Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup

Saturday, February 25, 2012

Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup


1/2 of a cauliflower
A bunch of broccoli
1/2 of a zucchini and yellow squash
1 to 3 stalks of bok choy (the white stems cut up and sauteed, the green leaf tear up with the other greens)
2 to 3 stalks of celery
1/2 cup onion
1 to 2 cups white kidney beans
1/2 red pepper (any color pepper would work)
big pile of torn up greens
6 cups of water
1 cube of veggie broth
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, Mrs. dash, garlic, curry powder, seasoned salt

Directions:

Chop up the onion, red pepper, stalks of celery, bok choy (the white stem part), zucchini and yellow squash then add to the stock pot with a little water (broth or oil can be used) and sauteed. Then cut up the cauliflower and broccoli. When done sauteing, add the 6 cups of water, 1 cube of veggie broth, some spices (to taste), cauliflower and broccoli.

Let the soup cook for about 10- 20 minutes (I don't remember how long ) on a medium heat.

Tear all the greens into small pieces to make a big pile (I used collards, turnip greens, bok choy, and kale) I add the greens at the end.

Add the beans to the pot. Stir and add more spices if needed and let the soup cook until it came to a boil (I just don't remember how long but not very long) and then turn off. Add the greens in and let the greens wilt in the pot for a few minutes.

I used my hand blender to puree the soup. And now its ready to eat. I still added more spices.

Note:

I didn't measure anything so all the measurements are a guess.

If your thinking the beans sounds weird in squash soup, you can't even taste them after the soup is pureed (I'm not a fan of beans)

I always add more and different veggies each time I make this soup, but feel free to add what ever you want. I figured the more veggies the better.

    This sounds like a lovely recipe. In my country we don't have squash... but I suppose I could try it with pumpkin...
