Polish Cauliflower Soup {Zupa Kalafiorowa}

Cauliflower is a vegetable that Poles mainly eat in the summer, when it’s in season. My family rarely ate it raw, and even though it gets pretty hot in the summer, soups are often made – a cauliflower soup being one of them. Cauliflower soup is very mild, buttery with a soft cauliflower and dill taste. Because of it mellow taste, its liked by kids, and because of how quickly its made, its liked by moms.

Polish Cauliflower Soup {Zupa Kalafiorowa}

  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 20 min

Ingredients

  • 1.5 quarts of chicken (or vegetable) stock
  • 2 carrots
  • 5-6 medium potatoes
  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup of cream
  • 2 tbs of fresh dill
  • Salt

Instructions

  1. In a large pot heat chicken stock, add sliced carrots and peeled and cubed potatoes. If stock is unsalted, add a tsp of salt, and simmer on low until potatoes and carrots are almost done (about 10 min).

  2. In the meantime, wash cauliflower and divide into smaller pieces. After potatoes and carrots are almost done, add cauliflower pieces and simmer on low for about 5 min.

  3. Pour cream into a bowl, add about a tablespoon of hot stock into the cream, stir, repeat twice. Once cream is tempered add to soup along with dill. Stir and heat through. Taste. Add a bit more salt, if needed.

Notes

If serving to adults, or if kids don't mind, sprinkle with freshly ground pepper.

Even though its not traditional way, to spice it up and put an Americans spin on it, garnish of cheese would work great with the soup, but do taste it the way it is first.

Smacznego!
