Cauliflower Soup

I know what you are all going to say, it’s the middle of summer, what on earth are you doing making soup.  Well, I just love soup and the cauliflower at the farmers markets was so fresh and beautiful.  Anyhow soup is great for anyone trying to lose weight, a liquid meal will keep you feeling fuller for longer than a solid meal, and I definitely need to shed some kilos.  Now as you may have already guessed not only is this soup delicious but also low-fat.

My version of Cauliflower Soup

1 onion, finely chopped
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
1 cauliflower, cut into florets
1 large potato, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
5 cups vegetable stock
salt and pepper to taste

Add a small amount of olive oil to your pot and over medium heat cook onion until it softens.  Add celery and cook for a further minute.

Add stock, potato, cauliflower, thyme and pepper.  Simmer for 20 minutes until cauliflower and potato and cooked. 

Allow to cool slightly, blend soup, return to heat, and add salt and pepper to taste.
