Cauliflower soup

If anyone has ever been round the markets in Turkey you’ll know that we have some exceptionally large vegetables. A cauliflower is cheap but big enough to feed about 10 people. So soup it is……..

For 8 people

A kilo of cauliflower
A large onion
3 large potatoes
6 large cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon cummin
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons of sugar
Good shake of black pepper
2 knor chicken stock cubes
Olive oil or butter for starting it off.

Peel and chop the onion and garlic.
Fry in oil until the onions are clear and then add the sugar and spices
When the smell is filling the kitchen add the potato and coat with the mixture. Add the cauliflower. Boiling water and 2 stock cubes.
Stir well, bring to boil and simmer until the potatoes and cauliflower are soft.

I do mine in the pressure cooker and it takes about 30 minutes.

Leave to cool for 10 minutes then using a hand held blender purée the vegetables. Mix well and serve with fresh bread.
