Grocery Pride

It's been a LONG time since I've been to the grocery store and come out with something like this. Doesn't my food look pretty and delish!

Felt proud as my food was making its way along the converyor belt towards checkout. Of course the cashier, and two packing boys fighting over who was next could care less, but I was proud of me. No junk food. No processed ick. No Coke Zero!

Going to make my Cauliflower Bisque tonight so long as i can stand to stand that long again.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups leeks, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 cups cauliflower, 2 small heads
  • 6 ¾ cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 cup fat-free evaporated milk (or skim milk if you don't have evaporated)
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add leeks, celery, and garlic; sauté 10 min or until vegetables are tender but not brown. Add cauliflower; sauté 2 minutes. Add 6 cups chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes or until vegetables are very tender. Cool slightly.
Puree vegetables in batches in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy. Return to Dutch oven. Stir in evaporated milk, salt & pepper. Bring to a simmer, add remaining broth, cook 5 minutes or until heated through.

G Got this recipe off the WW community boards a while back and it's really nice and filling.
