My Favorite Soup: Cauliflower Leek

This is bar none my favorite soup.  It’s yummy, healthy and really easy to make.  And what’s even more fantastic about is that my mom and I just made up the recipe on the fly.

Ingredients:

– 1 head cauliflower, chopped up

– 1 container soft tofu

– 1/2 cup soy milk (make sure you’re using unsweetened) (Note: used 1 cup – too much)

– 4 cups vegetable stock (Note: used 5 cups – too much)

– 2 leeks, white parts only, or one whole leek, chopped

– 1 tablespoon olive oil

– 2 cloves garlic

– Dash cayenne pepper

– Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

– Heat olive oil in the bottom of a large soup pot.  Add leeks and saute until soft.  Add garlic.

– Add vegetable stock and cauliflower

– Simmer until cauliflower is soft

– In a separate bowl, combine tofu and soy milk and mix with stick blender until smooth, then add to soup

– Use stick blender to mix everything until creamy

– Add salt, pepper and cayenne to taste

Variations:  added 1/3 cup  frozen peas before blending and cooked wild rice after.  Yummy.  Or add a chopped potato in with the cauliflower.
