Serves 4 as a starter, 3 as a main; Preparation 10 minutes, cooking time 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large white cauliflower (I think the yellow/orange ones would work okay as well but the purple and green varieties might look a bit strange!)
  • 2 small onions
  • A little vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp sumac
  • 1 heaped tbsp harrisa paste
  • 1 litre of hot vegetable or chicken stock
  • 50g of ground almonds

Equipment:

  • Chopping board and sharp knife
  • Large saucepan and spoon
  • Hand/stick blender (or liquidizer)

Method:

Chop the cauliflower into medium sized chunks and roughly chop the onions.

Gently fry the spices and the harrisa paste for 5 minutes.

Add the cauliflower, onions, ground almonds and stock and bring to the boil.

Simmer for 20 minutes and then turn of the heat and blend the soup until smooth.
