Tips/Hints:  Substitute the cauliflower with broccoli if preferred.

Adjust the quantities of chillies and garlic to your own taste. I like strong flavours so some people may find the above quantities excessive. It also depends on the type of chilli as to its heat. I used 'Superchilli' which is slightly on the spiteful side.

This recipe is ideal for using up any odd bits of cheese in your fridge and I added a mixture of Meldon (Devon) and Lake District Mature (Cumbria). Parmesan, Beaufort or a vintage Cheddar would also be ideal.

I love the sound of this JB. I like cauliflower soup but always feel it needs something to boost it.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
