Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup

If you are looking for a hearty and delicious soup that tastes like comfort food but actually contains healthy ingredients, have I got a soup for you!  The vegan broccoli cheese soup recipe I am sharing with you today contains no dairy or gluten, but tastes just as rich and delicious as traditional broccoli cheese soup!  Not only that, it is easy to make, and contains plenty of fiber thanks to the broccoli!  This is even good made ahead of time and reheated, because it allows the flavors to combine even more.  It is the perfect thing to serve on a rainy Spring day when you need something warming!
