Hearty Broccoli Soup

My daughter loves this soup so much that she had four bowls full! That sure is a lot for a 10 1/2 month old. This soup goes well with both the sweet rolls (previously posted) and the upcoming fresh baked 'Peasant Bread'. This recipe is adapted from Grandma Kathy... thanks Grandma. Our whole family loves this, we hope you will too.


1 bunch of broccoli, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
2 potatoes, chopped
8 oz of Earth Balance or other vegan butter substitute
1/2 cup flour
2 cups soy milk at room temperature
1 vegetable bouillon cube
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Steam broccoli over two cups of water. In a large soup pot melt Earth Balance, add onion, celery and carrots; saute for 5 minutes. Add flour, stirring quickly. Cook for another 2 minutes. Slowly add the liquid from the broccoli, stirring constantly. Add broccoli and remaining ingredients. Mix well and cook over low heat for 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Stir often to prevent scorching.
