I had a little potato leek soup leftover and had purchased a head of cauliflower today. I thought I’d make a soup with cauliflower and seitan (I had some chorizo seitan from Upton’s that I also bought today).
I steamed about half the cauliflower, cut into florets, for about 3 minutes, covered, then removed the water, put about a cup of the soup base in, as well as 1/4 of the seitan package (about 2 ounces), 3/4 of a bell pepper cut into strips, a tablespoon of nutritional yeast, a pinch of salt, 1/4 t freshly ground black pepper, and 1/2 t garlic powder. I simmered, uncovered, for 7-10 minutes, then served, along with cucumber slices and crackers. Simple, fast, and nutritious!
Ideas for the future
Chunks of potatoes would have been good, as well as chives. I was in a bit of a rush to put dinner together, so something more “interesting” than crackers, such as a vegetable dish, would have been nice, but, in any case, dinner was filling.
