AUGUST RECIPE OF THE MONTH
Ian’s Mushroom Broccoli Faux Cream Soup
Ingredients 1/2 cup raw cashews 1 large clove of garlic (more if you like garlic) 1/3 onion diced 1/4 cup olive oil 1 Tbsp organic Italian seasoning 2 heads organic broccoli 4-6 sliced cremini mushroomsMethod Grind cashews into powder. (I use a Mr Coffee grinder) This will grind down into 1/4 cup cashew flour In a medium sauce pan, heat the oil, and add the onion, garlic, Italian seasoning. Cook for a few minutes. Add the cashew powder. Heat the roux carefully so as not to burn the nut powder. Add 3 cups water and stir until mixed well. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer. Add two heads of segmented organic broccoli. (Chop it like you mean it, into smallish pieces.) Do not be afraid to use the stems, by peeling and then slicing them thin. Add fresh sliced mushrooms. Let simmer until broccoli is tender. Salt and pepper to taste and serve. Enjoy!
