1 L water
1 chicken stock cube
200 single cream

several sprigs fresh herbs, washed
30 g ground pistachios
2 tbsp hazelnut oil
1Remove and discard the cauliflower leaves. Wash, and remove the florets, putting a few small ones aside for garnish. Cut the shallots in halves, and place in the metal bowl with the cauliflower, butter, water, and stock cube; season to taste. Run the CREAMED SOUP programme.

Great recipe! Whole family loved it. I added button mushroom towards the end. One of my children kept on begging to finish it. :)

This is my favourite recipe so far. I threw the herbs into the bowl. Obviously it affects the colour... But the flavour is beautiful. I ditched the pistachios and hazelnut oil. Just too easy.

Easy and yummy soup. I used double cream and add some Parmesan cheese.

Lovely, and just too easy. Was just making it for a quick lunch so didn't do the lo eater but did add a dash of truffle oil at the end.

Great recipe. Only thing I added was a very light pinch of tumeric to give it a better color. Otherwise it was super!
