Cauliflower Cheese Soup
If you like cauliflower cheese you will love this delicious warming soup. It's very filling, so makes an ideal mid-week main course accompanied by hot buttered toast.
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 large cauliflower
1 tablespoon grain mustard
900 ml boiling water
50 ml double cream
50 g (2oz) grated cheddar cheese
Fresh flat leaf parsley to garnish
Heat the butter in a large pan. Add the onion and the garlic and leave on a medium heat for 2 - 3 minutes, until they are soft and clear.
Whilst the onion and garlic are softening, chop the cauliflower as fine as possible. Add the cauliflower into the onion mix then stir in the boiling water. Bring back to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes. Stir the soup well and add the grain mustard and the grated cheese. Adjust seasoning to taste.
Blend the soup with the cream in a liquidiser.
Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped parsley.
