Cauliflower soup

Starter Serves 4 15 min
A quick and delicious vegetarian way to make the most of this often maligned vegetable. You could whiz it up, but the chunks of cauliflower give it a nice texture. This is great as a starter, or as a main with warm, crusty bread.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 30g butter
  • 1 cauliflower, divided into small florets
  • 150ml milk
  • truffle oil (optional)


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 10 min
  • Step 1

    Gently fry the onion in the oil and butter until soft. Add the cauliflower florets, mix well then add the milk. Cover and simmer until tender. Whizz to a purée in a food processor.
  • Step 2

    At this point you can serve it as a soup: return to the pan, thin with a little more milk, season to taste and serve each bowlful with some truffle oil (optional) drizzled on top, or you can serve the purée as a base for a piece of roasted white fish, surrounded by cooked Puy lentils.
