3 tasty ideas with cauliflower

A soup, relish and toastie packed with flavour

Cauliflower might not look like much, but we reckon it’s one of the most underrated veggies. Enjoy it silky smooth, crunchy or with charred edges.

1. Cauliflower and apple soup

Simmer 600g cauliflower florets with 1 litre milk, 2 bay leaves, ½ pack spinneysFOOD Thyme and 50g butter until tender. Remove the herbs and blitz until smooth. Top the soup with crème fraîche, apple matchsticks and croutons.

2. Piccalilli

Make cauliflower centre of attention with piccalilli. Check out this method that follows to the letter the tradition that piccalilli must be super-crunchy, colourful and alive with spice.

3. Cauliflower cheese toasties

Steam 6 cauliflower florets until just tender. Mix 1 tsp wholegrain mustard through 60g alfredo sauce and spread a quarter on to 2 slices of toast. Top with the cauliflower, spoon over the remaining sauce, scatter with 2 tbsp grated cheddar and grill.

DID YOU KNOW? Cauli has plenty of antioxidants, vitamin C and fibre but barely any calories. Yes please!
