High Protein Broccoli Soup (vegan, dairy-free)

vegan protein rich broccoli soup

Creamy, healthy, vegan broccoli cheese soup that contains no milk or cheese?! Yes, it is possible! This protein-packed soup tastes and looks like classic broccoli cheese soup. But with a few minor adjustments, it becomes dairy-free, low-carb, gluten-free, high protein (at 12.7 g per serving!) and high fiber (at 7 g per serving). The secret to this creamy, vegan soup is called chickpea flour! When you heat chickpea flour and water in a pot, stirring constantly, you get a thick and very creamy consistency. So you don’t need any milk additives to thicken the soup. Depending on the ratio of flour to liquid, it will be more or less thick.

Per serving: 241 calories; 24 g protein; 9 g fat; 3 g net carbohydrate; 2 g fiber

High protein low carb soup with beef and shirataki noodles

1. Place all broth ingredients in a large soup pot. Bring the broth to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer the broth for 30 minutes to allow all the spices and flavors to infuse into the broth.

2. While the broth is simmering, place the beef on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 15 minutes. The edges of the beef should be firm to the touch, but the beef should not be frozen through.

3. Remove the beef from the freezer and immediately slice it very thinly with your sharpest knife. Cut across the grain, making sure the slices are no thicker than 1.5 inches. After slicing, keep the beef covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

4. Put the shirataki noodles in a colander and rinse with warm water.

5. after the broth has simmered for 30 minutes, remove the seasonings with a straining ladle. Return the stock pot to the stovetop. Return the broth to low heat and just below boiling point. This means you should see a fair amount of steam, but the broth should not be boiling. The broth needs to be fairly hot to cook the beef.

6. Divide the rinsed noodles among 4 serving bowls and place a few slices of raw beef on top. Arrange the beef in a single layer so that the slices cook evenly in the broth.

7. Ladle the steaming broth and pour it evenly over the beef in each bowl to cook it. The beef should begin to brown immediately.

8. garnish each bowl with scallions and cilantro and squeeze 1 quarter lime into each bowl. Have hot sauce ready, if using.
