Chipotle Broccoli Quinoa Soup

This tastes like regular broccoli cheese soup with a kick of chipotle but it’s really healthy, easy to make and dairy-free! The creamy hummus and the nutritional yeast give it a cheezy taste and texture. It only takes about 30 minutes to make. My husband LOVES this soup and scarfed down two bowls for dinner tonight.

I used a batch of Chipotle Hummus to flavor this soup per the recipe from Melomeals: Vegan For $3.33 A Day.

Here’s her recipe for the soup:

* Water/broth for sautéing
* 1 onion, diced
* 1/2 red pepper, chopped finely
* 6 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 t dried basil
* Several grates fresh nutmeg
* 1/2 t chipotle powder
* 16 oz frozen broccoli florets (or 1 pound fresh)
* 2 cups of  chipotle hummus
* 4 c water/stock
* Bouillon cube if using water
* 1/2 cup quinoa
* 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
* Salt/pepper to taste
* 1 T umeboshi vinegar (optional, but VERY good)

– Sauté the onion, pepper, garlic, basil, nutmeg and chipotle powder until the onion is soft.

– Add the broccoli, hummus and stock. Bring to a boil for several minutes.

– Turn heat down to low and add the quinoa. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

– Turn off heat and stir in the nutritional yeast and umeboshi vinegar then season with salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper.
