SOUP....'tis the season!

I accidentally made THE most delicious soup last night.......I had one yellow squash and half a cauliflower in the fridge (I'd cut up and baked squash, cauliflower, mushrooms, broccoli and asparagus the night before...tossed very lightly with olive oil and S&P...SO good) I had this little bunch of raw veg left.

I cut up the squash and cauliflower and put it in chicken broth (just a tad more than to cover the veg) and a splash of olive oil, brought it to a boil and simmered until the vegetables were soft...then I add S&P and a little garlic powder (never use garlic salt, by the way), and stuck an immersion blender into it........blended till creamy.  (You can also do this in a blender, depending on how much you have, you may want to do it in batches).

I had no milk, which I'd normally have put in it, and knew it needed something more so I shook some grated Parmesan cheese into it...NOT MUCH....and stirred it around.............then served it and shook a little on top again.   It was DELICIOUS.

VERY low in calories and no fat at all......great for leftover veggies.  I hope you enjoy it.  I just came back from the dentist and was feeling a chill and was so glad, in the car, when I remembered "You have soup leftover for lunch!"  mmmm

Happy eating!
