How many of us go onto Pinterest and just pin up a frickin storm?
You find a hundred amazing looking recipes and think “this looks delicious, but I could never make that myself”
I am one of those people forsure, I love finding recipes, I love buying cookbooks, but actually getting active and cooking is where I struggle.
My most recent obsession is home made soup.
I love thick, creamy soups, and we all know that these are the least healthy of the soup family.
So I decided to go searching for a soup that is healthy but still satisfies the craving of wanting a thicker soup.
And cauliflower soup answered my prayers!
I found this recipe on Pinterest – under a website called yummyhealthyeasy.com
Here was my experience making the soup, and I will write the entire recipe at the bottom of the post!
Ps. don’t mind my pictures, a few are from snapchat as I snapchatted my cauliflower soup journey, and I did not realize I wanted to blog about this soup until I tried it.
So I started out by finding one of my biggest pots and pouring in the extra virgin olive oil. I made sure to spread it around a bit so it didn’t just sit in the middle of the pot.
I diced up the full white onion, and minced the garlic in my garlic press.
I turned the stove to a little less then medium heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes, making sure your stove is not too hot. Everyones appliances are different so heat is dependant on what you think medium heat is without burning.
Second, I put in four cups of vegetable broth and a diced full head of cauliflower. Turn up the stove a tiny bit and cover. Then you just let the soup boil and stir every little bit for about 15-20 minutes!
Once the cauliflower is at a point of being really soft, turn off the heat completely and then leave it soup for about 10 minutes.
SLOWLY pour the soup into your blender or Vitamix, add a pinch of salt, and blend until it is a creamy texture.
AND THAT IS IT. It is that simple!
You can add a bit of parmesan or green onion for some extra flavour. I grated a bit of fresh mozzarella. SO good.
This soup is healthy, filling, and super tasty.
If you make a double batch you can also freeze it and save your soup for the entire winter season!
Again, I apologize for the sketch pictures. But once I tried this soup I had to share it.
Here is the recipe:
1 white onion diced
2 cloves of minced garlic
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 head of cauliflower diced
4 cups of vegetable broth
a pinch of salt (1 tsp)
For serving, grated parm cheese, grated mozzarella, sliced green onion, whatever you desire really.
