Broccoli Cheddar Soup


This is one of my top three favourite soups. It's classic! How can you not love Broccoli Cheddar soup!? This vegan version is simple to make and will surely please the whole fam.

I suggest pairing the soup with your fav GYR Panino (The Pretty Pear, Mel’s Fav) and you'll have the perfect lunch! This soup keeps well in the fridge for 4-5 days ,so it's a great “make it ahead of time” option for prepping lunches! You’ll love this soup! It’s

  • Cheesy

  • Comforting

  • Nutritious

  • Creamy

  • Packed with vegetables

At Grow Your Roots (the restaurant) when making this soup, we always used to use the Earth Island Cheddar slices (half a package) chopped up. This vegan cheese is one of the best in my opinion. Best of all, it’s available at most Canadian grocery stores!

I’ve also made this recipe with Vio Life (also a grocery store vegan cheese) shredded cheddar cheese and it was delicious. I think any meltable vegan cheddar would work well in this soup.

To make this soup creamy without the cream, you'll remove roughly half of the soup after it's cooked, blend it in the blender and then pour it back into the pot. I don't recommend using an immersion blender for this step because the blender really gets it nice and creamy. Be sure to blend it really well so it's completely smooth before pouring back into the pot with the rest of the soup!
