    Highland Lass's Note:

    A few years of experimentation later and I believe I got it just right - a simple yet substantial cold weather soup. For a sophisticated twist, try it with Stilton cheese and port.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In large pot over medium heat, sauté onion, celery and carrot in olive oil until onion is translucent.
    2. 2
      Add cauliflower and thyme to pot and pour in the stock.
    3. 3
      Cover and bring to boil.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat to medium and cook until cauliflower is tender.
    5. 5
      Remove pot from heat.
    6. 6
      Working in batches, puree the mixture in a food processor or blender and return to the pot (I prefer it slightly chunky).
    7. 7
      Reduce heat to low and whisk in the cream, dry mustard, Dijon and cheddar.
    8. 8
      Heat thoroughly but do not let the soup boil.
    9. 9
      If you find the soup a bit thick at this point, add a little stock or water.
    10. 10
      Add salt (if necessary) and pepper.
    11. 11
      Serve.
    12. 12
      A pleasant variation: Substitute 1 cup of thinly sliced leeks for the onion and 1 1/2 cups of crumbled Stilton for the cheddar; add 3 tablespoons of Tawny port and garnish with freshly chopped chives.

      This is a creamy, silky, yummy soup! It's perfect for those of us on a low-carb diet. I used vegetable stock and real full fat cream. Left out the carrot and used two huge onions! I pureed the soup right in the pot with an immersion blender (known in our house as The Stick). Pay close attention to Step #8, do not let the soup boil, it can burn on the bottom of your pot. This reheats beautifully in the microwave. I can't wait to try a version with chopped leeks and maybe a little smoked mozzarella.

      The addition of the mustards is a tasty one. Very nice soup.

      Delicious!! The only change I made was to add a few broccoli florets because the cauliflower I had was very small. We enjoyed this and I am looking forward to leftovers. Thanks!
