What are the tastes, that makes you think of summer? Even just the scent of it makes you smile, and think of hot summer days. For me, one of them is cauliflower. Soup made from it, was part of my childhood summers.
I wanted to make a cauliflower soup without potatoes and cream. I know, that is what everyone puts in them, but I wanted a little lighter version, so I went to my friend parsnip.
Very simple, I took one head of cauliflower, one parsnip, one leek, and cut them into a pot - remember, the smaller the cuts, the faster it will cook - and filled with fresh water until just covered. Added salt, and let them boil until done. It didn't take long at all, maybe ten, fifteen minutes, for the cuts I had in the pot.
Then I took the stick mixer, and pyré the veggies into the salted water. I added about half a cup of milk, adjusted the salt, and it was ready to be served.
I had some bacon for the top, and some greens. Simple, beautiful, and so delicious!
The amount I had, serves about four, I had a smaller size cauliflower head.
I'm a chef and a pastry chef, and I love food. Preparing a meal for someone is a show of love; for your craft, for the ingredients, and for the ones eating.
