My friend JT liked my post of the White Soup
and decided to make her version with the ingredients she had.
She experimented by par -boiling the vegetables and then slow roasting them in butter and oil.
Into the blender, whiz up and voila Potage.
I cut the vege into large chunks I didn’t want them to be over roasted.
Plus I sautéed the cabbage instead of roasting. I think the flavour is improved this way
So here we go
A lovely soup
I will put on My Net Diary Blogs with all of the calories for those interested.
1/2 Cauliflower 350 gms
1 large potato 235
1 leek white part only 200 gms
2 med parsnips 220 gms
1 med swede 260 gms
2 x stalk of celery 75 gms
1 large onion peeled and quartered 200 gms
1/2 white cabbage 500 gms
20 gms olive oil
50 gms unsalted butter
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
10 gms olive oil
1 tablespoon Stock powder
Cold Water about 2 litres
Cut all the vege except for the cabbage into large chunks
Cover with water
Add salt and bring to boil
Simmer for about 8 minutes, till just starting to get tender
Strain and keep the stock
Pre-heat oven to 160C
Into a roasting dish add butter and 20 gms olive oil
Pop into the oven to heat up
Add the drained vege toss around to coat with oils
Season with Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Into the oven around 50 minutes
After 30 mins take out the leeks and cauliflower before they get too caramelized.
It makes them bitter
And sauté in 10 mls of oil for 5 minutes
Season with Stock powder, Vegeta is good but any chicken stock powder is also good
(Vegeta is Vegetarian and also Gluten...They also make very good Beef and Chicken flavoured stock powder)
Add reserved stock and simmer for about 10 minutes till cabbage is soft
Mix well and into the blender
Whiz till smooth
This amount will take 2 gos in the blender
Back into pot
Taste and adjust seasoning
I found it needed more salt and freshly ground black pepper
I popped some into a plastic container for my daughter to have for her dinner.
We had it for lunch.

Filling and gorgeous.
Oh My friend Phil also made it and he added some spinach.
