Lemon Artichoke Soup

This yummy summer soup uses cauliflower to make a delicious creamy soup without the cream!

Ingredients:
• 2 TBSP ghee (healthy alternative to butter)
• ½ onion, chopped
• 2 celery stalks, chopped
• 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 quart chicken or vegetable broth
• 2 cans (or packages) artichoke hearts, chopped
• 1 head of cauliflower
• Juice of ½ – 1 lemon
• 1 tsp dried tarragon (optional)
• salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Heat ghee in large pot over medium heat.

2. Sauté chopped onion, celery and garlic until soft.

3. Add cauliflower and 1 cup of the chicken/veggie broth; cover to steam the cauliflower. Once cauliflower is tender, add remainder of the chicken/veggie broth. Add artichoke hearts and simmer 10 minutes.

4. Puree soup in pot with an immersion blender. (You can also pour the soup into a blender or a bowl and use a hand mixer to blend, then return soup to pot.)

5. Add lemon juice (and tarragon if desired) and continue heating until serving temperature.

6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cauliflower is a delicious secret ingredient that can be used to make so many soups creamier, without the added calories of cream (or unwanted dairy).
