Creamy Broccoli Soup

6 cups broccoli florets
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 cups cold nondairy milk, plus more as needed
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium tamari (to taste)
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning
Dash cayenne pepper
Freshly ground black pepper

Place broccoli in a steamer and steam over medium-low heat about 7 minutes or until crisp tender.

Put the steamed broccoli, garlic, nondairy milk, tamari, salt, seasoning, cayenne, and black pepper into a blender and process on low, until smooth, making sure to leave air space at top of blender to allow for steam to escape.

If the soup is too thick, add more nondairy milk, 2 tablespoons at a time, to achieve the desired consistency, pulsing or blending briefly after each addition.

Put the soup into a medium-sized soup pot, and cook over medium-low heat until heated through, stirring often. Serve immediately in deep soup bowls with whole grain crackers or crusty bread on the side.
