A creamy vegan twist on a traditional favorite. This Slow Cooker Broccoli “Cheese” Soup is so easy to make and packs so much flavor even the non-vegan broccoli cheese soup lovers will enjoy a warming bowl!
Y’all… I’m on a kick, a slow cooker kick- and I’m loving it! I do the prep in the morning, let it cook all day and then sit down and eat when we want (or can!). It’s perfect. It’s so perfect I’ve decided to add a slow cooker recipe category to my blog and hope to add lots of new recipes there this fall and winter.
I never thought I would see the day where vegan could taste so cheesy. Like seriously. The truth is, I LOVE cheese. But I don’t eat cheese and haven’t for years because me and cheese don’t jive… so when I create foods that are cheesy, and taste like the real deal I get very happy. I thought my taste buds were deceiving me at first, but the leftovers proved to be just as cheesy as when I first had this Broccoli “Cheese” Soup.
Have y’all ever been to TGI Fridays? From what I remember, they have the best broccoli cheese soup. It was so think and creamy and just mmmmm. This soup immediately reminded me of that soup. Now, what in the world makes this so cheesy without actually adding cheese?! So it’s kind of a thing that vegans have figured out… don’t ask me how, but to whoever did, I love you! Vegan cheese is usually a mix of nutritional yeast, cashews, almond milk, and garlic! There are variations, but this is what makes up the base of this soup.
Now, I also have a secret ingredient to make this Broccoli “Cheese” Soup extra hardy and thick…. potato! It was kind of an impulsive decision to add it, I figured potato is almost good in anything, so let’s go for it! Well played mister potato, well played. I have to say, this is probably one of my recipes I am most excited to share with you AND I cannot wait to make it again. . If you try it and love it (especially if you’re not vegan!) don’t forget to tag me and leave a comment below! So without furter ado I present to you (Vegan) Slow Cooker Broccoli “Cheese” Soup…

**NOTE: if you don't have a high speed blender, soak your cashews overnight or boil them for 15 minutes
** If you'll be at work when the soup will be done, feel free to have your slow cooker switch to the keep warm mode (if available)

Wow, this was very good. I made without modification and served it with quinoa. Toddler likes it, and I like that it isn’t super “heavy” like many cream-based soups. Good one, thank you!
Hi Annabelle! So wonderful to hear you (and your toddler) liked it! 🙂 sounds wonderful with quinoa, thanks for the idea. Thank you for taking the time to write a comment, I really appreciate it! ?
