Blogging Marathon# 26: Week 2/ Day 3
Theme: Soups & Salads
Dish: Cream of Vegetable — Cream of Mushroom Soup
For the 3rd day of blogging marathon with ‘Cream of Vegetable‘ being the star ingredient, I made Cream of Mushroom soup. But the creamy consistency for the dish actually comes from pureed cauliflower. I thought using pureed cauliflower instead of cream or other thickening agents in a soup is a genius idea!! Don’t you think?? It’s not my idea though, I found this amazing vegan cream of mushroom soup here and absolutely loved the idea.
I added some fat free half-and-half that needed to be used up instead of non-dairy milk and hence this is not a vegan recipe. Also instead of cauliflower I used broccoliflower which is a hybrid of cauliflower and broccoli. Other than that I followed the recipe to the ‘T’ and this soup is super creamy and hearty, perfect for the chilly weather.
