Easy Peasy Creamy Cauliflower Soup

 

This is so easy, I know when people say recipe is easy that is not always the case. This is really very easy. Here we go! I posted last week some great sites for diabetic cookbooks and recipes. I try to include fat free and low carb as well. This week I am posting my own recipe.

 

1 head cauliflower rough chopped

2 stalks celery

1/2 yellow onion diced

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 tables spoon lemon juice

1 cup chicken or veggie broth

2 cups fat free half and half

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 clove chopped garlic

salt and pepper to taste

 

Steam cauliflower until tender set aside,in a deep pot sauté celery onions and garlic, add steamed cauliflower,spices and broth bring to a boil reduced heat and let simmer until the celery is tender. I use and immersion blender right in the pot. Remove the pot from the heat then blend until smooth, add in half and half, put back on to heat on low and simmer for 10 or more minutes. See! how easy was that?
