Allie mentioned setting up a ‘soup’ thread and it had been running through my mind. I will copy some of the previously posted recipes …. so here goes ….
CAULIFLOWER and RED PEPPER SOUP
Approx 6 servings
1tbs olive oil
1 medium/large head of cauliflower, cut up
4 red peppers, skin removed & chopped (grill/roast/flame leave in sealed polythene bag to cool, then skinned)
1 large onion, chopped
2 or 3 sticks of celery, chopped
2 vegetable or chicken stock cubes
1.5 litres water
1tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste
Saute the onions and celery together in olive oil until soft.
Add smoked paprika and cook for 30 seconds or so.
Add cauliflower, stock cubes and water and cook for about 20 mins.
Add red peppers and cook for a further 20 mins or so.
Whizz with stick blender/liquidise.
Makes a really lovely creamy soup.
About 80 cals and 10g carbs per serving but you need to weight the uncooked ingredients to be accurate.
