Cauliflower & Artichoke Soup

I had lots of cauliflower on hand so I searched for a recipe that was a bit different than my normal cream of cauliflower soup.  Since I always have a can of artichoke hearts in the cupboard, this recipe caught my eye.  Surprisingly, the cauliflower and artichoke make a good combination.

Cauliflower & Artichoke Soup

2            tablespoons vegan margarine
2            tablespoons grapeseed oil
1/4         teaspoon red pepper flakes
1            15-oz. can artichoke hearts, chopped
1            large head of cauliflower, chopped
1            small red onion chopped
3-4         cloves garlic, chopped
1/2         can coconut milk
1/2         cup soy or almond milk
              salt to taste
              pepper, to taste

In a soup pot, melt margarine in grapeseed oil. Add red pepper flakes

Add artichoke hearts, cauliflower, red onion, and garlic to pot. Add enough water to just cover the veggies. Cook covered with lid over medium-high heat until cauliflower is very tender, about 15 minutes.

Put mixture into blender, working in batches if you need to … and be careful since it’s hot.  Add coconut milk and so/almond milk.  Blend until smooth.

Return to pot and re-heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper
