Delicious soup with a little cheesy extra

Ingredients

250ml milk

400ml vegetable stock

1 large cauliflower, cut into florets

Booths

1 large potato, cubed

1 onion, chopped

4 slices sourdough

100g blue cheese

Handful of chopped chives

Method

Combine the milk, stock, cauliflower, potato, onion, and garlic in a large saucepan. Season with salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the vegetables are very tender, about 18 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile toast the sourdough slices and top with the blue cheese. Cook under a hot grill until the cheese has melted.

Puree the soup, in batches, in a blender until smooth. Add chives and pulse to combine. Season to taste and serve with the blue cheese croutons.
