Creamy Cauliflower Soup
There are many days when I have craved a soup for lunch or dinner, but haven't had one pre-prepared on hand, so have had to put one together quickly. This creamy cauliflower soup is definitely a ‘go to’ option and due to its thick consistency, more often than not it ends up being my complete meal.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 brown onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 litre vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup coconut milk (optional)
Heat olive oil in heavy based saucepan.
Add onion and sauté for approximately 5 minutes. Add garlic and stir for a further minute
Add the remainder of the cauliflower, stock and seasoning. Stir well.
Bring soup to the boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for approximately 20 minutes until the cauliflower is soft and tender..
Remove from heat and using a hand blender, blend until smooth.
Check seasoning and add coconut milk now if using.
