Ingredients

Florets

Method

1.To make the soup, cut the cauliflower into large chunks, including the thick core.
2.Heat the olive oil in a medium to large saucepan, and sauté the onion and garlic gently, until softened but not coloured. Add in the cauliflower and stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the cauliflower is soft − about 15-20 minutes. Use a stick blender (or similar) to purée the soup to a smooth consistency. Taste, then add salt and pepper, if needed. Keep it warm while you make the fritters.
3.In a large bowl, whisk the flours, turmeric, salt and water. Heat enough oil for deep frying in a small saucepan to medium-hot. Stir the florets into the batter to coat, draining any excess, then fry in batches until crispy. Sprinkle with salt.
4.Serve up bowls of soup, sprinkled with chives and paprika, alongside the fritters.
