I’m always looking for new ideas for making my menu fun, yet simple and tasty too. It’s been much chillier this week and what better way to warm you up than by having a yummy soup – this Cauliflower Soup is just the thing!

Good for a quick lunch, or just as a warming snack.

This soup is so easy and tasty!

Once you’ve perfected the basic concept, which couldn’t be easier, you can dress it up with all kinds of condiments, eg a pinch of blue cheese, chives and olive oil, or truffle oil/salt. There are so many possibilities!

This soup can be made vegan or vegetarian (if you’re okay with dairy add the butter!). It’s naturally gluten free, low carb, low calorie, creamy, filling and amazing.

It takes 10 minutes and will give you approx. 4 servings.

Method:

  1. Remove the leaves and tough core from the cauliflower.
  2. Chop into small florets and carefully clean them.
  3. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 quart (4 cups) of water to a boil.
  4. Stir in 2 tsp of salt till dissolved.
  5. Pour in the cauliflower florets.
  6. Bring the water back to a boil and cover.
  7. Let the cauliflower cook for about 5 minutes till very soft and tender.
  8. Remove the florets from their cooking water using a slotted spoon; reserve the salted cooking water.
  9. Place the cooked cauliflower into a blender, filling it halfway.
  10. Carefully pour in cooking water, adding till it reaches about halfway up the cooked cauliflower.
  11. Cover the blender carefully and blend, scraping the sides as needed, until the soup becomes a smooth puree. You may need to add more cooking water to achieve a soup-like texture. The longer you blend, the more silky and smooth the soup becomes.
  12. Add salt, pepper, and butter to taste. (Recommend approx. 1 tablespoon of butter for a whole head of cauliflower (1/2 tablespoon per batch)).
  13. Repeat process with the remaining batch of cauliflower.
  14. Serve soup hot.

Note:

Leftovers will keep for 1-2 days in a covered tupperware container; soup will need to be stirred after reheating.
