Creamy Cauliflower Soup (255 calories per serve)


This is one of my favourite soups and was one of the earliest recipes I posted when I first started this blog. My original recipe had chorizo and some browned cauliflower florets on top as well. But as time went on, I found myself only sticking to the basic cauliflower soup without many toppings. It’s a soup I make regularly as an entree or side. So I decided to re-post with new pictures so it doesn’t get lost in the archives because it’s really such a wonderful soup.

It’s also much easier to make in a Thermomix, if you have one, which halves the time taken.

Serves 4

Prep time 20 mins
Cook time 30 mins

Ingredients
1 onion, sliced
20g butter
1/2 cauliflower, cut into florets
1 medium potato, cut into 2cm pieces
300ml light thickened cream
200ml water
1 vegetable stock cube
1 sprig parsley

Melt the butter in a pot and fry the onions until they soften a little. Then add the cauliflower, potatoes, thickened cream, vegetable stock and water.

Bring to the boil and let it simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes and cauliflower have softened.

Purée the soup using a stick blender or food processor until smooth and consistent. Sometimes I run it through a sieve to get a smoother consistency.

Garnish with parsley and serve. Alternatively, you can also try topping with chorizo and browned cauliflower florets.
