Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup

I like eating vegan meals every once in a while. I find them to be a cleansing break from the meat and sweet eating that I do enjoy. For my system, a totally plant-based repast seems to keep everything running smoothly and keep my head clear.

This soup is light, easy to make, and features one of my favorite vegetables: broccoli. I guess you could say that as much as one of our past presidents hated this veggie, I have a passion for it! And it just happens to be chock full of some really popular vitamins and minerals to boot.

So yea! Here is how to do it:
