Comment from Kate
Yum, yum, yum. I am a major soup fan, I know that sounds funny but ever since my mother in law showed me how easy it was to make soup, I can’t get enough of this fresh delicious meal.
I never use cauliflower because as a side vegetable I always think that it is rather bland and a bit of a waste of time. But I can imagine it tastes delicious in a soup. It would make it lovely and thick.
I might add some paprika to pep it up a little as I like spicy soup.
I often do a similar recipe using broccoli as I this is similar to cauliflower for me but I liked to use it because I like to make sure I get a variety of vegetables in my diet. It’s a great way to top up your vegetable in take which is something a lot more people need to do. So soup recipes like these are a real godsend.
Don’t forget soups can be enjoyed all year round.
