Vegan Creamy "Cheesy" Broccoli Soup

"Move over Panera, this DAIRY FREE CREAMY “CHEEZY” BROCCOLI SOUP is my new jam. SO EASY and super addicting. Swipe to see step-by-step. Enjoyed this today watching the snow falling outside. Doesn’t get better than hot soup on a snowy day. This soup takes hardly any time to make and is delicious over some pasta, with chicken, bacon or just on its own!"
