Cauliflower Soup

I made cauliflower soup. This may not seem particularly post worthy but here's why I wanted to mention it:
  • It pretty much has two ingredients - could that be simpler? Easy to pick up on the way home, not a lot of prep!
  • Nutritionally it has almost no fat, and a good portion of protein and fiber
  • It doesn't make an enormous batch so if you're one person, like me, this means you don't have to eat it for a week. 
The recipe is from Whole Living, a Martha Stewart Magazine that I love. I couldn't find it on the website to link to so here it is:

2 1/2 cups of vegetable broth 
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
salt, pepper & olive oil

In a pot bring broth, florets, salt and pepper to a boil and then let simmer, covered, for 20 mins. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Take the small cauliflower leaves and coat with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until slightly brown. When the broth and florets are done, transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Voila! Garnish with little leaves. It makes about 4 small servings.

Now, today I bought ingredients to make this soup from 101cookbooks - I suspect I'll be eating it for a fortnight.
