I made this the other night and am still eating it. Soup is my absolute favorite meal to make because I start it around 10 AM with the girls being all crazy-cut everything up into big chunks, add broth, and then just put it on low and simmer all day. Then I puree before dinner and that's it. I don't have to worry about having to stop half way through to clean up blood or vomit of whatever insane thing is happening around here.
This one is a curry with cauliflower and potatoes. I usually make these recipes up, using whatever we have. I just make sure to always have potatoes and veggie broth on hand. And a lemon. Oh, and a stick blender. There is no way I am pouring hot soup in and out of a blender, man.
Curry Cauliflower Soup
1-2 yellow diced onions
4-5 Yukon gold potatoes cubed (I don't peel these)
1 head cauliflower chopped
1 tsp curry powder or more
1 tsp cumin
1 pinch cayenne or more
salt and pepper
lemon juice for 1 lemon
1 box veggie broth
milk or evaporated milk
In a bit of olive oil, saute the onions about 5-7 minutes. Add the spices and the potatoes and saute another 5 minutes. Add the chopped cauliflower. Then add the broth and a bit of water--you need to cover everything. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer and cover. If you are in a hurry this will take about 40 minutes to cook, otherwise I let it simmer all day. Puree with the stick blender and then add the lemon juice and enough milk to change the color and make it creamy. Taste and add more salt/pepper/cayenne as needed.
Pete and I say Soup, there it is about 10 times a day and it never stops being funny.
