Broccoli Cauliflower Soup and More Questions Worthy of my Answer

Most of you had your finals this week. Mine is tomorrow and sunday for my six month 300 hr Yoga Teacher Training (the “grad school of yoga” as I call it).

So like anybody, I’m cramming, big time.

So instead of deep thoughts, I’ll leave you with some questions worthy of my answer (since my last batch was so popular)

Just like last time….Feel free to add your own questions and answers.

I decided to make my dad some garlic infused soup since I read somewhere that garlic is supposed to help lower blood pressure. This is pretty simple to make and light (since my dad is watch his cholesterol, so yea, no bacon added to this…). Also, my dad is on a strict low sodium diet, so I omitted salt. But if salt is no issue for you, salt away.

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 chopped onion (or leeks)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • about two cups broccoli (about a head)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (just no vanilla almond milk!)
  • 1 tsp black pepper corns
  • 1/3 cup roasted garlic cloves

Chop onions and garlic. In a large stock pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and stir until translucent. Pour water over the mixture and increase the heat to high and add the broccoli and black peppercorns. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes or until broccoli is soft. Using any sort of blender you’ve go,Β puree until smooth. Add milk and puree again. Pour into a bowl and use a spoon to me polite with a piece of bread to “mop up” the rest

always write dates on things....nothing tastes worse than elderly soup

  2. coumadin the BP drug is derived from curcumin, the active component in cumin. I posted about it this week. Cumin is good for anyone wanting to lower their BP. Garlic is antiviral, antimicrobial, etc. I did a post on what foods mean, why they work, etc. so this is all fresh in my mind.

    You are such an awesome daughter for making soup for your dad. My aunt actually did lower her cholesterol by eating profuse amounts of garlic, so I’m all for it!
