PIURE DE CAOPIDA FIN IF WE BELIEVE
Cauliflower is a vegetable that I've kind of neglected lately, but did you know how rich it is in vitamins (C, B3, B5 and B6, phosphorus and potassium), fiber and protein? Besides the fact that it contains very few calories, it is also very beneficial for health by the fact that it produces antibodies and hemoglobin and protects us against asthma, allergies, migraines and depression. It has properties to improve skin health, helps maintain energy levels and balances the concentration of fat in the blood, and is often consumed as an adjunct to treat allergic rhinitis, asthma and inflammatory bowel disease or depression and anxiety.
An additional advantage for cauliflower is the fact that it is prepared very easily and quickly, most of the time being even indicated to be cooked as little or not at all as possible in order to maintain its nutritional qualities and crunchy texture.
Yes, I know, there are some of us who don't prefer it because it doesn't taste good, but that's exactly what I think is a big advantage. It can be combined with a lot of herbs and spices, being delicious as such in salads or breadcrumbs, extremely tasty baked, plain or au gratin, but also in dishes or garnishes such as this fine and creamy cauliflower puree that I enjoyed it the next day with a sheet of cod cooked for the first time in a vacuum.
- 300 gr. cauliflower (about half an average piece)
- 150 ml. milk
- 90 gr. butter
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 white pepper powder
- 1 nutmeg powder
- juice from half a lemon
How to prepare the finest and creamy cauliflower puree
1 Prepare your ingredients close and a vertical or hand blender because this puree is ready in no time. It almost takes longer to prepare the small bunches of cauliflower that you separate to boil quickly and evenly. You can chop them with a knife, but I think they would break too hard and it would be a shame.
2 Put the milk and half the amount of butter in a saucepan to boil, then add the prepared cauliflower. Season with a pinch of salt, white pepper and a little nutmeg, cover with a lid and bring to the boil. Minimize the temperature, then let the cauliflower steam for about 15 minutes. You will notice that it is quite well done by changing the color which becomes a little translucent or you can prick it with a knife for checking.
3 Drain the remaining milk in a bowl and put the cauliflower in a blender with a cube of butter and mix well, using, if necessary, 2-3 tablespoons of hot milk.
4 At the end, gradually add the juice from half a lemon so that it suits your taste and continue mixing until you get the creamiest and finest cauliflower puree you have ever eaten.
It goes very well with fish, next to which I used it today as a garnish, but you can use this quick and easy method to prepare other equally tasty purees from peas, broccoli, carrots or celery, especially since they are much healthier than the mashed potatoes we use quite often in addition to everyday dishes.

When the breaded cauliflower has turned golden to brown, it is ready.
Method of preparation
Unwrap the cauliflower in bunches, wash it well and boil it in salted water for about a quarter of an hour. After it has boiled, we put it in a strainer and pass it again under a stream of cold water. Then put the butter in a saucepan and, as soon as it heats up, add the flour, stirring to mix.
Thin with milk, add salt and pepper to taste and simmer for a few minutes, until the obtained composition thickens like cream. Take the pan off the heat, wait for it to cool and add the yolks, along with the grated cheese. Then, lightly incorporate the egg whites, sprinkling a pinch of salt.
Grease a heat-resistant bowl with butter, place the cauliflower and pour the sauce. Then, gently shake the bowl until the sauce is evenly distributed, covering the whole cauliflower. All we have to do is put the dish in the oven, and after about three quarters of an hour, we will be able to serve it.

Cauliflower soup, meatless recipe
Meatless cauliflower soup, picture recipe. How to make cauliflower soup only with vegetables, seasoned with cream.
If you like cauliflower, you can't help but like this cauliflower soup recipe, made without meat and topped with sour cream and fresh egg yolks. It is a soup with a pleasant and delicate taste, enriched in a happy way by the added vegetables and vegetables and I would say that it is only good for a lunch or a dinner where we serve a main course based on meat.
We have long since given up meals that contained meat of every kind and we feel much better when we associate a main course more consistent with a soup like cauliflower, which I propose today, or with a cream of vegetable soup.
In fact, talking to my husband, we realized that our grandmothers, without having had any nutrition studies, were perfectly good at making balanced menus for family lunch. When they prepared a hearty soup, such as a smoked bean soup or even a potato soup with meat, they were followed by no steaks, meatballs or other meat dishes, but dessert, which was also the last dish of that meal, usually plum or apricot dumplings (depending on the season), donuts, poppy or breadcrumbs, pancakes, etc. The habit of eating so much meat, I think, became ingrained in our country much later and is, in fact, related to the desire to remove from memory all the shortcomings of the communist period.
Returning to the cauliflower soup recipe that I propose today, it is very simple and quick and is suitable for the little ones.
