Nourishing Cauliflower Soup

Submitted by: RIMAJO

Introduction

This is a blend of several vegetables, the dominant one being cauliflower. They blend well together, but it is a cauliflower soup in the end. Hearty, healthy fare - great for a crispy cool evening.

Ingredients

    1 med head of cauliflower, chopped
    1/2 head of cabbage (about 8-10 oz), shredded
    1/2 med onion, shredded
    1 med carrot, shredded
    1 med potato (approx 6 oz), peeled & diced
    32 oz Chicken Stock
    1 cup milk (I used whole for this recipe)
    2 T butter
    1/4-1/2 t salt or to taste
    1/4-1/2 t pepper or to taste
    1/8-1/4 t garlic powder
    1/8 t Natures Seasonings, optional
    1/8 t turmeric, optional

Directions

After you have prepped your vegetables, heat your soup pot & add 2 T butter.

Once melted, add your shredded vegetables: cabbage, onion, carrot + potatoes & saute for approximately 5 minutes. Add 1/4 t each of salt & pepper. Stir occasionally.

Add your stock & bring to a simmer. Add in the cauliflower - give a good stir & allow soup to simmer for approximately 30 - 40 minutes, or until tender using a med/low heat.

Once your vegetables are tender, puree 1/2 your veggies in either a food processor or a blender, and return to the pot. IF you prefer a smooth, creamy soup - puree all of your veggies & return to the soup pot.

Add your tumeric, milk and stir. Taste test your soup to see if additional salt or pepper are necessary & adjust accordingly. Heat through.

Your soup is now finished. If you are not worried about calories, or have room in your diet for a few more - you can top your soup with a sprinkle of chedder cheese &/or diced ham or sausage.

A very hearty soup that can be served as a main meal. Enjoy!
