Cauliflower Tomato Chowder

ingredients

  • 4 potatoes
  • 2/3 head of cauliflower
  • 4 cups water  or chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup meatless  chicken-flavored  broth powder, if using
  • 1 onion chopped and sautéed
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3-4 carrots chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped (fresh or frozen is ok)
  • 1 jar of home canned tomatoes or a 28oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 15oz can tomato puree
  • 2 small jalapeños
  • a dash of turmeric
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cream or half and half 

 

 

     Peel and dice the potatoes;  Trim and roughly chop the cauliflower;   Place in pot with water and cook till cauliflower is almost tender;  Remove the cauliflower and some potatoes;

     Chop the carrots and garlic and add them and the sauteed onion and red pepper  to the potato pot and cook till tender; Then blend with a blender, hand or otherwise, till rather smooth;

     Now add the broth powder, tomatoes, puree and cooked cauliflower;   Snip the jalapenos holding the stem, letting seeds and all fall in the pot—(the theory being that you won’t get your fingers burned with chili juice nor have to wear those annoying plastic gloves)

    Add cream or half and half and season with turmeric, salt and pepper;   when warmed just right, serve;  you may  wish to add a bit more water if you like it to have more broth
