Broccoli Mushroom Bisque
Super simple and so comforting, this creamy bisque is the perfect choice for a chilly winter night. Broccoli, mushrooms and carrots are simmered in a seasoned broth, then blended with cashews for a deliciously rich flavor.
1 head broccoli, cut into florets
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
3 carrots, coarsely chopped
3 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups carrot juice
4 cups water
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup raw cashews
Place all the ingredients except the cashews and pine nuts in a soup pot. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender.
In a food processor or high powered blender, blend two-thirds of the soup liquid and vegetables with the cashews and pine nuts until smooth and creamy. Return to the pot and reheat before serving.
