Occasionally Ochre – Lightly Curried Caulifower Soup
“How spicy you make this dish is up to you. We have erred on the milder side, but if you like things with a bit of a kick, add a little more curry powder or even a pinch of cayenne pepper,” says Atkinson.
• A few glugs of olive oil
• 1 onion, finely sliced
• 1 stick celery, finely chopped
• 1 carrot, finely chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
• 1 tsp medium curry powder
• 1 tsp garam masala
• 1kg caulifower, roughly chopped
• 300ml vegetable stock
• 1 tin coconut cream
• Salt and pepper
• 1 pinch cayenne pepper
Heat the olive oil in a pan, and add
the onion, celery and carrot. Sweat together for about 5 minutes and then add the chopped garlic. Once the onions have softened, add the spices and fry together for a few minutes more. Add
the caulifower and stir to ensure that the spices are mixed in. Let the vegetables steam together for a minute or so before adding the vegetable stock. Bring the pan to boil and then reduce to a simmer. Add the coconut cream and stir to combine. Allow the pan to simmer for about 30 minutes with the lid on. After checking
that the caulifower has cooked through, take the pan off the heat and blitz with your stick blender until smooth. Check the seasoning and adjust as required. Sprinkle on just a pinch of cayenne pepper before serving with your favourite bread.
