Cream of Cauliflower Soup with Saffron

Saturday, 04 January 2014 09:19  by Jessica W.

This quick and easy soup has a short ingredients list and can be made a day ahead of time for an instant meal when needed. Saffron has a warming flavor and lends beautiful color to the soup. The cauliflower base is high in vitamin C, folate, fiber, anti-inflammatory antioxidants and many other important nutrients. This soup is a tasty way to start the year off right!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups low-salt chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely crumbled saffron threads
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 ½ pounds cauliflower, cut into ½- to ¾-inch pieces
  • ¾ cup half and half
  • Thinly sliced fresh chives

Preparation:

  1. Combine 2 cups water and 2 cups low-salt chicken broth in medium saucepan.
  2. Bring mixture to a simmer.
  3. Remove from heat and add saffron threads.
  4. Cover and steep 20 minutes.
  5. Melt butter in heavy medium pot over medium-low heat.
  6. Add chopped onions and sauté until very tender but not brown, about 10 minutes.
  7. Add cauliflower pieces; stir to coat.
  8. Add saffron broth.
  9. Bring to a simmer over high heat.
  10. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until cauliflower pieces are tender, about 20 minutes.
  11. Working in batches, puree cauliflower mixture in a food processor until smooth.
  12. Transfer puree to a large saucepan.
  13. Stir in half and half; bring to a simmer.
  14. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  15. Ladle soup into bowls.
  16. Garnish with sliced fresh chives and serve.
