Cauliflower and Arctic® Granny Soup

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus additional for drizzling
  • 3 Arctic® Granny apples, diced
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, greens and stem removed and cut into florets
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 quart vegetable or chicken broth
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • Aleppo pepper
  • Chopped parsley

Directions:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan. Add the apples and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Remove to a bowl. Add the remaining oil and the onion, garlic and ginger and cook until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add the curry and saffron and cook 1 minute longer. Add the cauliflower, half the apples, salt and broth and bring to a boil. Simmer until cauliflower is tender, about 12-15 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and Aleppo pepper and simmer 5 minutes longer.
  2. Puree with an immersion blender or transfer to a blender and blend in batches. If very thick, add additional broth or water. Taste for seasoning and serve topped with the remaining apples, a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of parsley and Aleppo pepper.
