Before I had kids, I loved using Silk Original Vanilla soy beverage in my coffee and cereal instead of milk. But since it was slightly sweetened, it wasn’t the best choice for cooking savoury dishes and keeping two different products in the refrigerator just didn’t make sense to me. Silk beverages have expanded their line a lot since then and so when I was given the opportunity to create some tasty recipes using Silk products and vegetables that flower, I couldn’t wait to see what I could whip up. The low calories, calcium and essential vitamins in Silk products are such a great addition to a healthy lifestyle and I was already beaming at the prospect of adding them to my diet again.
As a huge fan of the cruciferous vegetables, I decided that I wanted to create a recipe featuring broccoli. There’s nothing I love more than a delicious bowl of soup and cream soups are my absolute favourite. But they do tend to be heavy on fat and calories, and what if you’re vegan, lactose intolerant or allergic to dairy? This delicious Cream of Broccoli soup is the perfect solution! Using Silk Original Almond beverage and fresh vegetables, it has a rich, creamy flavour as well as calcium and Vitamin D for extra nutrition.
