The wonderful taste of the India combined with luscious white and green, garden grown vegetables.
ABOVE: Healthy and spicy curried Cauliflower and Spinach Soup.
1 medium cauliflower
1 teaspoon Garam masala
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of turmeric
2 to 3 teaspoons of curry powder
2 cloves of garlic crushed
Half a bag of spinach leaves washed
Salt and pepper
2 pints of chicken or vegetable stock
Sweat the onion in olive oil and add all the spices. Allow these to cook out for a few minutes on a medium heat. Turn heat down to a gentle heat and add the garlic and the cauliflower and cook for a few minutes. Now add the chopped potatoes and leave to cook for a while. Season with salt and pepper and turn up heat. Now add the stock and bring to just under the boil. Turn the heat down to medium and allow to cook for 15-20 minutes and then turn down to a gentle heat. Finally add in the spinach and give it a stir into the soup. Now remove the soup from the heat - this keeps the green colour of the spinach. Whizz the soup up until smooth and season accordingly.
Pour into a bowl and drizzle a little pouring cream or a spoon of crême fraiche on top. Decorate with a pretty green leaf. Serve with homemade brown soda bread.
