Caul-do VerdebyBogre

WHO: Bogre is new to the cooking game. His style? Hitting the ground running. WHAT: A deceptively creamy, comforting bowl of soup. HOW: Roast cauliflower, purée with stock, and do the soup thing. WHY WE LOVE IT: Where potatoes take up residence in the traditional version of this soup, Bogre ingeniously swaps in roasted -- then puréed -- cauliflower. What you get is a richness that's earthy without being heavy, or, the soup we'd be happy to eat every single day.

And a healthy amount of firey mustard greens. (Don't worry -- they'll mellow with the heat.)

Stir them in, simmer just a bit more, and have a bowl at the ready.
