Ingredients

4 cups cauliflower, cut into florets   650 g
2 3/4 cups chicken broth, low-sodium   700 mL
1/3 cup dairy blend 5%   85 mL
4 tbsp chives, fresh, chopped   12 g
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the cauliflower: cut it into large florets and boil it 10 min, at which point the cauliflower will be three-quarter cooked, i.e. firmer than al dente.
  2. Drain it and put it back into the pot. Pour the warm broth over the cauliflower (just enough to cover it). Simmer 8-10 min, until the cauliflower is soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Purée the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth. Transfer the soup to a container, cover and chill thoroughly, at least 2 h before serving.
  4. When ready to serve, pour in the dairy blend, adjust the seasoning, then add the minced chives. Ladle into bowls and serve.
