North African Cauliflower Soup

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups diced potatoes
  • 5 cups chopped cauliflower
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground fennel
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 2 vegetable bouillon cube
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • chopped tomatoes and chives

In a large Dutch oven or saucepan, sauté onions in water for 5 minutes, or until translucent.  Add more water as needed.

Add the potatoes, cumin, and fennel; cook for 1 minute.  Add the hot water; cover, turn up the heat and bring to a boil.  Add the cauliflower and bouillon cubes and return to a boil.

Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

In a blender, puree and vegetable/broth mixture until smooth.

Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste.  Reheat the soup, being careful not to scorch it.

Serve warm; garnish with chopped tomatoes and chives.
