Pinterest Winterest - a recipe that WORKED

Wednesday, 13 March 2013

The hilarity of was supposed to put me off trying anything and everything that Pinterest promised to be delicious, easy or 'the best'
But I saw this recipe and did wonder if it would be too good to be true

This is the recipe itself:
  • 1 large head cauliflower (the one I used was at least 7″ in diameter
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • Few dashes garam masala (optional)
  • 3 medium to large sized peeled sweet potatoes, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 7 cups filtered water
First, preheat your oven to 400 °F and cut up your cauliflower into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle cauliflower lightly with garam masala. Place cauliflower onto ungreased cookie sheet and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Place in oven and let roast until golden brown on the tops and tender, but not mushy, about 20-30 minutes. There’s no need to flip ‘em. Just remove from oven and let cool while you cook the rest of the soup.
In large stockpot, bring sweet potato, onion, garlic and water to a boil. Salt (abt 3/4 tsp) and stir. Reduce heat and allow to remain at a constant simmer until sweet potatoes are tender. Add in cooked cauliflower and divide soup into 2 parts.
Let soup cool and then blend one part soup in blender until very smooth. Combine with second part soup and stir. Salt to taste and warm up over stovetop if needed.


Here's a little side by side comparison, mine is on the left... or I wish it was! Mine is on the right hand side and distinctly less photogenic and kind of messy looking, and the cauliflower on top sank before I took the picture which doesn't help matters!
Nonetheless, it is a really really easy recipe. Has a sweet and mild taste. I added dried mixed herbs to give it a bit of a kick and next time I'd add another clove of garlic, you might want to add a little spice too if you want to! So although it may look like a Pinterest fail, it tasted like a Pinterest win!
