Creamy Broccoli Soup

Who doesn't love a big bowl of cheesy broccoli soup? My family loves it but with all that cream and cheese it isn't very healthy. But with a few minor tweaks this soup can easily be made PINK friendly. It makes for a great quick lunch or great side for dinner. 

Creamy Broccoli Soup (makes 2 servings)
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
1 tsp Bragg's Aminos
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp arrowroot powder
Dash of Salt and Pepper
Dash of Mrs. Dash original or other spice blend
Nutritional yeast, to taste

 Start by steaming the broccoli in the chicken broth and dash of seasoning mix, either Mrs. Dash or whatever your favorite is, until softened.
When the broccoli has softened, put half into your blender (I am using my fake magic bullet but any blender will work)
Blend the broccoli to create a puree
Add the puree back into the pot with the other half of the steamed broccoli and stir to combine
Add in your arrowroot powder, Dijon mustard, Bragg's and garlic, to the almond milk and stir to combine

Add your almond milk mixture to your broccoli and heat until the soup has thickened

When the soup has thickened, you can season with salt and pepper and serve as is or if you want a little bit of a cheesy flavor, add in some nutritional yeast and stir to combine. I used about 2 tbsp. but again this is to taste.
