It’s been a long, cold winter. Even by Northern California standards, temperatures have been more raw than usual. Mornings greet us with frosted lawns and low hanging fog, and each morning I urge my children to bundle up in warm jackets. To them, the idea of wearing more than a thick sweatshirt is starting to make sense, finally. It only took three months for them to figure that out.
The urge to warm up with a bowl of soup started in early November and hasn’t stopped; I made a big batch of soup for lunch today, in fact. I find myself making soup so often that it takes a gentle reminder from my husband that we’ve been slurping a lot of soup and that chewable food might be a nice change of pace.
While my spring fever gains momentum, my desire for comfort in a bowl continues, and I am excited to share this Creamy Cauliflower & Potato Soup with you. I first made it when temperatures began to dip in November, and it is has proven to be a cozy way to warm up from the chill, time and again. Thick with a puree of cauliflower and potato, it is rich in flavor from pancetta, leeks and a savory clam stock. It is featured today on My Way Home by Wayfair, and I hope it keeps you warm as we head from the biting cold of winter into the nip of early spring.
