Cauliflower Soup

This is a light soup which is very low in calories. Don’t be tempted to cook the cauliflower for longer because the soup will lose its delicate flavour.


1 cauliflower, cut into florets and washed

1 onion, sliced

1 red chilli, left whole

Salt and black pepper

900ml (1½ pints) stock, vegetable, or water

To serve:

Chopped parsley

Serves 4 soup portions or 8 cups


1. Place the cauliflower, onion and chilli into a saucepan, season and pour over the stock or water. Bring up to the boil on the Boiling Plate then simmer for 3-4 minutes.

2. Transfer to the simmering oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and discard the chilli. Purée the soup and reheat. Check the seasoning and serve a garnish of chopped parsley. Accompany with a savoury scone or soda bread.

Conventional cooking
Simmer on the hotplate until the cauliflower is just tender.
