Servings 4 people


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 sticks celery finely sliced
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds crushed
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 potato peeled and diced
  • 1 cauliflower broken up into florets
  • 1 l vegetable stock


  • Heat a large saucepan or casserole dish, pour in the olive oil, then add the onion, celery, chilli and coriander seeds.
  • Season to taste then cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until the onion has turned silky soft and translucent. Add the garlic and potato and cook for a further few minutes, stirring to coat the potato in oil before finally adding the cauliflower and enough stock or water to cover.
  • Simmer the broth until the cauliflower is completely tender. Whizz up with a stick blender and taste to check the seasoning, adding more salt and pepper if you think it needs it.
