This was on my tea box. It sounds good and not high in calories!

Chamomile Cauliflower Soup

The subtle flavor of chamomile enhances this classic soup, and it's very low in fat.

3 cups water
6 Chamomile tea bags
1 large head of cauliflower, cut into 3" pieces
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 Tbsp. butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil the water and tea bags in a saucepan for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags, squeezing the excess liquid into the pan. Add the cauliflower to the saucepan. Cover and boil 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain the cauliflower, reserving 1 cup of liquid for later. In a small frying pan, sauté the onions and celery in butter until the onions are clear. Put into a blender along with the cauliflower, salt and pepper, and one cup reserved liquid. Blend until smooth, then serve. For thinner soup, reserve and add more liquid. For thicker soup, add less liquid.

Serves 4. (
