There are times when I just want a bowl of soup. Just soup… No sandwich, no salad, not even crackers. Just a bowl of something warm and soul soothing. My easy to make cauliflower bisque was just the ticket. It’s made with fresh picked cauliflower, onions, garlic, coriander and a bit of cream to give it a velvety texture.
While my cauliflower was cooking away on the stove, I grabbed my camera and headed outside. I had only a few minutes before I needed to get back to my dish. As soon as I opened my back door and stepped out on the patio, the smell of lilacs caught my attention…
Lilacs are some of my all time favorite flowers. I love the light purple color and the sweet scent. They are lovely in a vase.
Petunias in a hanging basket. The gold color reminds me of sunshine…
My mother gave me this Dogwood tree a few years back… Notice that the flower has only four petals? I think that it is simply gorgeous…
I had only a few minutes to spare before my cauliflower was done so I stopped by my pot of fresh chives. They are almost ready to bloom! I snipped a few after I took this photo for garnish on my soup. Now back to the kitchen…
My Cauliflower Bisque takes about a half an hour to make and is just delicious. Garnish with fresh snipped chives and grated cheddar cheese. Wrap your hands around a warm creamy bowl of my Cauliflower Bisque and enjoy! Tessa
