Oh how we love and adore easy, healthy and scrumptious recipes and this Cauliflower Soup totally fits the bill. Three ingredients (two of which are kitchen staples) and voila, you have yourself a scrumptious soup! I can't take credit for such a fabulous recipe as my good friend Jordan was here visiting and shared this with me. She said she stumbled upon it on Pinterest (follow us HERE) but forgot to pin it.
So we did some detective work and she found THIS pin and she said it was the one she used. So here's our version of the recipe with some adjustments for my dietary restrictions. You know how Nash has dairy sensitivites so no butter for this lady. Oh how I miss my BUTTER! Ok, so you better try this one on for size, it's so unbelievably delish!
PS - Happy Leap Day!
Three Ingredient Cauliflower Soup:
Florets from one head of cauliflower (tough core of cauliflower discarded)
1 quart of water
Bring 1 quart of water to a rolling boil in a medium-sized pot. Add 2 teaspoons of salt to the water. Add the cauliflower florets, and cook until cooked through, about 4 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove florets to a bowl. Reserve cooking water.
Working in batches, fill a blender half-way with cooked cauliflower, add enough cooking water to the blender bowl so that it comes up a quarter of the way. Purée until smooth. You want the consistency to be that of soup, so if you need to add more water, do so.
Since you are using only lightly salted cooking water for a base, not stock, you will need to salt this more than you would otherwise. Serve immediately into bowls. Drizzle olive oil over the top. Serves 4.
Florets boiling! We made the soup in the evening so these pics are HORRIBLE! I love shooting food photography in natural light, during the day.
All I used was a mini pyrex measuring cup to scoop the florets and some water out of the pot. Too much water in this batch so I had to dump some back in. You only want the water to come up a quarter of the way!
I see SOUP!
It really is so absolutely DELISH for only being cauliflower, olive oil and salt. We also added fresh cracked black pepper and that was scrumptious too. And I had leftovers for the following week which I quickly re-heated, on the fly, in a mug!
And per our usual, while I'm in the kitchen, someone has to be watching the baby. This particular evening the boys decided it was time for Mr. Chunkster to hit the baby weights. Thanks to my brother-in-law Ryan, Nash has his very own baby dumbbell (aka: a rattle) for working out those rollie pollie arms.
Two funny boys and their dumbbells! You must click this image and enlarge it...Nash's expression might be the funniest ever! He's giving his best 'Strong Baby Competition' expression. LOVE IT and this soup recipe. Try it asap!
