As the colder weather seeps in and Winter finally approaches, there are two things I have already observed…
- My electricity bill is starting to creep up
- I am craving and eating more soups
One of the best things about making homemade soups is that you typically make more than you can eat, but most freeze wonderfully and you can make a couple batches that can last you all season!
I have really been into cauliflower this year (that’s a thing, right?), so I recently made a cauliflower cream soup with roasted asparagus and toasted breadcrumbs…mmm yes.
If you were to skip the roasted asparagus and toasted breadcrumbs, this soup would be one of the easiest things you’d ever make…but you don’t want to skip those two things because they are delicious and add great color and texture to this soup!
HA, told you it was easy : )
This cauliflower cream soup is fantastical, I tell you.
Finishing the soup with a little heavy cream adds such a great richness that elevates this soup to another level. Topping it with crisped, roasted asparagus and toasted breadcrumbs add great layers of texture to the dish and they also add a salty bite that cuts through some of that richness that was created. All in all, when you put it all together it’s a great balance of flavors that warms you to the bone.
If you’re not into cauliflower this year, like me, you could easily sub in something else, like broccoli… But don’t be a fool, go with the cauliflower! Trust me.
I’ll have the recipe posted shortly, but until then… Here’s my recipe for this cauliflower cream soup, definitely give it a try this season!
