Creamy No Dairy Broccoli Soup

This soup sort of happened by accident. When I was making a Broccoli Orange Salad one day, I only wanted to use the florets. I cut up all the stems on the fresh broccoli bunch and put them in a baggie in the refrigerator.

Well, I could cut them up very fine and put them in with the salad, which is exactly what I did...

Vegan White Bean Soup

Along with Split Pea Soup, White Bean Soup is one of the standard recipes I make when I have company for dinner. Just because we live in Florida doesn't mean we forego the goodness of soups. Besides, sometimes when the weather is hot, a light meal sits better than something heavy anyway, and a great soup and salad fills that bill. Sometimes I make cold soups, such as this wonderful Cucumber Soup, but most times I just serve hot soups, no matter....
