Yesterday was a bit of a failed cookery day. Initially I was meant to make treacle scones, but was over enthusiastic with the black treacle and instead of a dough ended up with a cake-style mix so made some odd looking cup cakes. Then for tea I made saffron rice with chicken and peppers, Hubbie really liked it, but I thought it was tasteless and boring. I’ve promised hubbie that tonights tea will be tried and tested homemade beef burgers!
Today it’s quite cold and surprise, surprise it’s raining. This calls for good old soup with huge wedges of bread & butter.
Cauliflower cheese soup
knob of butter
1 onion finely chopped
1 potato, cut into chunks
500ml vegetable stock
100g mature cheese
1) Heat butter in large saucepan and cook onoin until softened. Add cauliflower, potato, stock milk and seasoning. Bring to boil and simmer for 30 min until cauliflower & potato is beginning to fall apart.
2) Mash with potato masher (or blitz if you don’t like bits) stir in cheese and serve.
