|Cauliflower simmering away|
The recipes was so creamy, rich and velvety, that you really don't need much more to each than a bowl of soup and maybe a slice of bread to help clean the bowl out.
Happy Meatless Monday!
Cauliflower Bisque with Gorgonzola
modified from CDKitchen.com
1 small onion, diced or leeks, chopped (used onion)
2 tablespoons celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 small cauliflower, cut into small chunks
salt and pepper
3 cups veggie broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
Gorgonzola cheese to taste
In a 3-quart saucepan, saute the onion or leek and celery in the butter until tender (about 5 min). Add the chopped cauliflower, a bit of salt and pepper and the broth; bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to low; cover and simmer until the cauliflower is very tender, about 20-25 minutes.
Use a stick blender to puree the soup until completely smooth and thick. Add the cream; mix well. Add salt and pepper, if needed (go easy as Gorgonzola is salty). Put soup in a bowl and sprinkle with parsley and Gorgonzola and stir in until melted.
