Ingredients

  • 120 g. melted butter (1/2 cup - 1 stick)
  • 2 medium onions cut into dice
  • 1 medium potato, peeled and grated with the medium grade blade and the Food Processor 
  • 1 medium sized head of cauliflower, broken into small flowerets
  • 2 litres (quarts)  vegetable stock
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 eggs, hardboiled and cut into fine dice
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced chives

Cauliflower which comes from the same plant family as cabbage, brussel sprouts, kale and broccoli is low in fat, carbohydrates and high in dietary fibre, folate and vitamin C. Blending the cauliflower and potato is what gives this soup its creamy texture. The Cooking Chef is excellent for making soups, allowing you to be hands free while it stirs and simmers at the same time.
