Cauliflower Soup

I confessed my secret passion for cauliflowers
a long, long time ago.

I have not mentioned them since.

Sometimes love must remain unspoken.


This post was the first time
that Ali commented on my blog.

I can still remember laughing out loud as I read it.

She has been a friend ever since.


  1. This other Ali also loves cauliflower - but I like it only slightly cooked.....have never tried it as soup. Maybe I should.

  2. No, no, no. Cauliflower as soup is just wrong; now risotto on the other hand ...

  3. Oh, we do pasta with cauliflower and we all LOVE it.
    The many lives of cauliflower.

  4. I see Paola has a blogger symbol - is she getting closer to having a blog?

    I adore with all my heart cauliflower cheese..

  5. I adore cauliflower, but have never tried cauliflower soup. Yum. I think I just need to come over and copy out your entire recipe book!

  6. We all love cauliflower here - reminds me I haven't made soup from it for ages. I'm fasinated, too by romanesque - that lovely geometric pattern!

  7. Hooray for cauliflowers and for friendship.

  8. I am an unapologetic cauliflower lover. Everything from spicy soup, smooth puree, crunchy stir-fried cauli. All except cauliflower cheese - I can't bear to see my beloved cauliflower smothered with cheese sauce.

  9. I would love to try cauliflower soup! One of my recent discoveries is the MFK Fisher non-recipe for cauliflower, which is basically cream, gruyere and cauliflower, baked. (I also butter the baking dish first, because I think Fisher just forgot to mention it.) Everyone loves this dish, and there is nothing to it...that's my kind of cooking!


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
