Peel your Potatoes if desired, and chop into 1/2" pieces. Finely dice your Onion, and chop the Broccoli into bite-sized pieces as well.
Add the Onion, Italian Seasoning, and Garlic Powder to a large pot with a splash of water, over medium heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the Onion is translucent.
Add in all remaining ingredients, except for the Broccoli, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, then cook for 6-8 minutes, until the potatoes are fork-tender.
Keep the heat on low, and transfer half of the soup mixture into a blender and process until smooth and creamy. Return to the pan, and stir until well-incorporated. (Alternatively, you can also use an immersion blender for this step!) Add any Salt to taste, if necessary (I used around 1/2 tsp).
Add the chopped Broccoli to the pot, and stir well. Once the Broccoli has warmed up with the soup, serve and enjoy.
Puree the soup with a hand blender or in a food processor or blender and enjoy. Toss the broccoli florets in the oil along with the salt and pepper, arrange them in a single layer on a large baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Add the broth and broccoli, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes
Top with roasted cashews, steamed broccoli florets, parsley, white sesame seeds, soy yogurt… . When tho soup is done, add cashew cream and use the immersion blender to puree the soup completely (or you can transfer this mixture into a blender and blend until smooth)

Velveeta into cubes and drop into soup and stir until melted. Let simmer for 20-25 minutes to let the soup thicken up. Add in broccoli and cook over low heat for an additional 20-25 minutes to continue to thicken soup as well as cook and soften the broccoli
