Soup – Cauliflower and Chickpeas
by James Belardo

Here’s a great way to use the ‘left over’ vegetables from homemade Stock – Chicken or Turkey, puréed. Puréed vegetables help make a soup creamy without the cream and can be a great substitute for milk or cream, it tastes delicious and adds a creamy texture. The purée is pure ‘gold,’ creamy without the cream a super healthy! We can also suggest to use the purée to make Curry or even Mock-Curry dishes like our Mock-Curry Chicken and Cauliflower recipe.

Ingredients

  • Vegetable Purée from homemade homemade Stock – Chicken or Turkey
  • 3 cups Stock – Chicken or Turkey (try our homemade version)
  • chicken pieces (leftover from making stock from bones)

  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
