I love having a large bowl of good soup during the chilly months. Our apartment is quite small, and when the weather is bitter cold outside, you will find us taking about 90 steps in a day inside the apartment...Whoops, I think we may be a little off from the "10,000 goal!" But, always being honest here, I have to say Lazy behavior happens in our home. When it does, I know my body doesn't need a lot of fuel (aka calories) because I'm not using any of it! Let me be clear, I do NOT count calories. That can lead to an unhealthy mindset. Just eat real food, and be mindful that food tastes delicious, and feeds your brain, hair, skin, and nails! But not being active, and eating too much can lead to other issues as well! So all I'm trying to say is, on lazy days or sick days, this soup is perfectly nutritious, warming and goes great with warm biscuits or cornbread!
The rich color of this soup comes from orange cauliflower! They sell this in almost every grocery store. If you didn't know, cauliflower comes in a variety of colors; purple, orange, green and the most common white. Beauty Booster? You bet! Cauliflower aids in building stronger bones thanks to its high contents of Vitamin K. Your body will be saying, "thanks cauliflower"!
This soup has been a hit with everyone I know. Even my 11 year-old niece loves it at Thanksgiving time. A great idea is to serve it as an appetizer, to your loved ones, during the Holiday season. With a smooth texture and a "cheesy" flavor, you will be going back to this recipe again, and again.
1 Med-large head of Orange Cauliflower
4 cups chicken broth
4 tablespoons Nutritional yeast (or finely grated parmesan cheese)
1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Salt+ 1/2 tsp Pepper (more or less to taste)
Start by cutting your cauliflower into florets. (You cansave the leaves and saute them in olive oil if you want to create a pretty display when serving your soup!)
In a large pot add you florets and chicken broth and bring to boil. Cover with lid and reduce to simmer for about 15 min until the cauliflower becomes soft to touch with a fork. Let cool/safe to handle and add the contents (broth included) into a blender. You can do this in sections if needed.
*Or you can keep everything in the same pot and use a hand blender! Also known as an immersion blender, I have one linked below!
Once you have a creamy texture, then Add in your nutritional yeast, dijon mustard, salt & pepper and blend (or stir).
I pour my husband and I each a bowl straight from the blender then add the rest back to the same pot and keep warm on the stove.
Can't wait to have this with warm biscuts or corn bread, yummy!
