MONDAY'S MENU {No Cheese Cheezy Broccoli Soup}

This one is a fave because my hubby doesn't do so well with the dairy. Sometimes a good creamy soup just does the soul good! Now add a good creamy soup that is REALLY good for you and you have one heck off a soup!

This stuff is SUPER yummy! Just wait until you find out how we make this without cheese and still have it taste as cheezy as anything! Here you go!


  • 1 1/2 c. Carrots
  • 1 1/2 c. Potatoes
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 1 3/4 tsp. Salt
  • 4 1/2 c. Water
  • 3/4 c Cashews (raw is always healthiest)
  • 6 to 8 c. Fresh Broccoli

Combine Carrots, potatoes, onion and salt in water. Heat until veggies are soft. Add cooked ingredients to a blender with cashews (the secret to making the sauce taste cheezy!). Blend to make cheesy sauce, and return to pot. Continue to warm. Steam broccoli to desired firmness. Stir into cheesy sause and serve!

And then, if your house is anything like mine, enjoy the heck out of faces like this! SERIOUSLY! If he had just tried it, he would have loved it, but alas! Poor kid! :) Hahaha!
