An excellent creamy cauliflower soup with sausage and croûtons that will please and warm-up especially on colder days. Some of you may not be a big fan of cauliflower but believe me, cauliflower in the form of soup can be really delicious.
And I have to say, this is one of my favorite soups ever. The pleasant and noticeable taste of cauliflower will really impress you.
As with other soups, creamy cauliflower soup requires a small amount of ingredients. The most important one is of course cauliflower. When choosing a cauliflower, make sure that the head is hard and compact with a nice rich creamy white color.
In addition to cauliflower, we need just basic ingredients such as onions or garlic and vegetable broth (or even water). It is good to use one larger potato, which will provide the required density.
What moves this creamy cauliflower soup to another level are croutons with spicy sausage or salami. I like to use Spanish dried chorizo sausage, which is characterized by its typical distinctive smokiness and spiciness.
The whole preparation of croûtons and chorizo slices is very easy. Simply cut the bread into cubes, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with some olive oil.
Remember that older bread is best for croutons (at least 1 day) – it’s a great way to use an old bread. When the pieces of bread slowly turn into crunchy croûtons in a pan, add the thinly sliced spicy sausage and let it fry for a few minutes until the croûtons have a nice brown-golden color.
Moreover, the croutons will soak the succulent oil from the chorizo sausage and they will become the best croûtons you have ever tasted!Print
