Cauliflower Soup

As a mother of a toddler, I am always looking for new ways to add  vegetables to our meals. I have found that my family loves soup.  Not only do we eat soup as a meal, but in the winter months we have soup almost every night as an appetizer to warm us up.  Surprisingly this cauliflower soup did not have a strong cauliflower taste.  It was smooth, thick and creamy.  My toddler has a soup bowl with a straw and was able to suck it up without a problem.  It was just the right consistency that I was even able to use it as sauce for my pasta.  So delicious.  Shh don't tell my family it's healthy!  


2 Tbs olive oil
1 onion (diced)
1 clove garlic (diced)
1 head of cauliflower (chopped)
2 cans chicken stock
4 Tbs grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper

In a sauce pan, heat the oil.  Add the diced onion and diced garlic. 
Saute until soft but not browned. Add the  chopped cauliflower
and the chicken broth.  Cover and let cook until the cauliflower
is soft. About 10 to 15 minutes.  Add the Parmesan cheese.
Remove from heat.  Pour into blender and puree. Add salt and 
pepper to taste.

I cook by sight.  My recipes are what I did.  I truly believe every family is different. Everyone's palette is different so please use recipes for the basic ideas and tweek to meet the needs of your family.  You may want to try adding some celery or a carrot.
