This is a soup I have been making for a while thanks to my lovely Mum who first gave me her recipe. This is now the recipe I generally follow after tinkering with it a little and I absolutely love it. Thick, creamy and flavoursome, perfect for this chilly winter weather. Cauliflower is one of my favourite vegetables so it is great to find another way to cook it.
One cauliflower head cut into florets
I onion, diced
1 leek, thinly sliced
1 medium potato, chopped into small chunks
1 litre vegetable stock
1 packet of garlic soft cheese (I like to use Boursin or a similar alternative)
1 – Cook the onions until soft
2 – Put the leek, potato, onions and stock into a saucepan and cook for 10 – 15 minutes
3 – Add the cauliflower and cook for a further 10 minutes
4 – Blend the vegetables in the pan. I use a hand blender but you could transfer the contents of your saucepan to a blender at this point
5 – Stir in the garlic soft cheese allowing a few chunks to remain
6 – Serve with fresh, warm bread
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do, it is definitely one of my favourite soups to make and eat. And warm, fresh bread is what I like to serve with most soup but your preference is up to you! Let me know how you find this one in the comments below and let me know what your favourite soup is too. I have some more soup recipes to share and would love to know what you would like to see next!
