Cauliflower With Chicken Soup Purée
by James Belardo

Here’s a great way to use the ‘left over’ vegetables from homemade Chicken stock (try our  version). The meat can be used to make sandwiches but also  can be used as a soup or even in soups. A good thing about making a purée is that it’s creamy without the cream! It’s great for milk/cream sensitive people and tastes just as delicious. We keep this recipe relatively simple but can you can also use the purée to make Curry or even Mock-Curry dishes like our Mock-Curry Chicken and Cauliflower recipe.

Ingredients
2 cups Vegetable purée (using the vegetables from homemade Chicken stock)
1 cup Chicken stock (try our homemade version)
2 cups water
1 head cauliflower, cup into small flowerettes. Cut the stalks into small pieces
Flat-Leaf Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste

Starch (suggested, but not needed)
Brown Rice
pasta

Directions
1. On medium-high, heat the purée with 1 cup of water
