Ingredients
  • 750 g (1½ lb) cauliflower florets – about 1 large cauliflower
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1-2 tsp cumin seeds (or ½-1 tsp cumin powder)
  • 800 ml (28 fl oz) vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Cream to serve (optional)
  • Chives to garnish (optional)

Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onions, garlic and cumin for 5 minutes to soften the onions.
  2. Add the cauliflower and the stock. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.
  3. Allow the soup to cool slightly before processing with a hand blender or food processor.
  4. Reheat the soup and serve with a swirl of cream (optional) and some chopped chives (optional).

Titli’s Tips
Vary the cumin according to your taste. A single tsp of seeds will give good flavour to the soup, while 2 tsp will make a spicier soup.
