Oven Roasted Broccoli Soup | Roasted Broccoli Soup Recipe | Vegan Broccoli Soup

Roasted Broccoli Soup Recipe
Oven Roasted Broccoli Soup / Vegan Broccoli Soup Recipe. I wanted to try Broccoli Soup since long time but most of the recipe uses either milk or cream. I do not like milk or cream based soups and V too. So bit hesitated to try soup with milk. Earlier this month saw this Roasted Broccoli Soup on Foodgawker site and the recipe does not require any milk or cream and also it is simple and healthy. Immediately after making Homemade Vegetable Stock, I tried this soup and loved it to the core. Roasted broccoli flavor was too good and without milk and cream the soup got nice creamy texture due to the addition of potato. I added 1/2 of a medium potato and the result was awesome. I also tried Carrot Soup the similar way(recipe coming soon) Here I made it Vegan using olive oil for sauteing but you can also use butter. Now off to the recipe...
