This creamy, silky, snowy white cauliflower puree is the most beautiful bowl of healthy and tasty soup. I can never get over how pretty it is, and therefore it has made many appearances on my dinner party tables, and makes an absolutely perfect starter for Christmas or New Years dinner.
The best part (besides its good looks) is how light it is. I sip the hot soup directly from the bowl, and have been known to finish a whole batch myself over a day or two- eek! I love a drizzle of truffle oil on the top, but have garnished with everything from fresh herbs and edible flowers to a single sterile bird feather on the top of each bowl (now that’s a fancy presentation).
When having a cocktail party, this is lovely served in shot glasses or espresso cups as a hot appetizer. However, this soup is delicious enough to pass the test with my children and I will often send a thermos of this hot soup in their lunch boxes- very versatile!
