Simple Cauliflower Soup
I must say, I've never been a huge fan of cauliflower. Then again, I've never despised it. To me it was just...a vegetable. I had ended up using half for a saute and I had no clue what to do with the other half. I decided to make a very simple cauliflower soup. While making this I had recalled two of my guy friends proudly talking to me about how they made their cauliflower soup. I don't think there's a set way to making it to begin with.
Considering I had winged this recipe there will be no exact measurements involved.
3/4 yellow onion
1 green onion
16 ounces (1 lb) veggie stock
a dash of milk (which can be replaced w/ half an half or heavy cream...OR you can have the choice to not use the milk at all)....
While I waited for the oil to get hot in the pot, I had diced the onion, cleaned and took apart the florets of the cauliflower. Once the oil was hot I threw in the onions until they turned iridescent. I poured in the veggie stock and the florets...While they were cooking I diced and chopped the green onion. Once it had appeared that the florets were cooked through, I had poured everything into the blender...And eyed out how much more milk I would add to the mix. I blended it to my taste...Then poured everything back onto the pot to reheat a bit.
Comfort in a bowl.
