Cauliflower Potato Soup

The Community Kitchens resumed activities in September.  The first kitchen to kick start is the Senior Cooking Club at South Arm Community Center.


Minoo and Marian led the first kitchen. Marian will be in-charged of the Senior Cooking Club for the next 4 weeks as I was told. The recipes for this kitchen were sourced by Marian. The first recipe was Cauliflower Potato Soup.

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups cubed potatoes, about 5 medium potatoes

  • 1/2 cauliflower, cut into flowerets
  • 6 cups of water or chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup cream or soy milk, optional

However, this step is not necessary.
