5ml olive oil

1/4 tsp fresh garlic, chopped

50g chopped onion

150g cauliflower

200g potatoes, peeled and cubed

250ml chicken stock (add more if the chowder is too thick for you!)  Vegetarians use Veggie stock instead!

To serve:

30g low fat feta

A spring of thyme to serve

 

Fry onions and garlic in oil for few minutes, add the rest of the ingredients except feta and thyme to serve.

Simmer on low heat until potatoes are soft.

Liquidise and serve with feta and thyme

100g cooked white beans (I used canned cannelini beans)  This should work well with chickpeas, lentils and butterbeans

1/4 tsp crushed garlic

a squirt lemon juice

1/2 tsp olive oil (I used lemon infused olive oil)

5 fresh sage leaves

Salt and white pepper to taste

Fresh thyme to serve

 

Blitz together and serve on crackers or melba toast (I had Cracked Black Pepper Ryvita) and fresh thyme, and a fresh green salad.
