Cauliflower and Leek Soup

As the cooler months approach, cauliflower season is right around corner.  Although it’s available year round, it tastes best during the cold months.
It’s a great vegetable to include in your diet because it’s very nutritious and low in calories, with only 29 calories per cup.  It’s also part of the cruciferous vegetable famlily that’s know for it’s health promoting sulfur compounds that help your body fight toxic substances.
Okay, enough with the health info.  This soup was made on a whim because there was some cauliflower in the fridge and I happened to picked up some fresh leeks at the farmers market. 
The ingredients are simple, the recipe doesn’t take very long, it’s healthy and tastes great.

Bake the Veggies in the Oven

Transfer your vegetables to the vegetable broth in a pot over medium heat.  I don’t put the veggies in the vegetable broth so they cook more,  I do it to help the flavors bind before putting them in the blender.
