Cauliflower Soup topped with Scallops

Cauliflower Soup with Scallops
028

this was an afterthought soup, one that i put together while bread was rising and i was deciding what movie to watch on Netflix. there comes a time in one's life where laziness takes precedence over anything else, even cooking. that time for me is now. right here, right now.

Cauliflower Soup topped with Scallops

a head of cauliflower, rough chopped
2 stalks of lemongrass, cut in half, bruised
an onion, rough chopped
1 garlic clove, banged
salt/pepper to taste
splash of milk or cream
veggie or chicken stock, or water, enough to just barely cover
some scallops
olive oil
splash of lemon

boil the first four ingredients in some stock (i used water) til cauliflower is tender. discard the lemongrass. puree the remaining ingredients to desired consistency. season with salt/pepper. add in a splash of cream or milk, it really does add a richness to the soup, tho if you're minding your waistline, it can be ix-nayed.

meanwhile, clean the scallops and dry properly. season with a bit of salt/pepper. heat up the olive oil in a pan and fry up the scallops, about an minute or so, you don't want it rubbery. when reach desired doneness, splash with some lemon juice. add on top of soup.

done.

currently daydreaming about four day weekends and the month of december.
