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?
