SUMMER GARDEN BISQUE ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’š

in #esteem โ€ข 2 years ago (edited)

Hello my Dearest Foodies,

Although, I don't have my own vegetable garden and neither my landlord, I am lucky enough to get some veggies from my friendly neighbors. Right now is still early for most of other goodies, but herbs are already growing wild, so I was given bouquet of an Italian parsley, little bit of sage, chives and peppermint.

I had cauliflower in the refrigerator and I have almost always spinach, so an idea for yummy bisque recipe was born, lol. Well I did not use the peppermint, but otherwise I have include it all. It turned out absolutely delicious and refreshing for this time of year, because it can be eaten cool. It is also highly nutritious and almost saturated fat free!!! Yet, the texture and flavor is very creamy!

PROCESS
โ€ข Wash and cut the cauliflower into smaller pieces.
โ€ข Bring one cup of water into boil in a medium size pot and add the cauliflower.

โ€ข Blend all until smooth and add cashew cream and 1 cup of boiled water.
โ€ข Blend again and transfer to a bowl or a pot.
โ€ข See how do you like the thickness and if you find it too thick, you may add more boiled water. It depends about the size of your cauliflower.
โ€ข It can be served hot or room temperature, toped with hemp seeds or VEGAN PARMESAN.

That is a fantastic photo! The recipe sounds really good. I have so many veggies from my CSA box right now. They seem to be having a very productive year with all of this rain and cool weather!U&R

That is a good news; we had heavy rain last night but today is sunny again, with some clouds. And thank you so much Melinda; if you get cauliflower maybe you can try it ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’š

I've complained in the past that we do not get nearly enough cauliflower in our veggie boxes. We always have more than enough broccoli though! It is raining out there again now.

Cauliflower is usually very expensive. I am always on the look out for a good deal.

Today is not raining. It was only last night.
