say it with me - yipee yahooo, we got sunshine today, and lots of it. i'm washing like crazy, airing out boxes and just about every bit &bob, getting the last of the musty-moldy smell out of everything.
i'm aiming for today to be the penultimate packing day, leaving the kitchen and we-need-this-to-the-very-last-minute stuff for Thursday or Friday morn.
clearing out the freezer is just one of those jobs we all do when moving isn't it? so i decided to make soup with the last of my homemade chicken stock*. the weather is still mild enough for soup. and i loooove soup.
roasted cauliflower soup
cauliflower - into florets
carrots - chunks
onions - halved
garlic - unpeeled
3 parts chicken stock 1 part water
drizzle olive oil over the veg and roast at 180C for about 30-40mins, until lightly browned.
peel the garlic.
add veg to a pot of water. (i usually leave cauliflower for last 5 mins but doesn't matter)
simmer gently until veg are soft through (about 15 mins).
simmer for 5 mins.
adjust water/stock for desired consistency.
salt & black pepper
ground thai spice mix
fresh thyme (anything but fresh herbs in quick-cooking soups is usually a big mistake)
dollop of thick cream or creme fraiche
roast potatoes for heartier soup
so easy and tasty.
