Cauliflower and Nutmeg Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chickee

From Australian Good Taste June 2010, page 121. The size of cauliflower is not specified but I used one which was 900g trimmed, and I found I had to simmer it a little longer to get the right consistency. You can also use vegetable stock for a vegetarian recipe.

Very good. Yes, omit the water.
