Vegan Cheezy Broccoli Soup

1 medium onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
3 stalks celery chopped
2 large carrots chopped (about 2 cups)
1 head broccoli, chopped, stems included
6 cups organic vegetable broth, divided
1 cup chopped sweet potato
1 cup cashews
sea salt to taste

Soak the cashews in one cup of broth for 30 minutes.

Saute’ onions in 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a saucepan. Add remaining five cups of the broth and bring to a boil. Add vegetables and simmer until soft.

Pour cashews and the soaking broth into a Vitamix or other high speed blender. Blend until creamy. Add to cooked vegetable pot and combine.

Use a hand mixer to blend the vegetables until creamy, or blend in 3 or so batches in your high speed blender. Serves 4-6.

Enjoy!
