Jolly Cauli...

"January, sick and  tired, you've been hanging on me...."

Brrrrr... January the longest and most unrelenting winter month and what with Christmas and New Year festivities at one end and for some of us at least massive half yearly tax bills at the other, it can also a be a fiscally challenged one to boot!  So maybe it's time to start thinking about pulling out some low cost winter warmers if you'll pardon the expression!! Try Ghaz's delicious quick and easy spiced cauliflower soup.


1 Large cauliflower head
1 large white onion
1 large cooked potato in chunks
4 Cloves Garlic
4 Bayleaves
1 Litre chicken or vegetable stock
Half litre milk or soy milk
Half Tbsp chilli flakes
Splash Olive oil
Saffron or turmeric
Salt and Pepper

Garnish ( Optional)
Cooked Chorizo and cauliflower slices
Cayenne pepper


Chop onions and garlic, fry onions and add garlic and bay leaves when onion is soft and translucent. Chop cauliflower and add with two pinches of saffron or turmeric. Lower to medium heat and allow to cook for 5 to 10 minutes. Add potato and simmer for a further 15 minutes or until all vegetables are soft. Add the milk and simmer again for 5 minutes. For a creamy texture use a hand blender as required. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with the chorizo, thinly sliced and griddled cauliflower and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and olive oil drizzle.
