This is a healthy choice, low-carb meal using "something different for a change" Just add a grilled/broiled piece of chicken, and you have a nice portion for a simple lunch and/or dinner.

head cauliflower, cored, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In large saucepot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
Saute onion and garlic, until onions are translucent

Add cauliflower and vegetable stock.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer until cauliflower softens, approx. 15-20 min.
3
Add kale and simmer for another 5 minutes.
NOTE: I like the mixture just as it is at this stage; has some substance, so I just mash a little with a hand masher and skip Step 4, but do add a little salt and pepper to taste. But if you like, you can continue with the following directions.

Let mixture cool completely. Then, transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Return the soup to the saucepot and bring to simmer.
