Cauliflower soup with crostini

Seriously one of the most healthy and yet ridiculously awesome recipes I've ever come across. Cheap, too! And EASY!

Cauliflower soup
Serves ~4 hearty servings

  • 1-2 onions, diced roughly
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 medium heads cauliflower (or mix cauli/broccoli) chopped into smallish pieces
  • 4 cups chicken broth (or water, or beef broth, or veggie broth, anything you want really)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • Milk to cover (or soy milk, or no milk)
Melt butter in big pot over medium heat. Toss in chopped onions and garlic and let come to the point where they are all translucent, but not browned. 

Throw in cauliflower or broccoli or both, and maybe some potatoes. Stir in with onions and garlic for about 10 minutes. Pour in broth and fill with milk, or nothing, until the veggies are covered.

Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium-low heat for about 30 minutes. Allow to cool some. Blend in blender in batches until it's about 90% blended, and add whole pieces for the rest, for some texture. Eat.
