Cauliflower Soup Recipe

Cauliflower is an underrated vegetable. Not only is it delicious as Cauliflower cheese and piccalilli, but it makes surprisingly good soup too. I made my own Christmas Piccalilli this week, which resulted in a lot of leftover cauliflower soup and stem. Rather than throw them in the bin, I used them instead in this modified cauliflower soup recipe.
Homemade Cauliflower Soup

This recipe makes enough for two large, or four small portions of soup. It's a great way to warm up after a cold winters walk, and is simple to make.


  • The stems and stalk of one large cauliflower, chopped
  • Half and onion
  • I/4 pint milk
  • 1/4 pint water
  • 1/2 pint stock ( I used chicken but vegetable would work too)

What can you make with Cauliflower stalk? Soup!

  1. Place the ingredients in a medium sauce pan and simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes
  2. When the cauliflower is soft the cooking is complete
  3. Season with nutmeg and salt
  4. Pour ingredients into blender and blitz.
  5. For extra smoothness strain the soup.

If you like blue cheese, this a great recipe to add a sprinkling on top. If you're not a fan of blue cheese, this soup tastes delicious with a dash of truffle oil.

Little Bloom- Cloth Nappy reviews

If you are a newbie in cloth its hard to know what to buy. I've been using  Cloth Nappies  for 16 months with my first born, and am preparing to have two in cloth when my daughter arrives in May. You could say I'm somewhat of cloth nappy pro. I've moved on from my start up stash, and invest in nappies that will see us through til froggy potty trains, and ideally ones his baby sister can use afterwards too! Pocket nappies are great for this purpose and this week I'm reviewing the little bloom nappies You can grab little bloom nappies on  amazon  from as little as £2.89 delivered. So they are a cheap option but are they cheerful enough to do the job?

Starting our kitchen garden

Growing our own food has been an ambition of my husband and I. We both really value locally sourced produce,  and enjoy spending time outdoors.  In our first home together (a basement flat in the city centre) we planted anything and everything we could in planters on the windowsill.   I had green beans trailing up the bars of our windows. They bolted and twirled up the bars but never got enough light  to produce anything edible. Then we moved into our first pub which had masses of outdoor space, unfortunately,  all car park and no dirt. We managed to sustain some hanging baskets with strawberries and a few herb planters, but that was about it.  Now we are in our new home.  A lovely country pub in the new forest, whiich offers a private garden just for our little family.  We moved here when I was 8 months pregnants and ever since, I've been desperate to make the most of it.  Since the new year we've been planning what to do with this neglected space.  I found this
