I think Mr. PT was getting a little tired of our squash varieties. So I turned to a vegetable I do not often use...cauliflower!
When I was little my mom would make broccoli soup. I was the only kid that would eat the slimy green stuff. But it was so delicious! So when I found this recipe for a non-dairy cauliflower soup (www.elanaspantry.com), I had to try it.
You will need:
-1 head of cauliflower
-3-4 tbs of olive oil
-1 sweet onion
-3-4 cups of water or vegetable stock
Rub cauliflower with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Put in a baking dish with 1/2 cup of water. Bake for 1.5 hours at 350. Remove and cool. Chop it up!
Saute onion in a pan until soft. Add cauliflower and stock and simmer for about 10 minutes. Puree in a blender until smooth. Return to the pan and simmer. I added dried parsley, tarragon, and a pinch of black pepper.
So good, and so good for you!
Combine with a home circuit...do 3 sets of 10 push-ups, 20 crunches, 15 squats and 50 jumping jacks. Finish with stretching.
