BroccoFlower Soup

This soup turned out to be kind of....ugly....but so so so tasty! It tasted fresh, healthy, vegetal and was sort of hearty at the same time.
Picture
3 heads broccoli (about 500gm)
1 head cauliflower (about 700 gm)
3 cups chicken stock (no sodium)
2 cups water
2 bay leaves

Seasonings: S+P, garlic powder, celery salt, italian seasoning, lemon juice, light-colored vinegar (I used rice)
**The seasonings are really individualized. I would imagine a curry/cumin would work fine, so would some ginger. Just use whatever flavor profiles you normally find pleasant on your vegetables***

Heat all the liquids to a boil.
Toss in the veg.
Cover.
Boil for about 15-20 minutes or until the veg becomes easy to break apart.

Blend. I used a stick blender but any food processor/blender would work just as well. You can work in batches.

Add-ins: I served it with about a tsp of 0% Nonfat Greek Yogurt (you can also use sour cream)

Goes really nicely with a toasted piece of bread for dipping.
Comes out to about 5 1.5-cup servings at some really low calorie amount per cup.
