• Broccoli Cauliflower Cannellini Soup

    IMG_0767

    Once there is the slightest chill in the air, all I can think about is soup! When contemplating my search for a new soup recipe, I decided that  since my Roasted Cauliflower Chickpea Soup is loved so much I would make a soup with a similar taste but with a new twist. It’s so freaking yummy, you should definately make this if you are a soup person! I added broccoli in addition to the cauliflower and instead of using chickpeas I used cannellini beans. This soup is made in one pot so there is no roasting at all! I love the warmth that cumin and curry  add to soup so I used the same spices. I added some fresh thyme this time and it was delicious! 45 minutes from start to finish! This soup is a meal on its own, but if you are looking for something heartier with even more protein, just add some rotisserie shredded chicken! I love blending my soups so that I can add more yumminess when enjoying. I love sautéing mushrooms to throw in too when serving! Anything goes!IMG_0732

    • 2 12oz. bags of broccoli/cauliflower mix or 1 bag of each
    • 1 lb.13oz. can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
    • 8 cups sodium free chicken broth (vegetable broth is good too, especially if you are vegetarian)
    • Mirepoix (soup starter~I buy this at Trader Joes, it makes soup making simple) or 1 onion, chopped, 2 stalks of celery, chopped and 2 carrots, chopped.
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 3 cloves garlic, whole
    • 2 teaspoons cumin

    • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme

    Directions:

    Heat oil in large pot over medium heat.

    Add onion, celery and carrot and cook for about 5 minutes

    Add cumin, curry, cayenne, pepper. Stir.

    Add thyme, broccoli and cauliflower, and broth and stir.

    Raise heat a bit and bring to a boil.

    Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 35 minutes.

    Add beans and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

    Remove from heat and blend using an emersion blender (see below to order your own-best investment!) until all large chunks are blended.

    Add salt and pepper to taste ( I do not use a lot of salt so prefer to add salt after).

    Serve and enJOY!
