RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
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.
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.

I would like to thank Newspaperarchive for putting together such a fabulous service, and placing our Nation's history right at our fingertips. Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
