Cauliflower Chick Pea Soup

Cauliflower Chick Pea SOup

With whipping winds and cold temperatures here in the northeast, I’ve set my thoughts to warm, hearty soups.  As we approach the #Thanksgiving holiday,  you know that you’ll be inundated with stuffing and meats and vegetables and pies so, soup could be a welcomed diversion.

As I’ve been making soups over the past few years, I’ve found that often the simplest ingredients make the best tasting soups.

This recipe for Cauliflower Chick Pea Soup (from my favorite soup expert Seriously Soupy) offers wonderfully nutty fall-like flavors from the combination of the chickpeas and celery.  And, when blended together, they give the soup a hint of cream, even though there’s no dairy, it only contains vegetables and some dill.

The bonus to the soup? If you’re hosting a wide age-range of people at your Thanksgiving day table, this soup serves dual purposes: to soothe hungry adults as well as a nice healthy puree for babies.
