Cream of Cauliflower Soup Deluxe

1 tbsp butter
1 brown onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, diced
1 medium cauliflower, trimmed of it's leaves and cut into florettes
1/2 tbsp curry powder
2 cups of chicken stock
1 cup of water
1 cup of cream
black pepper
a pinch of salt

Heat butter and saute the onion and the garlic until soft and smelling good. Add curry powder, stock, water and cauliflower. Put the lid on and cook over a low heat for half an hour. The cauliflower should be tender by this stage. If it is soft, blend in batches and return to the pot. Stir in the cream and simmer until nice and hot - but not boiling! Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!

Made this last night - delicious! Hubby was sceptical when told what was for dinner, but became a fan once he tasted it! I didn't have any curry powder (major oversight to be rectified today - who doesn't have curry powder in the cupboard?!) so substituted a combination of cumin, corriander and tumeric. Served with toasted olive bread with persian feta smushed over it - yum!

Thanks Pip!
