Ingredients

Cheese Base

  • 1.5 cups diced golden Yukon potatoes
  • 1/2 cup carrots, diced and peeled
  • 3 Garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Broccoli Base

  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1.5 cups diced golden Yukon potatoes
  • 5 cups chopped broccoli heads, plus more for garnish
  • 2.5 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste
  • Pinch or two of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • Alpha pot pie for serving

Instructions

  • In a large saucepan add golden Yukon potatoes and carrots. Fill pot with water until vegetables are just covered. Bring to a boil and cook for 10-12 minutes. Drain carrots and potatoes and add to a blender or Vitamix. Add in garlic cloves, olive oil, white wine vinegar, kosher salt, and black pepper. Blend cheese base mixture for 30-60 seconds or until smooth and creamy. Reserve ½-1/2 cup for soup garnish and set aside the rest.
  • In a large dutch oven heat olive oil one medium heat for 30 seconds. Add in diced onion, celery stalks, garlic and thyme sprigs. Sauté mixture for a few minutes or until the onions are translucent. To the same pot add the remaining potatoes, broccoli heads and sauté for 5 minutes. Add in nutritional yeast, miso paste, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt and stir together. Add vegetable broth and cover pot for 15 minutes.
  • Add in cheese sauce and stir. Transfer the entire mixture with a ladle into large blender or Vitamix. Blend soup for 30-60 seconds or until smoothness level is achieved (I like it a little chunky but mostly smooth). Transfer soup back to Dutch oven and heat on low or serve right away. Top soup bowls with a few tablespoons of remaining cheese sauce, green onions and fresh broccoli.
  • Serve with your favorite Alpha Pot Pie flavor – we love serving this soup with Beefy Cheddar or the Chick’n Veggie options!
