Only a Few Ingredients

Best Healthy Cauliflower Soup Recipe-Carrots, Cauliflower and Sweet Pepper

We need only a few ingredients, and of course, cauliflower is the basic ingredient, I chose a medium-sized piece from which we will get at least four servings of soup.

The second ingredient is carrots, I used four pieces, but it is your decision what is the quantity used, it is preferable that the cauliflower still dominates quantitatively. For the flavour, I will use a sweet pepper, but in the end, I will take it out of the soup.

Let me show you how to prepare these ingredients.

Preparing the Ingredients

We start with cauliflower, which we first cut into florets, after that, I cut the florets into small pieces.

Carrots, after peeling them, I cut them into small cubes, to bring the cooking time closer to that of cauliflower.

And the pepper, because I will use it only for taste, I cut it in half and took out its seeds.

Because I also learned this recipe in Transylvania where most soups are thickened in various methods, we will start now with a thickening. To do this, heat about 50 ml of sunflower oil in a soup pot, in which we will lightly fry two tablespoons of wheat flour.

Fry for about a minute, stirring constantly, and because we were talking about a recipe with Hungarian influences, we add two teaspoons of sweet paprika powder.
