Vegan MoFo - September 9th - Healthy Start

Tonight's healthy tea time is also a pretty easy one and you can leave it cooking while you do something else - bonus!

I wanted to make use of the smoked garlic I bought last week and cauliflower soup seemed like the perfect vessel to carry its flavour. 



Cauliflower Soup with Smoked Garlic and Coriander serves 4

25g dairy-free margarine
1 onion, chopped
1 leek, chopped
1 baking potato, diced
1/2 bulb smoked garlic, chopped
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1.5 litres stock
2 tbsp rice milk
15g fresh coriander, chopped

1. Melt the margarine in a large saucepan and cook the onion, leek and potato for about 10 min until softened, adding the garlic halfway through.
2. Add the cauliflower and stock, bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer for around 20 min until cooked through. 
3. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth. Stir in the rice milk and coriander. Reheat gently if needed.
