Soup! So awesome this time of year. I wanted to make a veggie heavy soup and found this recipe. It sounded totally delicious, but I wanted to lighten it up a bit and eliminate the evaporated milk. I came up with the following and am loving the result
- 1 lb frozen cauliflower (keep it frozen and dump it right into the crock pot)
- 1 large sweet potato, cubed (no need to peel)
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, diced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 1 cup low-fat milk
- 1 tablespoon butter
Combine the cauliflower, sweet potato, broth, onion, thyme, garlic, and ground red pepper in the crock pot and set to high for 3-4 hours.
Add the milk and butter. Use an immersion blender (or transfer to a food processor) and blend until smooth.
Are you having a good week? Ours has been just lovely. I wanted to share this picture of Kaylin hug attacking her Uncle:
