I love MoFo, such an energizing and inspiring experience. I love browsing through all the other posts to see who is doing what. I look forward to starting my day, sipping my cup of coffee, sitting outside on my back deck, hitting “next” on and being delivered a random blog to enjoy. Life is very, very good. So many great blogs, so little time…….what a great dilemma to have.

For MoFo recipe #3 I have a filling, chunky Broccoli Chedah Soup served in a Gluten Free Bread Bowl. What could be better than sitting down to this hearty soup, complete with its own bowl, and best of all, no dishes to wash ūüôā

Broccoli Chedah Soup

Serves 6

  • Ingredients
    6 Tbspns vegan butter
    1  onion, chopped
    1/4 cup gluten free all-purpose flour (GF AP Four Mix)
    2 cups vegan cream (cashew cream)
    3 cups vegan chicken or vegetable broth
    2 bay leaves
    1/4 tspn nutmeg
    salt and freshly ground pepper
    6  bread bowls Рrecipe below
    4 cups broccoli florets
    1 large carrot, diced
    1 cup chedah cheez

Melt the butter in a large  pot over medium heat. Add  onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add flour and cook 3 to 4 minutes, then gradually whisk in cream till smooth. Add the chicken broth, bay leaves and nutmeg, then season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and cook, uncovered, until thickened, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the bread bowls: Using a sharp knife, cut a circle into the top of each loaf, leaving a 1-inch border all around. Remove the bread top, then hollow out the middle with a fork or your fingers, leaving a thick bread shell.

Add the broccoli and carrot to the pot and simmer until tender, about 15 mins. Remove bay leaves. Puree the soup in batches in a blender until slightly smooth, still leaving flecks of carrot and broccoli. Return to the pot.

Add the cheez to the soup and stir over medium heat until melted. Add up to 3/4 cup water if the soup is too thick. Serve in bread bowls.

    2 Tbspns sugar
    1 package dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
    1/2 cup warm (not hot) water
    1/2 cup non dairy milk
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    2 Tbspns ground flax mixed into 4Tbspns water
    20 oz ( 560g )  Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix divided
  • 1/2 oz (15) g psyllium/chia/flax mix (this mix is added to GF flour to make bread products. for the mix, combine equal parts psyllium husk, chia and ground flax.)
  • ¬†2 tsp water

Dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water in a large bowl,  let stand 10 mins until foamy.
Stir in milk, oil, 3/4 tspn salt, and ground flax/water mixture.

Mix GF flour mixture with psyllium /chia/flax mix to form GF bread flour mix.
Add 17 oz (490 g) GF bread flour to yeast mixture, and stir to form a soft dough.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (5 – 10 mins), add enough of the remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands.
Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 Р2 hours or until doubled in size.
Punch dough down.
Divide dough into 6 equal pieces.
Take each piece and form into round shape (like a small grapefruit). using palm of your hand, press down on the top  to slightly flatten.
Transfer the rolls to a parchment lined baking sheet and let rise for another 45 minutes, until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 425¬ļF
Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
Cool on a wire rack before cutting tops off.
