegan milk (almond, soya, oat etc)
  • Vegetable Stock
  • Vegan cheddar style cheese
  • Paprika
  • Broccoli
  • Salt and pepper

That’s just 9 ingredients for this soup – most of which you probably have in your pantry or fridge already!

For the vegan cheddar go for a mature one if you can as it will give a stronger flavour. My favourite is the Violife mature cheddar style which you can get in most big supermarkets!

You can use any vegan milk you like, I use unsweetened almond milk, but use your favourite or what you have on hand. The milk adds more richness and creaminess to the soup, without using cream.

Use a nice large head of broccoli, or two small ones. It should make around 4 cups of chopped broccoli, but a little less or more is fine.

The croutons are optional but for me nothing beats crunchy herby croutons dunked in soup.

What you’ll need for sourdough croutons:

  • Sourdough bread
  • Fresh herbs
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Cut the sourdough slices into inch squares and place on a baking sheet. Toss generously in olive oil, salt and pepper.

Place them in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until crispy then toss in finely chopped herbs. You can use any you like – I used tarragon, rosemary and sage.

Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool whilst you make the broccoli soup.

How to make broccoli cheddar soup:

In a large saucepan sautee finely chopped onion until translucent, then add the minced garlic.

To thicken the soup we are going to make a quick roux and add flour and vegan butter.

Add butter and stir until melted, then add the flour and mix until thick.

Now add the milk and vegetable stock and whisk until there are no lumps.

Cut the broccoli into small florets add to the pan and let simmer for a few minutes until the broccoli is tender.

Add the cheese, stir and let melt. Use a handheld blender to blend until chunky (or smooth if you like it smooth).
