Cauliflower & cheddar Cheese Soup

Cauliflower & cheddar Cheese Soup

This is a classic combination of flavours. This is quite a filling soup recipe so a little goes a long way. For a varied flavour why not try adding in a little curry powder when cooking the soup for a mild curried alternative or go bolder and add some blue cheese.

Ingredients
  

  • 50 g butter
  • 1 large onion chopped roughly
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 large head cauliflower chopped
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 150 ml cream
  • 150 g cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions
 

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan and add in the chopped onion and garlic.
  • Sweat the vegetables off for approximately 2 minutes over a gentle heat until they are softened down. Add in the cauliflower pieces, the chopped potatoes and continue to cook a further moment or two. Season the mixture lightly at this stage.
  • Now pour in the warm chicken stock and the cream and allow the entire mixture to come to the boil. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes until the vegetables have softened.
  • Remove from the heat, stir in half of the cheese and blend the soup with a hand blender adding additional stock if you desire. Correct the seasoning of the soup and reheat it gently.
  • Serve the soup garnished with some additional crumble of cheese on top.
