For the "Cream"
  1. 1 can of cannellini beans with liquid
  2. 1 leek, sliced
  3. 1 tbsp. dried rosemary
  4. 1 cup raw cashews
For the Soup
  1. 1.5 to 2 pounds of (preferably organic) broccoli, chopped (stems removed)
  2. 1 pound of sliced shitake mushrooms
  3. 1 red bell pepper, diced
  4. 2 cans of cannellini beans, with liquid
  5. 1 box of low-sodium vegetable broth
Instructions
  1. Mix the "cream" ingredients in a Vitamix or high-speed blender. Set aside.
  2. Place the broccoli in a large soup pot
  3. Add the shitake mushrooms, red pepper, beans (with liquid), and vegetable broth
  4. Bring to high heat, then simmer for 15 minutes or so, until the broccoli is cooked but not overcooked. Broccoli is perfectly cooked when it turns bright green and has a slight crunch to it.
  5. Add the blended "cream" to the soup pot and stir. You can either serve as is, or blend some of the soup to give it a creamier consistency. If you have a stick blender, it's easiest to blend the soup in place; otherwise, you can put portions of the soup back into the blender to make the soup creamy.
Notes
  1. Kids love it, too!
