Warm Up This Winter with a Healthy Soup

Posted January 24th, 2012 by Linda with No Comments

January is National Soup month – a perfect meal for the colder winter months! Try this yummy recipe:

Chickpea and Cauliflower Soup

1 tbsp. olive oil
3-6 cloves garlic; chopped
1 small head or ½ large head cauliflower; chopped
3-4 cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas); drained (and rinsed if desired)
4 cups vegetable broth
Herbamare to taste (if you can’t find Herbamare, use a mix of Sea Salt, onion, chive, parsley, garlic, basil, marjoram, rosemary, and thyme)

In a large pot, warm olive oil over medium heat and add chopped garlic. Sauté garlic until it just starts to brown. Do NOT burn.

Add beans, cauliflower and some Herbamare to pot, stir.

Add vegetable broth. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.

Reduce heat to medium/low. Cover and simmer 30 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.

Remove soup from heat. Puree with hand blender until smooth.

Serve hot.


~ If you do not have a hand blender soup can be pureed with a regular blender. Carefully add the soup to a blender a little bit at a time. Puree.

~ Try adding sautéed squash or vegetables to the soup just before serving.
