Cauliflower Miso Soup

I love cauliflower. It is probably one of my favourite vegetables. The best thing about cauliflower is that it is so easy to cook. Sometimes, I just break the head into small pieces and cook it with some butter. Once it’s cooked, season with salt and fresh ground black pepper. it’s just delicious!

Today’s recipe is a simple cauliflower soup with miso paste. If you like creamy soup, you will like this one. There are many ways of making a cauliflower soup. You can make it with blue cheese if you like  a strong flavour. The thickened cream or yoghurt will make it creamier. You can also cook it with potatoes or carrots.

Personally, I think cauliflower soup goes well with many different spices/herbs. I have tried coriander, parsley, paprika, and cumin seeds. I use oregano for today’s recipe.
