Preparation of the cauliflower soup

  1. Peel an onion and slice it thinly, then brown it in a saucepan with a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Add the cauliflower cut into small pieces and the potatoes cut into small cubes, stir and cook for 2 minutes over low heat.
  3. Cover with the broth and cook until the vegetables are nice and soft .
  4. Salt and pepper, and once the consistency is the right one, blend until you have obtained a nice thick and soft cream.

If, on the other hand, you want a rustic cauliflower soup, leave it as it is, without blending it. However, we warn you: if you propose it to children they could turn up their noses at the sight of the “pieces”.

Cream of cauliflower: the variants

Now let’s see how to enrich our dish with taste. Let’s start with the caramelized onions: cut an onion into wedges and put it in a pan with oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and brown sugar. Mix well and cook over low heat until the onions are soft. Serve the soup by adding the onions on top.

The combination seems risky, but we also suggest you try to flavor it with a few cubes of apple: it will give the dish a fresh and crunchy note . Really gourmet!

If you don’t have them, you can prepare the cauliflower soup without potatoes, but consider that the taste of the cauliflower will be much more intense .

And finally, for a special contrast of flavor and crunchiness, add some speck browned separately : you won’t regret it!
