Potato, Broccoli, and Bean Soup Easy Vegan Recipe

In a medium pot on the stovetop, add diced onions, minced garlic, and 1/4 cup water.  Water saute over medium-high heat until onions are translucent.  Add more water as necessary.

Add 4 cups water, bouillon cubes, potatoes, and broccoli.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat.  Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

In the meantime, cook Fakin’ Bacon according to package directions.  Chop Fakin’ Bacon into small pieces.  Melt Earth Balance in a small saucepan, add flour and gradually add milk, stirring constantly with a whisk over medium heat until thick.

When the potatoes and broccoli are done simmering, stir Earth Balance/soymilk mixture into pot.  Add the beans and cook uncovered for 10 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Pour into a bowl and add a little Fakin’ Bacon and green onion. This tastes a little like a loaded baked potato soup.  Mmmm–maybe I should make that next!
