They are like pretty flowers!

Cauli-flowers that is! How gorgeous is this?! I was planning on roasting them but decided I wanted a little soup instead. Of course you can use regular white cauliflower, but this mix gave the soup a nice buttery yellow color. My mom always served this soup with some cooked and crumbled Jimmy Dean sausage on top - wish I had some today - had to make do with crumbled bacon.

Easy Cauliflower Soup serves 2

1/2 onion chopped
couple small heads of cauliflower (these were babies!)
1 small potato
olive oil
couple cups whole milk

Saute the onion in some olive oil. Add the chopped cauliflower and potato and cover with milk. Cook covered about 25 min, or until soft. Puree in a blender or use a hand held blender - leave a little chunky. Add more milk if too thick, taste and s&p. Serve topped with cooked ground sausage or bacon.


  1. Where do you find those colored ones?

  2. I got them at this little roadside pay on the honor system place here in Healdsburg called Love Farms.
