Instructions

Cauliflower Soup

Cut the cauliflower into small pieces and set aside. Heat the olive oil until it starts to shimmer. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3 minutes without colouring. Add the cauliflower, Simon Gault Home Cuisine vegetable stock, butter and cream. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Once cooked, purée in a high-speed blender until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper then pour into a clean saucepan and set aside until needed

Instructions

Onion Purée

Cover the cipolline onions with the milk in a medium-sized saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 25 minutes, stirring continuously, so the milk doesn't catch on the bottom. Once cooked, strain the onions through a sieve and then discard the milk. Purée the onions in a high-speed blender until smooth. Pour into a medium-sized plastic squeeze bottle with a fine nozzle. Keep warm ready for use.

Assembly

Reheat the cauliflower soup, then pour into a serving jug. Pour equal portions of the soup into the demitasse cups, then swirl some onion purée from the squeeze bottle over the top of each cup.
