Soup Recipe

Recipe time!
I'm a tad overdue for some tasty dishes.
This one I sort of came up with on my own...
I had a head of cauliflower and wanted something
warm, earthy, and to just fill my tummy up with
this past cold & wet weekend.
I'm sure you could doctor it up with cream,
or butter, milk, any of the fats...
I kept it natural and simple.
It fills me up on a small bowl,
I can barely eat the rest of my meal!!

Cauliflower & Mushroom Soup
1 head of Cauliflower
1 bag of mixed fancy mushrooms{shitake, cremini, bellas}
 (I used frozen, you can use fresh)
1 carton of chicken broth (or vegetable)
1 large onion
3 garlic cloves
Good quality extra virgin olive oil
Parmesan cheese

In a large pot, heat EVOO on medium heat
I chopped the onion & sauteed it in the dutch oven until tender.
Add chopped garlic cloves.
Cut cauliflower into large chunks and add to pan.
Pour broth over
Let it simmer on medium-low 45 (+/-)minutes until soft
Using an immersion blender, puree all the veggies until smooth
Add sea salt/pepper to taste
I added a little Parm cheese for a flavor boost.

It was earthy and creamy...
A very thick soup!
You can add more liquid if you'd like,
I preferred it this way.
Eat some of this before your meal,
and you'll be full before you know it!
A little extra dose of vitamins from the veggies.
I'd like to add carrots & celery too.
I'm noticing you can add just about any vegetable,
chicken broth, and use the immersion blender and it's
pretty darn tasty!
