Cauliflower Soup

Portions: 4
Prep time: 15 min

Cooking time: 30 min
Calories per portion: 300

Ingredients:

500g cauliflower cut in florets
1 thinly shipped garlic clove
2 thinly chopped onions
30g olive oil
10g lemon juice
1 cube vegetable stock

100g blanched almonds
300g almond/regular milk
600g water
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Add a bit of the oil to a pot, roast the almonds until golden then set aside.
To the same pot (saves you the cleaning for now 😉 ) add the remaining olive oil and a minute later introduce the onion and garlic mix. Stir until the color gets golden then add the cauliflower heads and mix for a minute or so. Time to add some flavor: add lemon juice, salt, pepper, nutmeg and the vegetable stock (I use a homemade paste, but that’s for another day) then pour the 600g of water. Let it boil and cook on low-medium heat for about 25 minutes (Actual time depends on the size of the cauliflower heads) with the lid covered.

Now that the cauliflower is cooked (stick a fork in one of the heads, it should be smooth by now) add the milk (Almond or regular, both taste great) and let it boil on low heat for 3 minutes.
Bring the hand blender (something like this Braun https://bit.ly/3c3lfdF) and purée the mix.

Tada, the soup is ready! Serve it hot and decorate it with the roasted almonds 🙂

Easter Bunny Cake

Portions: 12
Prep time: 10 min

Baking time: 50 min
Calories per portion: 300

Ingredients:

200g butter
300g flour
4 eggs
20g milk
80g whipping cream

200g sugar
Pinch of Salt
20g baking powder
100g dark chocolate bar

First heat the oven to 180°C. Now using the hand mixer (something similar to –> https://bit.ly/2Xzr1j4) mix butter, flour, eggs, milk, sugar, salt and baking powder at medium speed. Once done, fatten the inside of the mold with some butter, make sure it’s tightly secured then fill 3/4 of it with the mix. Bake for 50 min then remove the molds and place on cooling tray for an hour or so and only then remove the molds. You would want to see a golden color as the below:

The molds can be filled slightly less than shown

The perfect golden color we are looking for

Break the chocolate bar into small pieces. Bring the heavy whipping cream to a boil then add the chocolate chips to it. As soon as the latter melts, remove and use to cover the cake before it thickens. Wait a few minutes for the ganache to cool down, and you are ready to serve.

If you’d like a lighter version, then melt the chocolate using a Bain Marie (basically using a big pot to heat water and placing a smaller bowl inside it to melt the chocolate) and using a brush cover the Easter bunny and the lamb with chocolate – once it cools down, it’s ready to be served. Enjoy and Happy Easter!
