Healthy Simple Spinach and Cauliflower Soup
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 Large head of cauliflower, cleaned and trimmed into florets
6 cups vegetable stock
10 ounces raw spinach
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
1: In a heavy bottomed pot, heat olive oil over medium heat.
2: Add chopped onion to oil and sauté until softened and slightly browned.
3: Add the cauliflower pieces and sauté until slightly browned. This adds a really nice flavor, but isn’t necessary.
4: Add the vegetable stock to the pot and bring to a low simmer. Cover the pot. Simmer gently until the cauliflower is tender. About 20 minutes.
5: Once the cauliflower is tender, remove from heat and immediately add the spinach leaves. Stir well and allow the hot broth to wilt the spinach for 10 minutes.
6: Add red pepper flakes.
7: Use a stick blender to puree soup into a thick, smooth consistency. You can also use a blender to carefully puree the soup in batches.
8: Taste and correct seasoning with salt and pepper to your liking.
9: If you like your soup thinner, feel free to add more vegetable stock after you’ve pureed.
