Vegan Creamy Broccoli Soup

This is a very low sodium soup. You can either increase the sodium to a full teaspoon if you can tolerate a little salt or use toppings to increase the flavor. I like this soup topped with homemade croutons, some shredded vegan cheese and a dollop of vegan sour cream.

This soup has higher potassium because of the potatoes, broccoli and spinach. Leave out the spinach and only use 1 cup of potatoes to create a lower potassium soup.
