Nothing says comfort as a bowl of soup on a cold day! This creamy cauliflower base soup is made extra creamy with a touch of cashews and brought to life with a little bit of lemon and lavender. Tastes super delicious with a grilled cheese sandwich.
Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Lemon and Lavender
1 head cauliflower — chopped (about 2 lbs)
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
⅓ cup cashews
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lavender
4 garlic cloves — finely chopped
5 cups vegetable broth
Freshly ground black pepper, to garnish
In a medium saucepan, add onion, saute until softened about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower, garlic, lavender stir to combine and then add vegetable broth. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Add soup to a blender with cashews, lemon juice and salt. Blend until smooth. (If you don't have a blender that can do this, blend your lemon juice and cashews in mixer with 1 cup of soup until smooth. Add all back to soup pot and heat if needed. We like to garnish with drizzle of olive oil, little slice of lemon and chopped chives. Tastes delicious with grilled cheese sandwiches.
