Cauliflower Soup

This soup was inspired by the fact that the refrigerator is broken and I wanted to use up the produce before it goes.  Los Angeles weather has been bipolar but I had both a cold and a head of cauliflower, and I had recently seen a recipe for cauliflower leek soup on this awesome blog.  Soup it was.

Ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower, chopped
2 leeks, trimmed and chopped
1 shallot, minced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbsp. butter (so I cheated and used 3)
Onion salt to taste

Method:

1. Melt the butter over medium heat, then sautee the garlic and shallot until limp.  Add the cauliflower and leeks and cook for a few minutes.

2.  Add 4 cups of water and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, then simmer for about 30 minutes or until cauliflower is soft enough to mash easily with a spoon or a fork.

3.  Add onion salt to taste.

4.  Turn off heat, then mash veggies by hand OR allow to cool and send the whole thing through a food processor/blender.  I am far too lazy for that sort of thing so I mashed it all with a big wooden spoon.  The cauliflower was so soft by that point that it took only a few minutes.  It was also totally delicious.
