Potato and Cauliflower Soup

For years we lived in Dublin city centre and loved every minute of it. Just minutes away from the O’Connell Street with the stores, cinemas, museums and other great attractions just a reach of the hand.  

But with A. coming along we decided to move away from busy streets and settle in a quieter part of the Dublin. Away from rush and traffic. Close to the park and children playground where A. and I like to spend time. Yet still walk away from schools, shops and other facilities.

I have to say I enjoy it. Even more than the busy streets I use to love so much...

Prep time : 15 min
Cooking time : 35-40 min
(Serves 4)


1 kg cauliflower, cut into florets
1 large potato cut in chunks
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
½ tsp cayenne pepper
700 ml chicken or vegetable broth
Fresh ground pepper
3-4 tsp olive oil


In a large pot combine cauliflower, potato, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper and broth. Bring it to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 25-30 min or until vegetables are tender.

With a hand-held blender blend soup until smooth.  You can use blender or food processor to blend the soup.

Divide among four bowls, drizzle with olive oil and season with fresh ground pepper.
