Golden Potato-Cauliflower Soup

Meatless Monday!

Guess what day it is! MEATLESS MONDAY! I love potato soup. Why not make it healthier? Add some cauliflower! This came from Health magazine.

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup french bread, cubed
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/3 cup shallots, finely chopped
2 1/2 cups cauliflower, sliced
3/4 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and chopped
28 ounces low sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper, freshly ground
1 teaspoon lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. To prepare croutons, combine cumin and 1 teaspoon oil in a bowl; add bread cubes, and toss to coat. Spread bread cubes on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until golden. Cool croutons slightly; set aside.

3. To prepare soup, heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and celery; cover and cook 2 minutes. Stir in cauliflower, potato, broth, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil.

4. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add lemon juice. Place vegetable mixture, in batches, in a food processor; process until smooth.

5. Divide soup evenly among 4 bowls; serve with croutons, and top with chives, if desired.

Serves 4.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
