Cauliflower Garlic Soup

Cauliflower Garlic Soup

1 head of cauliflower cut up into pieces
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 onion, diced
 4 cups of broth
(That's the base recipe - I added 1.5 small potatoes to enhance mouth feel)

Saute onion in 1 TBSP olive oil over med heat about five min; add garlic and saute a couple min more. Add cauliflower (potatoes if using) and broth. Bring to low boil, cover and cook til tender about 10-15 min. Blend with hand blender, food processor or blender til smooth. Leave it a little chunky if you prefer. If you do dairy, add milk if you'd like it thinner. I found my broth salty enough that I didn't add any salt. Added a bit of pepper, red pepper flakes and parsley. You can add parm cheese on top or in it if you prefer.
