Cauliflower and Celeriac Soup

2016-07-24 18.20.19-2

Have I told you just how much I love cauliflower?

Well, I love cauliflower very, very much….so much so my 9 year old daughter ask me the other day, “Mummy if you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?” Well, if I could, my darling, perhaps I would!!

We all have our favourite vegetable, I have many but Cauli is most certainly on the top of the list. It is botanically, a member in the cruciferous or brassicaceae family of vegetables 2016-07-26 10.57.16and  nutritionally contains dietary fibre, several anti-cancer phyto-chemicals, Vitamin C, good amounts of many vital B-complex groups of vitamins such as folates, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and thiamin (vitamin B1), niacin (B3) as well as vitamin K, manganese, copper, iron, calcium and potassium. No wonder I love it so much!

 

Celeriac is one  vegetable that many may never have cooked with or even know of it’s existence. I like to cook with it and add it into things like so2016-07-25 09.30.55ups, stews and mash, giving it a different flavour and nutritional profile. It is also, a change from white potatoes.

Give it a try, you will find it in most supermarkets or good green grocers.

This knarly, strange looking root vegetable is closely related to celery. It is  very good source of Vitamin K, some valuable source of Vitamin B complex and Vitamin C, along with phosphorus, iron, calcium, copper, and manganese.

 

 

Chop them all up, with some leeks, spices and some stock and you have yourself a lovely, delish, nutrish soup!
