Clam Chowder

Made this recipe for my Solstice party tonight.  No time for a decent photo.  Proof of how delicious it was is at the end of the pot.
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
5 carrots, cut into small pieces
5 celery spears, chopped
2 leeks, halved and sliced (whites only)
4-8 cups of bone broth (I used beef, fish would be good too).
2 heads of cauliflower, 1 1/2 whole, 1/2 in florets
2 cans of minced clams with juice
2 tsp. dill
Bay leaf
Salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion, garlic.  Add carrot, celery and cook for a few minutes.  Add broth, whole cauliflower and cauliflower florets.  Add both cans of clams, dill, and bay leaf.  Let simmer until veggies are soft (30 minutes).  Remove whole pieces of cauliflower and puree in the blender with some bone broth.  Add back into chowder for creamy effect.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Enjoy.

Majica, this was delicious!!! I served it last night to a family not too fond of cauliflower. They had seconds (always a good sign). It was very filling, too.
