What's cooking? Wednesday - Broccoli Cauliflower soup

This is another of my experiments with the VitaMix blender.  It's super good and is adaptable to different diets.  I use imitation bacon bits because my husband doesn't eat bacon but either is fine...whatever your preference!  Same with cheese could use shredded cheddar cheese instead.  Anyway, play around with it and see if your family likes it too.

Broccoli Cauliflower Soup...yum!
Broccoli Cauliflower Soup

2 c. broccoli florets
2 c. cauliflower florets
1 medium onion, quartered
1 T. chicken soup base
abt. 2 c. water
2 T. cheese powder
1/4 c. almonds (optional)
bacon bits (real or imitation) to sprinkle on top
pepper to taste

In large pan combine the broccoli, cauliflower, onion, chicken soup base and water.  Cook until broccoli and cauliflower are tender.
Transfer ingredients to blender bowl.  Add cheese powder and almonds.  Blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour into bowls and top with a sprinkle of bacon bits and a little pepper.
Serve with a crisp green salad and warm bread.  Yum!
