This calls for cauliflower!

Is it still cold enough for soup?

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 (, I had to try it.

You will need:

-1 head of cauliflower
-3-4 tbs of olive oil
-pinch salt
-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 3 sets of 10 push-ups, 20 crunches, 15 squats and 50 jumping jacks.  Finish with stretching.
