cauliflower soup 2I had some cauliflower in the fridge which needed to be used so after reading over a few recipes on Google I decided to try to create something wonderful. And it worked! Here is the goodness..

Prep: 10 minutes — Cooking: 20 min (including fussing about with mixers) — Serves: 4-6

cauliflower soup 3

chopped cauli, frying onions (1), flavours (3), chicken additions (6)


1 onion, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 tbsp oil

½ head cauliflower (about 1kg), chopped into small pieces (including the stem bits)
2c chicken stock
Nutmeg and S+P to taste

1c blue (full) milk
6 slices salami, medium diced and lightly fried if desired

(2) If you cook it with the lid on, the stock doesn’t need to cover the cauli.


1. Slowly cook the onion and garlic in oil until tender.

2. Add the cauliflower and chicken stock and bring to the boil then reduce to medium heat.

3. Cook until the cauliflower is tender – about ten minutes, adding spices to taste.

4. Whizz with a mixer until your desired consistency is reached. I had mine relatively smooth but still with little bumps, mostly just because my chopper doesn’t completely liquefy things. Be sure to cover the mixer with a tea towel because the soup will burst out and is hot.

5. Put the soup back on the stove on a very low heat and add the milk and salami. Stir frequently to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

6. When it is as warm as you would like then serve and enjoy. Pair with Moroccan fried chicken for extra yumness.
