Cauliflower and Dill Soup

Kitchen Play List: Nickelback ~ Silver Side Up

Cauliflower is one of my most favourite vegetables. Along with broccoli I could eat it with every meal. I like it raw, steamed, mashed and in dishes. However, I don't like it mushed. lol. And I think we all know what that difference is. Yikes. lol. I found this simple soup when flicking through Linda Majzlik's cook book A Vegan Taste of Eastern Europe

It is so simple and very quick to make. And it's a creamy, yet light soup and very enjoyable. I loved it. Another way to enjoy cauliflower is always good with
