Snowy Tree and Dill Soup

I made this soup day one of GAPS improvising – if you are on a soup diet and are craving potatoes, this is for you.  Usually creamy means potatoes, milk, etc.  so I was pleasantly surprised at the effect of my surprise ingredient – cauliflower!  (I don’t even like cauliflower!)  So I fixed the name for ME and the kids –

Snowy Tree and Dill Soup

White Tree Soup

1 tbsp. olive oil or butter

1 small white onion, sliced 1/4 inch thick

3 small cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

1 head of cauliflower, trimmed and washed

3 tbsp. fresh baby dill, chopped (herb)

5 c. chicken stock

1 tsp. salt (or more to taste)

Heat olive oil in a 4 quart pan on med-high heat, add onion when hot.  Reduce heat to medium and cook onion until mostly translucent, about 8 minutes.  Add garlic, sautee about 2 minutes.  Add cauliflower, dill, chicken stock, salt.  Increase heat to high, bring to a boil.  Cover and reduce heat.  Cook 25-30 minutes or until cauliflower is very tender.  Puree with an immersion blender.  Add tbsp. creme fraiche or yogurt for extra creaminess.  Serve alone or with chopped chicken breast.
