The 5 Minute Lunch Solution

Share

caulflower soupThere are way too many healthy foods that start with the letter C! The C food for today is cauliflower.  This cauliflower soup is the quickest soup you’ll ever make! You can have soup on the table, faster than you could get lunch from a drive-thru. So, really, why go through a drive thru?

This cauliflower soup only takes two steps:

Step 1:

Steam or roast chopped cauliflower (this took 5 minutes to steam in my rice cooker)

Step 2:

Blend cauliflower in blender using:

  • 2 cups cauliflower
  • 1 cup warm low fat milk
  • 2 TBL parmesan cheese
  • Season with salt, pepper, and parsley
cauliflower

And that is all!  The best meals are the most simple meals.  If you are looking to make a quick lunch, this is your recipe.  However, just the other day, the Meal Makeover Mom’s also posted a cauliflower soup.  So, for something more substantial and flavorful (and dairy free), also check out their recipe.

Went to the back of a cookbook with my son and here’s our suggestions:
Dill
Dark Chocolate? :)
Devilled Eggs
Dough
Doughnuts
Dover sole
Dip
Dirty Rice
Dressing
Or a bit more creatively:
Dipped _____
Diamond shaped ______
Double _______
Dried _____

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

Dragonfruit is awesome if you can find it. It really is gorgeous, and delicious. How about dulce? It’s a kind if sea vegetable and I really enjoy it as well. Or how about delicata squash? If you’re feeling REALLY adventurous, then now would be the time to try Durian. I haven’t been brave enough to tackle it yet. It’s a bit of a stretch since it’s not a “primary” ingredient, but you could also do dashi.

This soup looks good and I love cauliflower. I’ll think about some foods that start with “D” but I like the ideas here already, especially some dips maybe one for fruit and one for veggies.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea!

And for reminding me that meals don’t have to be either (complicated, time consuming) / or (open a not-so-nutritious can of soup)!
Cheers
