Winter Soup

During these dark days of winter and cold nights, it is nice to have a quick, simple warming soup.  Cream of Broccoli soup is a vegan version  which tastes great and is easy to make and only requires a soup pot and a blender.  The recipe is as follows: 5 cups of broth 2 medium potatoes, cut into small cubes 1 medium onion, chopped finely 2 heads of broccoli, trimmed and coarsely  chopped  (about 4 1/2 cups) 1 cup of cashews 1 cup of broth dash of salt/pepper/dried basil to taste Take 4 cups of broth in a large pot and bring the potatoes and onion to a simmer, cover and cook  5 minutes. Add the broccoli and basil and simmer again for another 10 to 20 minutes until the potatoes are tender. In the meantime, put 1 cup of cashews in the blender with the final cup of stock. Blend for up to a minute until it is creamy.  Add the cashew cream to the soup pot and mix well and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and puree about half the soup in the blender and then return to the pot and stir well. Serves...
