Rockpool's Cream of Cauliflower Soup with Parmesan - Gastromony Cauliflower rocks. My kids love munching on little steamed florets of it and the classic gratin of cauliflower is a venerable side item to accompany any main meal. Unfortunately, half a head of cauli has been about $4 in the supermarkets and not a great deal cheaper at markets. I’m guessing this vege is pretty susceptible to insect infestation (who hasn’t bought a cauliflower that wasn’t home to those tiny bugs) so an edible crop gets pretty pricey. It was therefore almost a shock for me to walk into Coles last week to find a whole head of cauliflower going for $1.80. I stumbled across this Rockpool recipe for Cream of Cauliflower and Parmesan Soup on the net and it sounded delicious. The recipe has been converted for the Thermomix but the above link will give instructions for stove top. Rockpool’s Cream of Cauliflower Soup with Parmesan Ingredients Instructions
Louise’s Favorite Bone Broth or Vegetable Broth Bone broth is a wonderful way to nourish and heal your digestive tract and energize your body; it provides an easily digestible source of vitamins, minerals, and protein. If you’re vegetarian, you can leave out the bones and meat scraps and create a healing vegetable elixir to sip during the day. You can also include just bones and no vegetables, if you like. This broth can be used to sip, or used in recipes for more flavorful grains, soups, and more! Note: gather your ingredients at your own pace Take a large paper shopping bag; open and place it in one of the freezer drawers. Over the course of the week or several weeks, throw all bones and meat scraps in the bag in your freezer drawer. Add 1 or 2 (3") pieces of seaweed, like wakame or digitata, for extra minerals. Keep adding vegetable scraps, meat scraps, and bones to your bag in the freezer until it’s full and you’re ready to make your broth. Put all of the contents of the bag in your freezer into a stainless-steel stockpot.

Simple Sesame Noodles I’ll be spending the weekend cooking some new recipes and making such a mess of my kitchen I’ll want to cry and burn down the house and move. I’m really looking forward to it! In the meantime, because it’s Friday, I’m bringing this, one of my all-time favorite recipes, up to the front. It’s cool, easy, and the perfect thing to get us through the remaining days of this inferno some humans are referring to as “Summer”. Sometimes, simple is best. Often, simple is best. Most of the time, simple is best. Sesame noodles fall under that umbrella. This is a very simple recipe for yummy sesame noodles. I love them just the way they are. Start by cooking noodles. Next comes the simple sauce/dressing: 1/4 cup soy sauce. These measurements are all approximations; I almost always go in after the fact and taste, adjust, taste, adjust. I’m a rebel. Chop up 3 to 4 cloves of garlic. Now add 3 tablespoons white sugar to the soy sauce. Sweet and savory. Throw in the garlic. Rice vinegar. Add about 2 tablespoons.

Healthier Roasted Gobi Manchurian (Cauliflower in a Spicy Sauce) If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably already know that I love Indian flavors. I’ve shared recipes for classics like Dal Makhani (Indian Butter Lentils) and Lamb Tikka Masala, and I’ve also shared a few dishes remade with Indian twists, like Bloomin’ Indian-Spiced Whole Roasted Cauliflower, Indian-Spiced Roasted Potatoes, and Indian-Spiced Cream of Tomato Soup with Whole Wheat Couscous. Today I’m sharing my version of Gobi Manchurian, an Indo-Chinese fusion of battered, fried cauliflower florets in a spicy, sticky sauce that’s commonly eaten in India. I first had it when I was in undergrad school when eating a homemade Indian feast at my friend’s house. Her mom was an amazing cook and although she served many dishes that night, I still remember my first bite of Gobi Manchurian. This dish isn’t something I’ve ever seen on a menu at an Indian (or even a Chinese!) Healthier Roasted Gobi Manchurian (Cauliflower in a Spicy Sauce) Ingredients Cauliflower: Sauce: Other:
Harvest Black Bean Soup The soup is good fresh from the pot, but even better for a day or 3 or 4 in the fridge. Refrigerates up to 6 days and freezes for 4 months. A soup meant for using up those survivors of the vegetable bin turns them into prime assets when they're browned then cooked with black beans. Believe it or not, pumpkin pie spices are the making of this soup. Who knew dried beans practically light up when simmered with a generous helping of these fresh ground so-called "sweet" spices. Try it; you'll see. Cook to Cook: With each reheat, make it new with flavorings like simmered red wine and orange peel going in one night, a topping of chopped apple and onion the next, and a puree of roasted peppers and dollops of yogurt on another. Ingredients Instructions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
Caul-do Verde (Portuguese Caldo Verde with Cauliflower) recipe on Food52 Author Notes: This is a riff on the classic Portuguese Caldo Verde, a deceptively simple soup of olive oil, potatoes, Linguica sausage, and kale. I got the idea to substitute cauliflower for the potatoes from a mashed-potato alternative of cauliflower, fennel seed, and white beans my father used to make. I roast the cauliflower with smoked paprika and cumin for added depth of flavor.
