Over the winter I have soup for lunch most days. I like make a few different soups and freeze them so that I don’t get bored having the same one every day. Last week I made cauliflower and almond which is really so easy and tasty. All you need is a cauliflower, an onion, vegetable stock and some almonds. You can even use ground almonds if it’s all you have but they give a slightly different texture. Begin by sweating the onion in a little oil (or butter) until it’s soft but not coloured then add the chopped cauliflower – don’t forget to include the stalk – almonds and enough vegetable stock to cover. I don’t weigh the almonds, a handful is probably enough. Obviously if you have a very large cauliflower you might want to add a few more. All that’s left to do is bring the soup to the boil then simmer until the cauliflower is tender, adjust the seasoning and blitz (stick blender, food processor – whatever you have). Voilà! Lunch is ready!
And some homemade bread too! Yum!
