This is one of my favourite soups. Its smooth, filling and has lots of flavour. Believe me, dill with cauliflower … match made in heaven! :o)
I like to make extra so I can freeze it, specially during the winter season. There are always days when you come home from work uninspired to cook, its late, your hungry and want food immediately! Its nice to have something in the freezer so you can prepare quickly a tasty, healthy and nutritious dinner.
Cauliflower is nutrient rich veggie, including plenty of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytochemicals. Its also a good source of dietary fibre. World Wide Web has a lot of information about the health benefits of cauliflower, so I’m not gonna repeat it. If you want more details just dive in but you can also just include it into your weekly shopping list and start eating it regularly. It will do you a lot of good. :o) The soup is delicious to have with the nutty bread or the crisp seed bread.
1-2 tbsp. of coconut oil or ghee
1 onion chopped into small pieces
2-3 clove of garlic, chopped into small pieces
2-3 stalks of celery, cut in to pieces (optional)
1 medium head of the cauliflower, cut into florets or even smaller pieces to diminish the cooking time
2-3 tbsp. chopped dill, frozen or fresh
1 tsp of sea or Himalaya salt
2 dl coconut milk (optional)
chilli flakes if you like it spicy
Heat the oil on the pan and add the onion, sauté for few minutes on the medium heat, then add the garlic, continue an other minute or two and add water. Next the celery and cauliflower florets will go in, add some more water till the cauliflower is covered. Add salt and dill and simmer for about 15-20 min or until the cauliflower is cooked. In the end add the coconut milk and put it into the blender to puree. You can also use the stick blender but to get the silky creamy texture I suggest to use the the high speed blender. I have Magimix with a soup making function. Works wonders!
Add more salt and dill of your liking. Same goes for water, depending how thick you want your soup to be. Add a bitt of butter when serving, garnish with some chilly flakes, if you like it spicy. Feel free to add any fresh herbs you might have at home. Serve with the nutty bred or crisp seed bread.
