Its good to be back on the farm after the most amazing trip to Prague.
Although the days have been lovely and mild without any wind, the nights are getting cooler and I've finally pulled out the winter duvet…another great way to get through the long nights is to tuck into steaming bowls of hearty soup.
To make this delicious cauliflower soup you'll need:
300g cauliflower, washed.
1 chicken stock cube,
1 C boiling water,
1 generous C milk,
150g extra mature cheddar, grated,
Salt and pepper
2 rashers crispy bacon, chopped,
Roughly chop the cauliflower and throw into a pot along with the stock dissolved in boiling water.
Allow to simmer and add the milk.
Simmer until the cauliflower is cooked through.
Add a generous splash of Tabasco, salt and pepper.
Use a stick blender to blend until smooth.
Return to the stove and throw in the grated cheddar, stirring until it has melted.
Dish up generous portions and sprinkle with bacon bits, drizzle over a little fresh cream and truffle oil.
Serve with fresh crusty bread and butter...
Snuggle up on the couch in front of a roaring fire and enjoy.
