- 1 cauliflower (about 650 g or about 7 cups), in florets
- 1 can (540 ml/19 oz) white beans, rinsed and drained
- 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (preferably golden syrup for its delicate flavour)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 cup milk
- ½ cup parmesan, grated
- ¼ tsp nutmeg, grated
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- Put cauliflower, beans, broth, maple syrup, and garlic in a pot. Season with pepper and salt to taste. (Better to add salt at the end of cooking unless you’re using salt-free or home-made broth.)
- Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes or until the tip of a knife easily penetrates the cauliflower.
- Remove from heat. Add the milk, parmesan, and nutmeg. Use a stand or hand blender to purée until smooth. Adjust seasonings to your taste.
- Serve in bowls. Sprinkle with a little smoked paprika.
