Tips For Making Polish Cauliflower Soup

Cauliflower Should Be Cooked Al Dente.

Polish cauliflower soup tastes best with crispy cauliflower. That’s why you should add it at the end and let it rest in a hot soup for a few minutes until it’s cooked.

Use Noodles Instead Of Potatoes If You Want.

The soup can be served with noodles instead of potatoes. Cook the noodles separately or throw them into the hot soup and wait for a while until they become soft.

Blend The Soup If You Want.

When you blend the soup, you will get cauliflower cream soup. Serve it solo or with croutons.

Add Garlic And Onion If You Like.

To make the soup richer, you can add the chopped onion and 3 garlic cloves. Cook them with other veggies until soft or fry them with butter first.
