10 Spice Soup With Cashew Cream


Urban Hippie 10 Spice Soup with cashew cream

We eat a lot of vegetables in our home on a regular basis. In fact fruits and vegetables are probably 70% of our plates on most days.  The other week, I went way for  right after my husband bought a bunch of delicious groceries. Since I wasn't at home, that week turned into burrito week (all week long) because well, they're delicious.  So when I returned, I got to have fun with all of these veggies that were still there waiting for me.

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews, soaked
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 sweet or yellow onion, diced

  1. In a blender, combine the soaked and drained cashews with 1 cup of the vegetable broth and blend on the highest speed until smooth. Set aside.
