RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

SOUPS

Curried Cauliflower Soup, American

My mother is an expert at concocting variations of vegetable soups. Her soup recipes are great for dieting as they are filling, taste good and are low in calories, but high in nutrients.

Ingredients
  • 1 Large onion
  • 2 Large stalks of celery
  • 2 or 3 carrots
  • 2 or 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 9 cups water or broth
  • 3 Tbsp. "Better than Bouillon"
  • 1 Tbsp. Curry powder or cumin (or both, depending on taste)
  • 1 Cauliflower
  • 1 Cup milk or cream
Preparation Instructions

Mince onion, celery and carrots. Sauté together with olive oil until limp or browned (about 5 - 10 minutes). Add water (and bouillon) or stock and spices. Break cauliflower into flowerets and add to soup. Boil for 25 minutes, the run the entire pot contents through your food processor or blender. Blend in milk or cream and serve.

Serving Suggestions: This soup can be "dressed up" and served as a first course at dinner or luncheon. To do so, garnish with finely chopped parsley or chives and a dollop of sour cream.
