Creamy Vegetable ( chicken ) soup. Low Carb.
« on: August 03, 2015, 03:26:24 am »
There is no added fat, cream, potato or flour in this soup and yet it is very creamy.
This makes4 cups or 1 litre.

Ingredients
3/4 Litre of vegetable or chicken stock. ( I made chicken by steaming in the basket, the bones from a take away chook).
1/4 of a large cauliflower or 1/2 of a small one. Broken up.
3 mushrooms, sliced
1/2 a Zucchini, cubed into 1/2 inch dice
1 carrot, cubed into 1/2 inch dice
A chicken flavour cube or I used a dessertspoon of Jo's Chichen stock paste.
Cubes of cooked chicken and chopped herbs for garnish ( optional)
Black or white Pepper. I used white.

Method

Cook cauliflower in chicken stock, 15 minutes/ 100/speed 2
Zap 30 seconds, speed 9
Add cubes of vegetables, and pepper, 10 minutes/ 100/speed1 REVERSE.
Add chicken, if using. Garnish with chopped parsley and chives.

Notes
Equally nice made with veggie stock and no chicken.

Thanks for the recipe Chookie.  This will be the next soup I make after the pumpkin soup is all gone.

Made this tonight. It is delicious. I would prefer it a little thicker so next time I would reduce the water or increase the cauliflower.

I read this yesterday, went and made it, then blitz it.
Just gave 2 x 2 lire ice cream containers full to my neighbors up the road.

I keep making them soups as it is easy for me, and easy to eat.
I am about to make more for my Mum and Dad. :)
Thankyou ACW
