Cauliflower Soup with Phillipa Nefri Clark!

Delectable Cauliflower Soup

So silky and creamy you’ll want to make it often. Add your own 

preferred level of heat and sweetness.


500gm cauliflower (chopped finely for faster cooking)
50gm butter
60gm cream cheese
20gm pecan nuts
1 spring onion or small onion of choice, finely sliced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely diced
1 tablespoon of quality mustard (I used Dijon)
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
Vegetable stock as required
For finishing: lemon, chives, cream, salt & pepper

 Heat frying pan over medium heat and add butter, mustard, ginger, and onion. When onion is soft, add cauliflower and cook until it begins to brown and soften, stirring often. Add vegetable stock (approx. 1 cup) and allow to simmer until cooked. Use more stock if you prefer a thinner soup. Add cream cheese, maple syrup, and pecans, stirring until mixed through.

Blitz with a hand blender or similar until completely silky smooth. Pour into two bowls, drizzle cream on top, then add some chives, salt & pepper to taste, and a good squeeze of lemon.

Indulgent enough for a dinner party, but quick enough to make anytime. 

About Phillipa Nefri Clark

Phillipa Nefri Clark grew up around lonely Australian beaches with wild seas and misty cliffs. From a young age she wrote stories and dreamed of being a writer. There were many detours along the way as she trod paths as diverse as a travelling sales rep to singing and acting. Fascinated by film, Phillipa wrote five feature length screenplays, one which was optioned. Now living in regional Victoria on a small acreage close to a mountain range, she markets the family business a few days a week and writes the rest of the time. With nonfiction credits for specialist canine publications, she finally returned to stories with the release of The Stationmaster’s Cottage, a dual timeline romance, in February 2017. Her great loves, apart from writing, are her family of two young adult sons and her husband, their Labrador, music,  fine wine, and friends.

Jasmine Sea: A River's End Love Story. Book Two

Sometimes facing the past is the only way forward.

Starting over never felt better. Christie Ryan adores the little cottage she’s renovating, the seaside town that embraced her, and Martin Blake, the man she longs to marry. Ex-fiancĂ© Derek Hobbs is finally out of the picture, and there are no more secrets in her life or mysteries to solve.

Will the arrival of a mysterious woman who commissions a portrait from Martin under a cloud of secrecy break her after all? Unrest and suspicion remind Christie that happiness can be fleeting, and when the peaceful town is shattered by crime, her past is again thrust into the limelight.

With one chance and only minutes to save those she loves, Christie comes face to face with her greatest fear—and there is no way around it.

Jasmine Sea follows on from The Stationmaster's Cottage, set shortly after its stunning conclusion.

  4. Oh my gosh, cauliflower soup! This sounds wondrous. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Sandra, you can also use the base ingredients for other vegetables such as broccoli, sweet potato, or mushroom. Love cauliflower soup! In The Stationmaster's Cottage (River's End Romance Book 1), there was a scene with a similar recipe - however it ended up being deleted! I may put together some of the deleted scenes as a blog one day :-).

  5. I'm normally a soup person, but these ingredients make this sound very yummy! Hugs...RO

    1. Hi RO! The beauty is that you can make it as thick or thin as you wish, so if you prefer more of a puree texture then leave out some liquid. Let me know if you try it :-).

  6. Sandra sent my over - and I adore cauliflower - any way it comes. Thank you so much for expanding my repetoire.
