Sweet Potato and Broccoli Cashew Cheesy Soup

You may see a lot of sweet potato recipes on my blog coming up, because I’ve got a ton of sweet potatoes in my house. I usually make this soup with yellow potatoes, but I’m eating a higher amount of sweet potatoes instead of yellow because they are healthier. I can vouch this soup comes out amazing in my vitamix if you don’t own a vitamix might be slightly different.

Ingredients:
1/2 of a sweet potato peeled
1/2 cup cashews soaked and drained
1/2 of a large carrot
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon better than bouillon vegetable base low sodium soup broth
1 medjool date
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup broccoli florets

Directions:
Add cashews, milk, carrot, sweet potato, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, medjool dates and sea salt to the vitamix. Blend well. Add the 1/3 cup water and vegetable broth to a pot and heat to dissolve the broth. Transfer the cheese sauce to the pot and add in the broccoli. Bring to a boil then simmer until the broccoli is cooked. Then carefully add 1/2 of the soup with 1/2 of the broccoli to the vitamix and turn on low and blend. Then transfer back to the pot and it’s ready to be served. Makes 2 servings.

Enjoy!
