Cauliflower soup

When it comes to healthy food, sometimes it lacks flavour. Even this morning while watching Martha Stewart special programme about Body and Soul magazine, Martha was given a healthy food tray that it's ok to have before sleep with banana, almond, and spinach, milk. She wasn't very pleased with that. But another tray had salami sandwich with potato fries, chocolate bar and diet soda. I thought, come on!!! Who eats such food before the bed?! I would have nightmares!!! Yes, salami tases great and pizza with salami is even better. However, I don't know anyone who eats pizza or drinks coke every day. Or am I surrounded by healthy food freaks? I'm lucky that I would choose that banana with spinach and take the salami from the unhealthy tray... Well, everything in moderation...
But the soup I cooked for yesterday's dinner was definitely very healthy and very tasty so I'm waiting for the evening to have another serving!!!

What we need:

1 head of a small cauliflower
1 big potato
1 carrot
1 onion
1 tbsp of olive oil
100 ml of milk
salt and pepper to taste
500 ml of water or vegetable or chicken stock
a pinch of dried oregano
some chilli pepper for a kick

What we have to do:

1. Cut potatoes and onion. Put then in a pot with some olive oil. Let is fry for 2-3 minutes, then add cauliflower, salt and pepper, milk and vegetable stock. Bring it to boil and simmer for 15 min.
2. Blend cooked vegetables with a hand-held blender and season with dried oregano and chilli pepper.
3. Garnish with parsley and serve!!! Enjoy!
