Grilled Cauliflower and Cheese Soup

Grilled Cauliflower and Cheese Soup


In a large saucepan heat the oil and stir in the onion and cauliflower, garlic and rosemary. Cook, stirring, for at least 10 mins or until the onion is very soft and a golden colour.

Stir in the flour, milk and chicken stock. Season and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer gently for about 30 -35 min or until the cauliflower is very soft.

Cool the soup a little then puree in a blender or processor. Return the soup to the rinsed pan and reheat gently. Dilute, if necessary, with a little extra stock and correct the seasoning.

Turn the grill on to high. Place the bowls in a roasting tin. Stir 50g grated hard cheese into the soup and ladle into shallow heatproof soup bowls (the bowls need to be quite full). Sprinkle the reserved cheese and a little paprika over the soup.

Boil a kettle of water and pour the hot water into the roasting tin around the base of the bowls to make a bain-maire. Using oven gloves, carefully lift the roasting pan under the grill and cook for about 5-10 min or until the tops are golden and bubbling. Carefully remove the roasting tin from the grill and lift the bowls out. Gently wipe dry and garnish with rocket. Serve the soup with warm soda bread or freshly made cheese scones.

From when I did it last time, Raquel, I it took more than one week to really noctie it. On Monday I lined up the things I wanted to use this week along the front of my pantry shelf at eye-level, so that they're there staring at me everytime I open the pantry door This week hasn't gone so well for us, meal planning wise! Hubby had a migraine one night whilst out, so didn't cook what I'd planned because didn't know if I'd need to stop what I was doing to go and pick him up, then tonight I ducked out and got stranded in hail storm so was going to miss gym if I cooked. I did manage to use up a tin of salmon and a tin of corn on monday night though, and pineapple and beetroot today for lunches. Might cook tomorrow afterall Has yourhubby been involved in trying to get rid of the pantry stuffs too, with his cooking??
