Creamy Cauliflower Broccoli Soup

Deliciously thick and creamy!  This recipe is crazy simple, and could be applied to ANY vegetable of your choice. I could definitely see doing a carrot/squash/sweet potato version simply subbing an orange veggie for the broccoli!  Just choose a vegetable that you enjoy. This feels really substantial and thick and filling, meanwhile it is straight up vegetables you are consuming (with a little soymilk for extra protein). I love the taste of broccoli and I love the superfood qualities of broccoli.
You need: 
1 lb broccoli, steamed

1/2 head cauliflower, steamed

1 onion, chopped

4 clove garlic, chopped

1 cup soymilk

Black pepper 
Simply sauté your garlic and onion in a pan with either nonstick spray or water, then throw your steamed veggies and sautéed veggies in a blender along with soymilk and pepper. Blend slightly vented until thick and creamy, serve immediately!
Garnish ideas:

-salt if you desire

-sunflower seeds

– plantain chips
Serve alone, with some whole grain bread, or a salad! Or all three if you eat like me!

Enjoy!

Broccoli Tots

Another take on the tater tot gone cauliflower tot, now gone broccoli tot 🙂 Because everything that can be dipped in ketchup is delicious. Tastes like eating junk food, but really, nutrient packed. Win-win, if you ask me.

You need:

1 large stalk broccoli lightly steamed, removed immediately from heat and run under cold water to begin cooling, then chopped

1 large clove garlic minced

2 green onions chopped

1 yellow bell pepper chopped fine

Black and red pepper to taste

1 laughing cow light cheese wedge

1 egg

 Once your broccoli is well cooled, place it into a towel or cheesecloth. Then wring as much water out as you possibly can; this is the key to these sticking together.  Then place broccoli and all other ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Form into little nugget/tots and place on parchment paper.
Bake at 400F x15 min, flip, and bake and additional 10min. Enjoy!
