Cauliflower Soup

    35 min

    A creamy vegetable soup for a cold winter night. The thickness of the soup is determined by the ratio of cauliflower to water. Because cauliflowers are all different sizes, add stock or milk if the soup is too thick.

    I have just finished my first bowl of this soup, and I love it! It's delicious. I didn't have any spring onions, so just used a normal onion, also, I used homemade chicken stock in place of water. Those were the only changes I made. Will definitely make this one again!  -  06 Jul 2012

    Loved it. With a slight twist, used 3 shallots instead of spring onions, added a veg stock cube, a cupful of frozen petits pois and finished off with a spoonful of crème fraiche.  -  25 Jan 2016
