Cauliflower and Potato Soup: VeganMoFo #15



I'm a Veganwannabe: Post #15

Who needs to eat out at fancy restaurants like Six.One.Six in (Grand Rapids, MI) where the food is beautifully prepared and professionally presented? Um…. I do!

Here’s their Cauliflower Soup with Cinnamon Applesauce Reduction. SO GOOD!




Here’s mine created in my own kitchen.  Hilarious, I know, but it tasted great! I even served mine with sliced apples and ….well, I didn’t have micro greens, so I used the last few sprigs of bitter parsley from my deck garden. More hilarity. 

Simmer cauliflower and potatoes in vegetable broth until very tender. My broth was very dark, thus the dark colored soup. How they got their's so light in color still amazes me. Whirl the tender veggies until totally smooth. Reduce a bit of applesauce until it is thick enough to drizzle in a beautiful pattern over your soup (still more hilarity....) Serve on a beautiful plate with fresh apple and micro greens....or old parsley from the frozen garden. 

On a serious note: soup is so comforting and this was the easiest and most delicious soup...I mean really, three ingredients? Cauliflower, potatoes and broth. You can't go wrong.  If you're not up to the fancy applesauce reduction with the even fancier presentation, don't feel bad! Just make the soup and go easy on yourself! We can't all be restaurant chefs!
