Cauliflower soup with avocado cream

 

Once in a while I like to treat our bodies to a light meal. This mellow soup does the trick. It’s light, super good for you and has very well balanced mild flavors.  

Soup

  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 quart / 1 liter chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/3 cup / 80 ml cream
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  1. Cut cauliflower into pieces and put in a pot with the broth and bring to a boil.
  2. Add bay leaves and simmer over medium until tender app 15 min.
  3. Remove bay leaves and blend the soup.
  4. Add cream, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve with topping and good bread.  

Topping

  • 2 avocadoes
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1-2 tbsp chopped dill
  1. Mix the avocado cream well, season with salt and peber and add dill last.

Suggestions

Substitute half or all of the cauliflower with broccoli. Try another herb. Add bacon bits, if you need meat to complete your meal. Also good as an appetizer.

    Har sandelig lidt svært ved “oversættelserne” ( dog ikke hentet leksikon, men responderer for hyggens skyld).
    Cauliflower?
    Chikenbroth – quart el 1 liter? Er det kyllingefond og hvor meget?
    Bay leaves?
    Knus far

  2. Cauliflower is blomkål in Danish and bay leave is laurbærblad. 1 quart is equivalent to 1 liter. Yes, chickenbroth is kyllingefond. You can also use water and chicken bouillon. Hope that helps :-) Bonne appetit!

    I just made this delicious cauliflowersoup for the second time this month. I served it with shrimps, small spinach leaves and sour cream on the top. I also use the soup (only ½ liter broth) as sauce to a dish with white fish.
    Thank you again for your inspiration :-)
    Love mum

  4. What a feast! I love to hear that you are making the recipe your own and finding other ways to use it.
    (Nyt liv til fiskesymfonien – hurra :-))
