I'm not mad about blue cheese, but this worked really well. Made this because they were selling large heads of cauli for $2 each....and this is really easy

Ingredients

1 large cauliflower head - cut into florets
1 brown onion - chopped
couple stalks of celery - chopped
2 cloves garlic - peeled and crushed
1 -2 potatoes - peeled and diced

large handful fresh parsley
1/2 tsp of thyme

1-2 L water - enough to just cover
1/2 cup verjuice if white wine (optional) - otherwise, juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup milk - if you want a thicker soup, reduce the water (or if you want a richer consistency, use cream)
1/4 -1/2 cup blue cheese - crumbled or substitute with feta, cheddar or other strong tasting cheese
salt and pepper to taste


1. Saute onion and celery. Add garlic.
2. Deglaze with wine or verjuice (or lemon)
3. Add cauli, potato, herbs and water to just cover.
4. Simmer until potato and cauli is tender.
5. Puree soup. Add cream/ milk.
6. Turn off heat and stir in cheese at the end.

viv,
what a lovely recipe! I'd love to try since we are unable to finish up the cauliflower which always ended up in the garbage...grrr. But I don't have a taste for blue cheese, may try feta and let you know the result Wink

We always have cauli left over too. I've edited the recipe to include other options of cheese!

viv, it's very delicious. I skipped garlic, celery and parsley. I used bay leaves. The only liquid I put in was milk, the cheese was grate parmigiano reggiano.

Delicious soup, much better with white wine. Made mine with extra creamy blue cheese. Thanks viv.
