Cosy broccoli Soup with Feta Cheese Creme

Cosy up with a heart warming Soup!

This is the kind of healthy soup you'd like to share under a cosy blanket or on a tray in the garden. Lots of flavors to inspire the heart and belly. The broccoli soup is accompanied by nuts, herbs and a feta creme, that adds crunch, freshness and delicious creaminess. Its very quickly made, so lots of taste for not so much work. Can it get better?

Vegan alternative:
If you like to make it vegan, swop the feta creme for Cashew butter
with a bit of lemon and sea salt to taste.
