This was nice straight from "Vegan Vittles", but I've tweaked it to make this creamy, light-green soup truly irresistable. My whole family (little bro included!) enjoys this in fall or winter weather.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium pot, combine the potatoes, water or stock, onion , tarragon and broccoli. (Note: If using frozen broccoli, wait 5-10 minutes before adding it.) Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes, till the vegetables are tender.
  2. Combine the milk, almond butter, tahini, mustard and stir together well. Set aside.
  3. Transfer the vegetables, in batches, to a food processor and blend each batch with some of the milk mixture. Blend about 20-30 seconds, until smooth but still just chunky enough to be thick.
  4. Return the soup to the pot. Pour that last 1/2 cup of liquid into the food processor to rinse it out into the pot. Stir in the salt and white pepper, to taste.
  5. Reheat over medium-low, for five minutes or so. Serve with sandwiches, baked potatoes, or rolls with almond butter or margarine.

Delicious! This made a really nice change from all the spicy soups my family usually eats. I used regular North American mustard instead of Dijon, since nobody at my place likes it, but we all loved the subtle almond flavor. Thanks!

I left this recipe in DH's capable hand and came home to a ready made dinner. He's too scared to deviate from any recipe as he is not an improvise cook so followed the recipe to the letter. Funnily enough although I adore soups I have to be honest and say that this recipe really wasn't my cup of tea, not in taste or in texture... DH, NOT the soup fan however liked it a lot and polished off all the leftovers, so surpises all round. Please see my rating system: I'm rating this 4 stars because DH liked it so much... I would have to have had to have given it less if I had rated it on my own. However this only goes to show that personal taste is everything and that if the ingredients look good then you should always decide for yourself. I'm always happy to try something new... Thanks!
