Stop wasting those vegetables you forget you had..

What do you do when there's a 1/4 cauliflower starting to go grey on the edges in your fruit drawer?

Make soup!

Cauliflower Soup
Serves 2


1/4 cauliflower, any yucky bits trimmed off and chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 small onion, sliced
small handful of cashew nuts (optional - I just have some)
2 cups chicken stock (I use Massel Chicken Style)
Spoonful of chilli sauce (to taste(
Pepper (to taste)
About 1 tsp each of ground cumin and turmeric
1/2 red capsicum (or whatever colour you like) diced
Handful of frozen peas

Spring onions for garnish


Fry onion, garlic, cashews and cauliflower in a tiny bit of oil until it starts to soften. Add capsicum, spices and a little bit of stock (about 1 cup). Cook for a little while.

Transfer into a blender. Blend until desired consistency is reached.

Put it back into the saucepan and slowly heat back up. Put peas in around here. Add more stock until it gets to desired thickness.

Serve with garlic bread and garnish with spring onion!
Yum :) That's what we did for lunch today. It would work with any vegetable-on-the-way-out really. You can always cook up the vegetable and freeze it, to use later on. It should keep for a few months.

Anyway, we may soon be able to add another kitty to our little family!
(This is Bob)

I am now employed! Granted I don't start work until my school holidays, but that little bit of extra money I'll be earning will be enough to help care for another cat. We just want our Bob to have a friend :)

(Though I caught her beating up the neighbour's kitten the other day. A KITTEN! Mean bitch. :P we will have to introduce them slowly I think.)
