The other half was used to make our dinner for tonight. Since it has become cooler, I am feeling very cold. Back to a warm pair of socks and a sweater to keep me warm. Another favorite way to keep warm is a hot bowl of soup! One of my favorite pastimes in making soup so I wanted to share this Scandinavian Cauliflower soup with you.
Cut up your cauliflower into flowerlets.
Also add the cauliflower and bring back to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover for approximately 20 minutes. The cauliflower must be soft and tender so this time may vary. Check it on and off by pricking with a fork.
Once tender, blend the mixture together. Do not drain the bouillon before blending. As you see, I use a hand stickblender but you can use a regular blender for this also.
Make a simple rue by melting two tablespoons of butter (30 gram) and stirring in two tablespoons of flour (30 gram) until it is smooth and bubbly. Gradually add a cup of water (250ml) to the mixture. Let it come to a boil stirring constantly.
Add the rue to your blended cauliflower and allow to heat to a boil. Salt and pepper the soup to taste. I use freshly ground pepper and sea salt.
Finally, pour in one cup of low fat half and half (250ml gemengd koffiemelk met halfvolle melk). Once again allow to heat up to (but not) boil. Serve in a bowl with grated nutmeg and your soup is ready! Eat this soup with a chunky bread as it is wonderful dipped in the soup.
Cauliflower soup is delicious served hot or cold. A perfect thing to make up and serve at a picnic!
