There’s nothing better than a bowl of delicious homemade soup with freshly baked bread on a rainy day. Don’t know what soup to make? Try this super tasty and healthy cauliflower soup and you won’t be sorry.
Not only is this cauliflower soup really delicious, but it is also packed with nutrition. With ingredients such as garlic, ginger and paprika, the flavour will be rich and fragrant and you’ll get an extra immune boost.
What makes this soup recipe different is that the ingredients don’t immediately boil together in a pot. First, you will have to roast the cauliflower and onions in the oven. This is a very important step as the dryer heat from the oven automatically caramelises the natural sugars in the vegetables. And as a result, this then brings out an amazing flavour from each ingredient.
Chef’s Tip for cauliflower soup
If you want some extra soup that you can keep for the next rainy day, make a big batch of cauliflower soup and freeze it. This soup freezes exceptionally well and is so easy to just defrost and voila! Your meal is ready.
All about the bread
Of course, no soup is complete without freshly baked bread by its side. Any bread will still be delicious with this cauliflower soup, however, we do recommend a ciabatta loaf for the tastiest result. And if you really want to take the dish to the next level, quickly pan fry the ciabatta slices in butter and then pop some cheese on them.
