Cauliflower Bisque

http://www.wgbh.org/imageassets/051097020-02-cheddar-cauliflower-soup.jpg

What you need:

-1 small head califlower, cut into small chunks

-1 small onion or leek, diced

-1 rib celery, chopped

-3 cups chicken or vegetable broth

-1 or 2 (1oz.) wedges Lite Laughing Cow cheese

-salt & pepper to taste

-chopped fresh parsley for garnish

How to:

In a 3-quart saucepan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, sauté the onion or leek and celery. Add the chopped cauliflower, a bit of salt & pepper and the broth; simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer all or half (if a chunky texture is preferred) of the soup to a blender, add cheese wedge and puree until smooth or use a stick blender to achieve desired texture. Stir in parsley and serve.                                                                

*This is reminiscent of potato leek soup and is one of my favorite soups! You could also add some cooked shrimp or crab for a seafood bisque. Yellow summer squash can be added or substituted for the cauliflower for an equally delicious alternative. Sautéed mushrooms and broccoli or spinach are also wonderful additions; top with low fat cheese if desired.
