Cauliflower Potato Soup

As strange as that may sound, cauliflower is actually good in soup!
It would not have been my first choice, I admit, and it turned out to be a very good surprise.
I made a big pot of it and it went in no time. It even has a slightly sweet smell to it whenever re-heated the next day -and not because I added any kind of sugar to it, I didn't (though it could be because I typically use coconut oil to sauté my veggies). Regardless, very nice with a bowl of greens and slice of homemade bread.

  • 1 bunch White Onions, or 1 med Onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 3-4 C Veggie Broth
  • 1 head Cauliflower
  • 1 med-lrg Potato
  • salt, pepper
1. Quickly sauté chopped onions and garlic for about 5mn.
2. Pour in veggie broth, chopped cauliflower and potato, and bring to boil. Cover, simmer for 20 mn. or so until tender.

***Quick TIP: Whenever a recipe calls for adding broth mid-stream, I turn on the heat under the kettel while "sauté-ing" (is that allowed?) the first ingredients, then pour the hot water into the pot/pan so as not to suddenly cool everything down.***

Once ready, you can either run half or all of the soup through the blender for a smooth texture, or you can smash it in the pot -which is what I did this time around, because I have this really cool "Smasher" tool and wanted to play with it, and I do generally prefer my soup with texture.

This picture looks a wee bit strange, I know...
still, it did taste really good! Really!
(taken pre-smashing... :p)
