Broccoli Cauliflower Soup with Dubliner Cheese
Dubliner is a robust aged cow’s milk cheese from West Cork, Ireland with a texture similar to a cheddar. It has nutty, sharp, sweet flavors that come from the milk of Irish grass-fed cows.
Here, the ubiquitous broccoli cheese soup is taken to another level – adding another vegetable profile – cauliflower, and creamy earthy white beans plus Irish cheese for a St. Paddy’s Day celebration!
The silky smooth texture is achieved by the action of a high-performance blender. It is that velvety texture that makes the soup so extraordinary. It could easily be served naked…
…but the blank green canvas begs for something jazzy. Queue up a range of garnishes such as micro greens, super-thin radish, chili oil, shredded cheese, and even a creamy shamrock! Erin go bragh.

Cauliflower and Aged Gouda Soufflé
These delightful soufflés are perfect for a springtime luncheon! 36 month-aged Gouda from the Netherlands adds nutty, butterscotch flavors and an interesting salt crystal crunchy texture. This flavorful cheese pairs well with a full-bodied complex Alsatian Pinot Gris.
The soufflés are super easy to prepare, and bake up to a puffed golden brown in 35 minutes. Served with a pretty side salad, they make a lovely light lunch…or easily double the recipe and serve them on a platter as part of a buffet because, as a bonus, the soufflés hardly deflate so they are excellent for entertaining.

Cauliflower Velvet Soup
Cheddar, Crispy Rice, Chili Oil, and Chive Garnish
The silky smooth texture is achieved by the addition of cannelini beans and the action of a high-performance blender. Tasty, oh yes, but it is that velvety texture that makes the soup so extraordinary. It could easily be served naked…
…but the cream-colored blank canvas begs for something jazzy, cheesy, toasty, spicy, crunchy, and green. Queue up cheddar, crispy rice, toasted sesame chili oil, and chives.

Red Lentil Spaghetti with Cauliflower Rosa Sauce
Blistered Tomatoes, Arugula
This is THE pasta dish for everyone. Not only is it wholesome and delicious – it is gluten-free, vegan, high protein, high fiber, lower carb, clean, fresh and fabulous. My friends at Explore Cuisine are introducing a spaghetti made of red lentils. This spaghetti has a texture similar to traditional spaghetti. And it pairs wonderfully with my vegan Cauliflower Rosa sauce. Parma Rosa is a pasta sauce typically made with tomatoes, cream, and Parmesan. Here, I substitute cauliflower and olive oil for the cream and cheese, and roast the tomatoes in the oven with garlic for a deeper flavor. The result is a lower-cholesterol sauce that is full of vegetable nutrition and is super-satisfying. For everyone.
