soup-129There’s nothing like luscious comfort food to ward off  the winter blues.  As the light wanes in the west it’s time to get out the soup pot, invite friends over and light the fire. But, if your friends and family are anything like mine, there are some of them with food sensitivities. So, I focus on foods that are gluten and dairy free for the winter months.  It helps to curtail the inevitable sinus, chest and cold irritations that the season brings.  As with all my soup recipes, it’s about using the freshest vegetables, seasonings and a good vegetable stock. See Coming Home To Cook for more winter soup recipes. Enjoy!

Cream of Broccoli  – gluten and dairy free

In a heavy soup pot pour 2 Tbl. of olive oil (or soy margarine). To it, add 1/2 cup chopped white onion, 1 cup chopped celery, 2 diced large floury potatoes, 2 minced garlic cloves, 12 chopped button mushrooms, 4 cups chopped broccoli. Stir and cook for about 15 minutes. Add enough vegetable stock to just cover (about 3 cups)  Cook on medium heat until veg are soft. Add 2 cups of plain soy milk, sea salt and pepper to taste. Cook for another 20 minutes on low heat.  Puree until smooth. Serve topped with chopped coriander (cilantro) and a dollop of non dairy yogurt.
