Soup(er) Sunday – Cream of Cauliflower Soup

This is an old favourite, one I’ve been making for many years. I believe it might be an old weight watchers one, so it’s pretty low fat, and like always, super easy to make.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil (4 tsp for USA)

2 tablespoons plain flour  (8 tsp for USA)

1 can evaporated skim milk

2 cups vegetable or chicken stock

1 small cauliflower, broken into florets (I cut into chunks)

Heal oil in a non stick pan, then add flour to make a paste with the oil.

Gradually stir in the milk, then still stirring, bring to the boil until sauce thickens (try to avoid lumps like I got…. but don’t normally..don’t worry if you do cause it all gets blended at the end)

Add stock and cauliflower. Cook covered on a moderated heat for 15mins.

Blend, season if desired, and enjoy. It makes about 4 bowls and most of this batch got devoured by my family this afternoon.
