Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and chopped
  • 1 shallot peeled and chopped
  • 1 large cauliflower head though ends trimmed, roughly chopped
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 6 peppercorns
  • 3.5 oz blue cheese 100 g, roughly crumbled

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat, add garlic and shallots and cook for about one minute. Add cauliflower and cook for about 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring often.
  2. Cover with vegetable stock, add peppercorns and bring to a boil. Reduce to low heat, cover with a lid and simmer for about 15 minutes or until cauliflower is very soft. Remove from the heat and add blue cheese.
