  • Add the cauliflower, defatted broth, water and bay leaves. Bring to a boil over high heat. reduce heat, cover and simmer until the vegetables are very soft, about 30 minutes.
  • Discard the bay leaves. reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid; pour into a small saucepan. Boil until reduced to about 3 tablespoons.
  • Working in batches, puree the vegetables and the remaining cooking liquid in a blender. Add the reduced cooking liquid to the soup in the blender. Season with sea salt and pepper.
  • To serve: ladle into soup bowls and, if desired, top each serving with 1 tablespoon of the yogurt which you swirl lightly into the top of the soup.
