The DVD edition of
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring



1 kg cauliflower, chopped roughly
4 cups chicken stock
1 medium onion, chopped roughly
3 bay leaves
sprig fresh mint
1 cup skim-milk powder
1 tablespoon snipped chives

This basic soup recipe is a very good standby. By changing the vegetable and the accompanying herbs, you can have an amazing variety of light, yet filling and comforting soups - creamy, but without cream. Make sure you use a well flavored chicken stock.



1. Place all ingredients except milk powder and chives in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer 12-15 minutes, or until cauliflower is tender. Or microwave on High for 10 minutes.

2. Remove bay leaves and mint. Purée soup in food processor or blender, adding milk powder. Reheat. Serve in deep soup howls and sprinkle with chives.
