I hate to admit this but I was a bit panicked at the gym today. My friend Haewon is coming over for lunch tomorrow and I hadn’t figured out what I wanted to make for our meal. I know life is not that complicated and she is so nice she probably wouldn’t care what I made….but I care. I want her to have a delicious lunch! Also she has set the bar pretty high when she had me over for lunch at her place, we had a delicious tomato tart…it was absolutely perfect…..
Funny irrelevant note: I have napkins at home that say: :”who ever keeps on raising the bar should give it a rest already” funny, right…
So here is my menu:
Roasted Cauliflower Soup
Mushroom Quiche, I know how 80’s of me! (here is the link to my “classic/basic” Quiche: Mushrooms and Bacon Quiche )
Raspberry and Oatmeal Delicacy (recipe coming soon)
1 cauliflower head cut into pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
1 medium onion diced
1 carrot chopped
1 celery rib chopped
2 garlic cloves
Splash hot sauce
4 1/2 cup vegetable broth (warm)
1 cup milk (or half and half)
Sour cream (for serving)
Shredded white cheddar cheese (for serving)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl mix your cauliflower with salt, pepper, rosemary and olive oil. Place on a baking sheet and put in your preheated oven for 30 minutes. Set aside while you start the soup.
In a large dutch oven, saute your onion, carrot, celery and garlic in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Cook your vegetables on medium low heat for 5-10 minutes until soft and fragrant (do not cook on high heat this might cause your garlic to burn and get really bitter which will taste awful in your soup) Add your roasted cauliflower, splash hot sauce and warm broth. Bring this to a boil, reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and using an immersion blender, puree your soup until desired consistency. Add your cream and return to heat gently heating up your soup. Serve with a spoonful of sour cream and a sprinkle of shredded cheese.
