Apple & cauliflower soup

I wanted to write something nice about apples, but words may not be enough to describe such an amazing and versatile fruit.

So I will go straight to the point and talk about today’s recipe: this apple and cauliflower soup with all its light and fresh flavour…


Inspiration came from a BBC Good Food cookbook, but I made my tweaks to the ingredients and cooking methods to make it as healthy and as nourishing as possible.


I then garnished it with some pan-toasted chickpeas to add a really nice bite. Have you ever thought of using apples for a savoury meal?



INGREDIENTS for the soup:

1 medium cauliflower

3 apples

½ garlic clove

Salt to taste

Black pepper to taste

500ml unsweetened soy milk


INGREDIENTS for the topping:

100gr cooked chickpeas

½ garlic clove

1 tsp thyme

½ tsp sweet paprika

Black pepper to taste

Salt to taste

Olive oil for cooking



INSTRUCTIONS:

Peel the apples and cut them into small chunks together with the cauliflower. Place them in a steamer pot and cook for about 15 minutes or until soft.


Place the steamed veggies in a blender, add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Add more salt or milk according to your taste.


In a pan, stir-fry the spices and garlic. Add the cooked and drained chickpeas, a pinch of salt and cook over high heat until dry and golden-brown.


Serve the soup and garnish with the chickpeas and a drizzle of olive oil.
