Cauliflower and Chorizo Soup

Print Recipe

To Serve 2 you will need:
1 Cauliflower
50g butter - unsalted
300ml whole fat milk
300ml chicken stock (I used a Knorr chicken stock cube)
A good handful of diced spicy Chorizo sausage
A small handful of flat-leaf parsley
Salt and pepper to season

How to do it:
Melt the butter in a large skillet and fry the cauliflower florets until they start to go nice and brown in places.

Take care they don't burn by keeping it moving about.

Heat the stock and milk and add both to the cauliflower, bring to the boil then turn down to a simmer. Cook until the cauliflower is tender, but not mushy.

Season with salt and pepper to your taste. Blend the soup in a blender until it's of the consistency you like. I did mine on the thickish side.

If you want yours thinner then you can always force it through a sieve.

Dice the chorizo into small pieces and gently fry in a hot pan until crisp and you have all the lovely orange oil coming from it.

Once that's done you can add the chopped parsley and stir fry only for a few seconds.

Pour the soup into bowls, sprinkle with the Chorizo and parsley mix and drizzle over some of the lovely orangey oil from the pan.


  1. I've never had cauliflower soup before. I bet the Chorizo was an amazing addition though

  2. I had sprout and chorizo soup just before Christmas, and that was great, I bet this has a similar taste to it. It looks lovely.

  3. By the way, I am such a retard... I only normally look at your pictures and only read the text if I need the recipe so I didn't know about the TV thing until now. I just read back and watched your audition video... I'm so excited for you, I'm sure you'll be great whatever it is! well done!

  4. The soup looks great Jan.
    Looking forward to hearing about some of your TV stuff!

  5. Not a big fan of cauliflower but with chorizo...yum yum!

  6. I have never had cauliflower soup before, but this sounds yummy. I love the addition of chorizo.

  7. I love cauliflower soup and I think Chorizo is just the ingredient to spruce it up...nice find!

  8. That looks tasty! I really like the chorizo topping!

  9. OK, you know when I said I was going you make your cheese and cherry starter for the dinner party? Well, I have just scrapped that in favour of this. Double yum!

  10. Woo hoo - I finally made a version of this (roasted cauliflower, added sage) - and it was DIVINE!!

    Thanks so much for the inspiration Jan :)
