Cream of Cauliflower Soup

DSCN2586

Last weekend we had a great NON-VEGAN dinner with ten friends at Talula’s Table in Kennett Square (http://talulastable.com/tt/) – an eight course chef’s tasting menu with all sorts of exotic goodies. But one of the best experiences was a very simple cauliflower soup, which we’re recreating tonight with our own recipe. We’ve added fresh grated ginger and dill to the mix, to give it our own special taste, while we await the snow. PS Our bodies told us the next day that vegan was a good choice for us. The meal was delicious, the after-effects were not…. ~ Will and Glyn
