Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 Yellow onions, chopped
  • 2 Cauliflowers, cut into florets
  • 4 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1000ml Vegetable stock
  • Β½ Cup of chorizo, chopped
  • 4 Large slices of crusty bread
  • ΒΌ Cup cream
  • Small bunch of parsley, chopped

Instructions

    1. Heat 2 Tbsp. of olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion along with a pinch of salt. Cook until soft, about 6 minutes.
    2. Then put the cauliflower florets and 2 crushed garlic cloves into the pot. Give everything a good stir and then pour the stock in. Cook for 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender.
    3. Meanwhile, peel the chorizo, then chop into small pieces. Toast the bread, then cut into crouton-sized pieces.
    4. Heat the remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a frying pan, add the chorizo and fry until crisp. Then put the bread and remaining 2 garlic cloves into the pan and cook for a minute or so until everything is nicely coated in the chorizo oils. Set aside.
    5. Using my Ninja Blender, blitz the soup and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the cream to the pot and stir. Reheat if necessary.
    6. Mix the chopped parsley with the chorizo and croutons. Top the soup when its ready to serve with the chorizo and garlic bread mixture on top.

Notes

NINJA BLENDER
I have linked the blender I use in this blog post because I seriously believe that it is the best lower cost blender around. I got it for Christmas last year and it really does the job well for under $100. I make giant protein smoothies with frozen fruit, blend up soups and sauces, crush nuts for crusts, grind down oats for flour, make juices (without a juicer!) and so much more that I probably don't even know about yet. Its compact making it apartment/small space friendly and it comes with different sized blending bottles. Enjoy my friends - this appliance is a keeper!!!!
