Cream of Organic Cauliflower with Honey Soup


    Warm up with this creamy comfort food. Down-to-earth flavours of cauliflower blend smoothly with a hint of sweet honey. Rocky Mountain Flatbread keeps their daily soup pots full. This soup disappears from those pots as soon as their doors are opened.


    3 cups (750 mL) cauliflower
    2 medium-sized yellow onions
    2/3 cup (160 mL) celery (5 sticks)
    4 cloves garlic
    4 Tbsp (60 mL) olive oil
    Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
    4 cups (l L) filtered water
    1/2 cup (125 mL) whipping cream
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) honey

    Coarsely dice all vegetables. Sauté with salt and pepper in olive oil over medium heat until soft.

    Add 2/3 of the water and cook until vegetables are very soft. Turn off heat and puree with a hand blender.

    Add cream and honey. Bring to a boil. Add remaining water until you achieve the desired consistency. Season to taste.

    To serve, garnish soup with julienned roasted red bell peppers and/or some pesto.

    Makes 8 cups (2 L).

    An Elegant Afternoon Tea

    Whether you call her Mom, Mother, Momma, or Mum, an afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate that special person in your life. It can not only be a fun and elegant occasion but also offer a wonderfully relaxed celebration. Afternoon tea has come to be a sort of ritual that allows you to slow down and take your time. The pace is gentle and calm, allowing time for everyone to unwind. Because it’s also something we don’t all do every day, it can help spark conversation and provide a special sense of occasion. The host can prepare food in advance, and with plenty of options both savoury and sweet, it can easily provide something that all will enjoy. And because offerings are all beautifully laid out and displayed, there’s no getting up and down from the table, which leaves everyone free for the most important reason for gathering—spending time with Mom. With afternoon tea, there’s plenty of opportunity to visit and spend time together and enjoy delicious food; these six recipes will help you prepare an afternoon tea to nourish body and soul and to celebrate Mom in style.
