January is a month for hearty, satisfying soups. Just like this vegan cheesy cream of broccoli soup. Because I am keeping everything on the healthier side this month, this soup is no exception. It is a lighter version of classic cream of broccoli cheese soup without the dairy. If you love creamy soups, I bet this will be your go-to gluten-free cream of broccoli soup recipe. This recipe includes most of the ingredients found in traditional broccoli cheddar soup, but I added grated carrots giving the soup a little more texture and flavour. For the creaminess, I used cashews leaving the soup silky, creamy and thick without having to add cream.
We all know that vanilla and chocolate are a match made in sugary goodness heaven. It really is pretty hard to beat that classic combination. And so these Easy Chocolate Chip Cupcakes are sure to be a total winner. They’re made from my favourite vanilla cupcake recipe – which is honestly the easiest yummiest thing ever, with a sprinkling of chocolate chips through the mixture, topped with a basic vanilla buttercream… and more chocolate chips (of course).
