It’s always strange how quick it goes, the night comes earlier, it get earlier dark. It has some nice moments, but a human need light, especially me…
When it’s dark, it’s time to go home, play some games, eating hot soup, reading good books, watching some nice films and especially the candles are making the mood when you close the curtains.
It’s time to lock you up, to prepare for the winter-time to eat some more greasy food for the cold weather.
Time for thinking time for being a little depressed, but then when the spring is coming you are more happy then ever!! You smile more, you can rule the world, you get in love again, the smell of the nice flowers, the sun…yes the sun I like the most!!
Anyway it will take 5 months till the spring will come, so again I made some soup, this time from cauliflower, this soup is creamy and thick, good for the winter to get your stomach filled till you will explode….and to need some rest after the meal because it has to fall down in your body. Good luck with making the soup…download some nice film (did I say download ;0) for the after dinner-dip.
The ingredients for the cauliflower soup (4-6 persons)
900 gram of cauliflower, cut in little roses
2 big potatoes (like 350 gram) cut in slices
1,5 litre vegetable bouillon
1 spring onion for garnish
16 whole almonds, you will grind it your own
juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
1 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
some 4 seasoning pepper
Maybe if you have in the house (tofutti garlic and herb, of herb and chive) as a experiment
Making the white creamy soup
It’s easy, wash all the vegetables, after get the cooking pan, pour in the bouillon, the cauliflower and potatoes.
Bring it to a boil and boil for 10 till 15 minutes, it’s ready when the cauliflower and potatoes are soft.
Put the c-flower and potatoes in the food processor, grind till it’s smooth. Put back in the cooking pan, now you stir in the parsley, lemon juice and nutmeg! Put on a low fire, let not cook….Now you can roast the almonds in the frying pan, no oil only the pan fire and almonds (if you don’t have a mortar at home you can put the almonds in a plastic bag and hit them with a hammer in little pieces)
Bake the almonds till they are brown, beware suddenly it goes quickly and if you don’t watch them very well, they will get black and disgusting!
So if you have you can put in the tofutti, I didn’t try but I think it will make the soup delicious, just put in as much as you like. Anyway after this you put the soup in bowls, put on top of the soup the spring onion, cut in slices and the almonds. Sit comfortable and take care of the film after 😉
Maybe if you like you can bake some mushrooms and you can use this as garnish too, just experiment with the soup!!
Have a nice meal
