This recipe sounds a bit on the bland side..where's the garlic? Bay leaf? Parsley? I'm making mine with a bit of curry and fresh ginger, roasted cauliflower and parsnip, roasted garlic. I imagine you can freeze this, but I would use within a month or two.


Can you freeze this soup once cooked?


He wouldn't use synthetic truffle oil, but he would use truffle infused oil.


Gordon Ramsay wouldn't put truffle oil on any of his dishes

I just finished making this about an hour ago. My mum wanted to try cauliflower soup, so I looked on here and found Gordon.r's one to be the most attractive looking recipe from all the other cauliflower soup recipes on this site as it requires less ingredients and seemed simple enough to make. I tried it out, n it tastes really good ( even if I do say so myself!), but I changed it around a little, but followed the recipe religiously just adding here n there. I added a little bit of cumin powder, coriander powder, paprika powder ( all 1/2 tsp), and 1/4 tsp chilli powder along with salt and pepper when the recipe stated add seasoning. This gave the soup depth. And to make the stock I used 3 veg oxo cubes for 1.2 litres of water. Dont b scared that it'll be too strong, it actually tastes just right! Overall, this is a brilliant, tasty and easy recipe that I'd definitely recommend and will use again!. Good one Gordon!;) It is quite thick, so if you want it a little funnier, add more water/milk at the end.

Hi Hutchinson, Thanks for your comments about the site - we're glad you're enjoying it. If you use the print button that's underneath the recipe picture at the top of the page this should put it into a simpler format and in most cases mean it prints on 1 sheet of A4. Thanks


If you would like to save paper. Just get a screen grabber programme,like Screen Saver deluxe. loved the soup I made. Just added a spoonfull of sugar


having just recently joined the "good to know" website I have found that the recipe ideas to be very usefull....however could you ask your programmer to look at getting the recipes (where possible) on to one A4 page I have printed off a few and find the wast of paper annoying, and wasteful example........Gordon Ramseys cream of cauliflower soup
