Cauliflower

Cauliflower

Today’s focus is on:  CAULIFLOWER. Also known as Cabbage Flower, cauliflower is a member of the Brassica family of veggies, well-known for their cancer fighting capabilities. Mon petit chou means (in French, chou is pronounced “shoe”) “my little cauliflower” and is a term of endearment! How do you like that?

Here’s today’s TRICK:

Take the stem off your cauliflower and keep it in an opened plastic bag in the fridge. It will last a good week, maybe longer!

And here’s a TIP:

To tone down the smell of cauliflower cooking, add a few celery seeds or some celery leaves to your cooking water. It won’t pick up the celery’s flavor, but it will certainly tame the smell!

And your RECIPE:

This is my daughter’s favorite soup!

Instructions
  1. Throw all ingredients except milk and cheese into a crock cooker and cook on low until vegetables are very tender, about 4-6 hours.
  2. Carefully pour mixture into work bowl of food processor fitting with steel blade or into blender container. Cover and process until smooth. OR, if you like it a little lumpy and bumpy like I do, use a potato masher and have at it in the crockpot itself--mash to your heart's delight.
  3. Place your cauliflower mixture into a saucepan; stir in milk and cheese. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted and mixture is hot.
