It’s that cauliflower time of the year!

Let me share a couple of fantastic cauliflower recipes! One really healthy and one not so!

I’m cooking a dinner tonight for couple that won “a dinner cooked by me in their own home” at a charity auction. The menu begins with,

Roasted cauliflower soup

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • Sea Salt2 onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled crushed
  • 2 litres of vegetable stock
  • 250 ml cream or milk

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
Bring a pot of lightly salted water to the boil and drop in your cauliflower (look at blanching on Kiwi Living) remove after 1 minute and place onto a roasting tray. Sprinkle with oil and sea salt and roast for 15 minutes or until tender.

Heat a pot and add oil and gently fry onions and garlic, add roasted cauliflower and stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

Using a blender or stick blender, blend the soup and add the cream. Season

Serve with a little truffle oil if you really want to blow your mind!
