"When I'm a Duchess," she said to herself (not in a very hopeful tone though), "I won't have any pepper in my kitchen at all. Soup does very well without. Maybe it's always pepper that makes people hot-tempered," she went on, very much pleased at having found out a new kind of rule, "and vinegar that makes them sour-and camomile that makes them bitter-and-and barley-sugar and such things that make children sweet-tempered. I only wish people knew that; then they wouldn't be so stingy about it, you know-" -Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Sometimes the simplest things are the best. Cauliflower, onions, salt, olive oil, goat cheese - it takes so little to make something rich and creamy. Drizzle a 1/2 teaspoon of aged balsamic vinegar over this for a real treat.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup, a recipe from Dr. Gourmet
Place the water in a large pot fitted with a steamer basket over high heat.

When the water is boiling, add the cauliflower and steam for 18 minutes. Remove and let cool.

While the cauliflower is steaming place the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the onion and cook slowly for about 10 minutes, adjusting the heat so that the onions become soft and translucent but do not brown.

Place the onions, salt, and water in a blender and puree until smooth.

Slowly add the cauliflower and puree until smooth.

Add the goat cheese and puree until smooth.

Reheat gently and serve.
