A warm bowl of soup was something that my mom would make every day for us when we were growing up, and would say that it is the healthiest part of our meal for the day.  I drifted away a little bit from making a soup every day but every now and then I make sure we eat some in my family. Especially now, during winter season when it’s so cold and gets dark so early,  a warm bowl of soup seems like an excellent idea to have when you return home from work.  You can do it the day before so that you can just warm it up the next day and enjoy that warm and flavorful bowl of goodness. Some people don’t even think about reaching for cauliflower in the market so I hope this recipe will help you change your mind. The roasting process builds up the cauliflower taste and the little bit of prosciutto (which you can substitute with pancetta or bacon) just brings it to another level.  It’s not only healthy but also low in calories and, what’s most important, very tasty. If you get a large head of cauliflower don’t double the liquids immediately but let it puree first and then add it gradually in order not to make it too watery. More »

And that is: marinade the chicken. More »
