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.

I hope you enjoy the recipe. 🙂 Makes 2 servings. INGREDIENTS Coconut oil – 2 tbsps Onion – 1, chopped Garlic cloves – 3, chopped Cauliflower – 1/2, broken into small pieces Potato – 1, small, chopped Chicken …

When you walk into the kitchen, you can see the steam is rising from the soup, cloud the air above the bowl…and mixed with the aroma of the bread just came out of the oven…. Well, I really love that. However, the winter in Brisbane is not that cold. Still, soup is my favorite dish in the winter. I made the roasted sweet potato (kumara) and capsicum soup today for lunch. Here is the recipe.
