Vegetable Cream Soup

Posted by Solitary Dancer on March 17, 2006

This is a large-batch blender recipe

Low-Carb Vegetable Cream Soup

Basic Vegetable Cream Soup

Makes approximately 12 cups

* 1 lb. cauliflower
* 1 1/2 lbs. broccoli, or one of the suggestions above
* 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 10 cups chicken stock
* 1 tsp. salt
* 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
* 1 tsp. dried tarragon leaves, or herb of your choice
* sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
* heavy cream, optional

Trim the broccoli and cauliflower and chop coarsely. The core of the cauliflower and the broccoli should be used too. Save a few tiny florets of broccoli to add later.

In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and sizzle until it smells fragrant. Add the broccoli, cauliflower, stock and salt. Bring to a boil, turn down and cook at a lively simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

Puree in batches in a food processor or blender – a blender works best for this – with the mustard and tarragon add the broccoli florets and season to taste. Thin with stock or water if the soup is too thick. Add the cream if desired.

The dairy is optional and not included in the count.
