A velvety-smooth soup spotlighting cauliflower's many delicate flavors, accentuated by sautéed onion and leek.
I make this soup, or something quite like it, all year, with frozen corn and fresh.
It can be hard to resist a recipe that includes the phrase “lime-scented sour cream” so why even try. Cauliflower is simmered until tender, pureed until smooth, enriched with a scoop of that lime-scented sour cream and then served with crumbles of crisp chorizo and another dollop of that cream.
This simple soup is hauntingly autumnal: sweet pumpkin simmered with spices and stock, then pureed and dressed with a grating of smoked cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
