Broccoli and “Cheddar” Soup

Broccoli and Cheddar SoupSay cheddar!

Well, vegan cheddar!

Okay, okay… say nutritional yeast!

Yes, I said nutritional yeast!


My kids are the inspiration for this soup, which we definitely enjoyed for dinner tonight!

They love broccoli and cheddar soup, so we decided to find a recipe online and give it a try.

We came across this easy Clean Program recipe.

You can never go wrong with a Clean Program recipe.  Healthy and delicious ingredients with spices combined to make your favorite dishes all while doing your cleanse.

It can’t get any easier than that!  😉

And yes, this soup was definitely delicious which is why I’m sharing it with you!  😛

(Feel free to substitute the nutritional yeast with raw organic cheddar cheese although I believe you’d be extremely happy with the cheesy flavor of nutritional yeast!)


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 leek, green top discarded, white section sliced in ½ inch rounds
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 head of broccoli, discard stem and cut into florets (should equal 4 cups)
  • 3 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • sea salt, to taste
  • optional fresh ground black pepper


  1. In a soup pot, melt the coconut oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Once hot, saute the leeks until they begin to soften, roughly 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.
  4. Add the broccoli and stir to mix everything together. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  5. Reduce heat to low, add the vegetable stock, bay leaf and turmeric.
  6. Cover and let everything simmer for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat, uncover and stir in the additional nutritional yeast.
  8. Season additionally to your tastes with nutritional yeast, salt and pepper if desired.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!
