Cream of Cauliflower Soup
Rating (0 Rated)
Take a side trip to heaven (like a farmers market or Outpost's produce department) to pick up a head of fresh, seasonal cauliflower for this soup. You won't be disappointed. The secret with this creamy, velvety soup is, instead of heavy cream, you use buttermilk.
serves 6


2 cups onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
3 cups potatoes, diced
1 cup celery, chopped
5 cups water
1 cup carrots, peeled and chopped
5 cups cauliflower, chopped (1 medium head)
1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped (or 2 teaspoons dried)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried mustard
1⁄4 teaspoon caraway seeds (optional)
2 cups buttermilk
Salt & pepper to taste
