Instead of making soup one sunday afternoon for weekday lunches, I decided to make a cauliflower and carrot puree. To the puree I added sauteed onions and mushrooms. I enjoyed having it as part of my lunch during the week. When reheating your serving it in the microwave, you could add grated cheese to it.
1/2 cauliflower cut into small chunks
2 carrots, sliced into pieces
1 tbsp oil
1 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
6 mushrooms, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium size pot, add the cauliflower and carrots to water, bring to a boil and cook on medium high until tender. In a separate frying pan, heat the oil and add the garlic, onions and mushrooms. Cook on medium low until the onions and mushrooms are soft. Set aside.
Drain the cauliflower and carrots and mash using a potato masher, food processor or hand held blender. Puree until smooth. Add the onions and mushrooms to the puree. Season with salt and pepper. Combine. Serves 4.
