Creamy Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup

I made some 'alfredo' sauce with cauliflower last week and couldn't stop eating it like a soup.  So I decided to make some as soup for dinner.  Changed it a bit and it was delicious!  And easy to make!   Feel free to season as desired, I just find the bouillon cubes worked great. I forgot to take a picture when I was done, so here is a makeshift picture of a happy little girl enjoying her bowl of soup with some delicious bread from Katic based in Aurora, Il.

These are the kind of bouillon cubes that I used for seasoning.

Creamy Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup

1 head of fresh cauliflower (or 1 bag of frozen cauliflower will work)
2 leeks
1 onion
6-8 cloves of garlic
3 cups of water
2 cups of almond milk
3 cubes of chicken bouillon
1 bag of broccoli

Steam cauliflower.  Chop leeks and rinse.  Roughly chop onion and garlic.  Saute in onion, garlic, and leeks in a small amount of coconut oil.  When cauliflower is steamed, put in blender and start to steam broccoli.   Blend steamed cauliflower and sautéed veggies in blender or processor with water, milk and bouillon cubes.  

Add mix to large pot and keep warm on lowest heat.   When broccoli is steamed add to pot and stir.  


Here's a picture when I made it with broccoli and carrots.  It's been a once a week soup now.  We vary the vegetables that we add to mix it up a bit.  Love it!
