Probably because of the weather and the availability of cauliflower in my refrigerator the idea of this soup stuck with me long after my first peruse of 'ad hoc'. Though my husband has made a couple of the recipes from the latest addition to our cookbook collection, here is my first.
Cream of Cauliflower soup with...(crispy beets).
I made it as per Keller's instructions except for the beet garnish; that seemed way too complicated for a weeknight dinner. Instead we used sautéed chanterelles leftover from the previous night's meal.
Along with smashed potatoes, freshly baked rolls and an ample salad this was a substantial weeknight family-style meal.
