Cauliflower is nothing but a cabbage with a college education.
~ Mark Twain
This week’s soup was a very simple soup to prepare. You take one head of cauliflower (I used an orange or “cheddar” cauliflower), cut it into florets, and drop the florets into 2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth. Add one roughly chopped onion and three tablespoons of walnut pieces (or you can wait until the cauliflower is cooked before adding the walnuts; I prefer to cook the nuts because it’s easier on my gut). Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the cauliflower is cooked. Add two cups of half & half or milk, and salt and pepper to taste. Using an immersion blender, puree it until it is smooth and creamy, reheat, and when it is nice and hot, serve the soup with a sprinkling of paprika. You can also garnish it with toasted walnuts.
I would like to try this again using coconut milk and Thai curry paste. I think the flavor combinations would work well. Out of curiosity, I just went in search of a Thai cauliflower soup recipe and found this: Curried Cauliflower Soup. It sounds so yummy that it might be next Sunday’s soup.
I’m sorry I missed our coffee chat yesterday. It was a busy, busy day. Maybe we’ll meander tomorrow. In the meantime, thank you for stopping by for Souper Sunday. I hope all is well with you.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
