::White Leek Soup ::

My soups usually tastes good but today's concoction was just amazing. I decided it was important to pen this one down...

1/2 onion, chopped
1 bunch of baby carrots, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/3 cauliflower head, chopped
1/3 cabbage, chopped
1 leek, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
1 beefsteak tomato, whole

1. Heat up 1-2 tbsp evoo
2. Throw in the onions until translucent
3. Add in the red peppers and carrots and fry for a few more minutes
4. Add in the cauliflower and stir for a few more minutes
5. Add in 2 cups of broth and bring to boil
6. Add the cabbage and leak with remaining 2 cups of broth and bring to boil again
7. Turn off heat and pour everything into the blender (vitamix) and you might need 2 batches
8. Blend on high for 2 minutes until smooth and creamy
9. Season accordingly (i use swiss edamare and sea salt) and blend on medium for 30 seconds
9. Throw in the tomato and blend on low (level 2 on the vitamix) for 30 seconds (the idea is that you can still see the bits of the tomato floating around)
10. Serve immediately. YUM!
