Had this in a cafe recently - was so yummy! Would love to try to make it - I prefer recipes to have either no or very little cream (gives me a tummy ache) and the only ones I could find in my books had cream. Thanks in anticipation :)

I do a cauliflower and blue cheese which is very nice.

I do a nice one based on the Engine Room cookbook version. This doesn't have cream unless you want to add it as a garnish -

This one is so simple, yet delicious, you don't even need stock

Add a 1 teasp ground cumin and 1 teasp curry powder to 2 cloves chopped garlic and i large chopped onion and fry in a little olive oil until onion softens. Add 1 chopped cauliflower and 1 chopped potato and stir. Add 1 litre of vege or chicken stock and cook until veges soft. Process in a liquidizer or with a stick blenderr until smooth, season with S & P to taste. Add enough milk to make to thin, add chopped parsley and serve with toast or a bread roll. You can add ceam instead of milk if prefered. Sometimes I add some chopped spinach before adding the milk and heat through.

the best ive ever had was an old Australian womans weekly recipe, it was pretty much your onion softened in butter, add flour for a roux, stock and cauli and then blitz and add cream to finish

Cauliflower and Blue Cheese is called Creme du Barry and is fabulous and easy to make - I dont use cream

What's a good blue cheese to use for this? Considering making it this week.

1Tbsp olive oil
1 Onion chopped
1 garlic clove thinly sliced or 1tsp mince garlic
500g cauliflower (round about half a head)
1 carrot roughly chopped
3 cups chicken or vege stock
400g can cannellini beans drained and rinsed

1. Heat oil in a large saucepan on medium hat. Saute onion and garlic for 4-5mins until tender
2. Add cauliflower and carrot to pan. Cover with stock. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for 15-20mins until tender.
3. Stir beans through. Using a hand blender process until smooth. Season to taste.
4. Serve topped with parsley.

This soup is really yum and easy to make, it has a lovely creamy texture thanks to the beans. Definitely worth a try this one. Think I got this from a womans weekly type mag.

I roast the cauliflower first, until golden. It gives a nicer flavour to the soup imho.

Had Cauliflower and bacon soup for dinner tonight. Basically softened onions, bacon (about 4 slices chopped then cooked with onion), chicken stock (about 1 litre) and half a cauliflower. Cook. Blitz. Yum. (Adjust stock for thickness). Very very easy.
