Cauliflower and Broccoli Chowder Recipe

5 Nov

I got this recipe from my girl, Minus the 46 early last week in an email, and I have been drooling over the thought of making it ever since then.

I took her recipe and doctored it up a bit.  I added onion and celery, because…well I think they make a fabulous starting point to many a soup.  I also used Herbs De Provence as my seasoning.  I am a sucker for sage about any time of the year, but when it is cold outside…sage is my seasoning boo!

8 cups of cauliflower (2 heads)
6 cups of broccoli (1.5 heads)
4 cups of broth (I used vegetable she used chicken in hers)
1 medium onion diced
2 cups of diced celery
seasoning of choice (I used Herbs De Provence)
Optional: Cheddar Cheese, Parmesan Cheese, and or bacon ( I used 1 cup of Cheddar Cheese no bacon)

Saute onions and celery until tender.  I used non-stick spray, but you could use butter if you are so inclined.  Then add in broccoli and cauliflower.  I had to do this in two batches.  Once the first batch had softened a bit, I had room to add the rest of the broccoli cauliflower mix.    I added my seasoning at this point.  Cover and steam until veggies are very tender.  Either with an immersion blender or a food processor puree the veggie mix with the broth.  I used my trustee food processor and did this in two batches since it would not all fit in the processor.  Return to pot to warm and add cheese (if using at this time).

You can cut this recipe in half easily.  I doubled it so I would have enough for dinner Sunday night and work lunch all week.

This recipe, as I made it, made 8 servings at 1 and 1/3 cup as the serving size.

It is delicious and extremely filling!  I have been living off of soup for lunch for the past few weeks, and I could not finish my serving for lunch I was so full.  That is a huge plus in my book!
