Right now, here, in Bulgaria it’s minus 16 degrees C outside. Remember few posts ago when I was complaining about not having a winter at all? Well, we have her majesty in her full glory today and all I want to do is snuggle in warm blankets. Besides the icy cap we have on, the wind is making things pretty rough outside. Brrrrr is all you can say!
There’s nothing cozier than a cup of tea, a good book and a fireplace to help you spent these days. When you are hungry, however, there’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of hot soup to warm you up from the inside. This creation is the perfect match for a gloomy, winter day. It has the ideal creamy structure, almost as you are eating an ice-cream. The best thing is this cauliflower creaminess is relatively fast and easy to make. Next time, when you loved one is coming home from a freezing meeting at work, meet him/her with this goodness.
1 small cauliflower
1 cup milk
1 tbsp butter
3 tbsp semolina
salt, pepper & seasonings to taste
Cut the cauliflower in small pieces, cover with hot water and let it boil for 30 minutes. Season with salt and add the milk. Stir well. Gradually add the semolina, while stirring. Don’t let it transform into lumps!
After another 10 minutes you can remove it from the stove. Add the butter and let it melt. When ready, stir it one last time and use a mixer/blender to make the soup creamy. If it’s too dense, add some water.
Voila! Your warming magic is ready in less than an hour. You can add garlic, chilly pepper or lemon juice. Combine it with freshly baked bread and a glass of red wine for ultimate anti-freezing experience 🙂
