“Cauliflower Soup With Orzo & Shrimp Salad” < Click here to see all pictures and Cooking Instructions > > At first I had planned to make a whole-baked cauliflower “Mornay“, but then I decided to prepare something a bit more exiting and I came up with this Beauty 🙂
I actually had it twice –
The first time, (inside, with the a/c blazing as usual) freshly prepared, with the slightly warm salad added to the piping hot soup .
The second time, (outside on the porch in the hot sun) both salad and soup chilled and refreshing.
Both versions were very tasty and satisfying, absolutely fit to be added to my list of all time-favorite soups.
Note: In order to be perfect, the soup must be blended until perfectly smooth and silky. > Bon Appetit ! Life is Good ! > > >
> > I am not sure if I should call the this dish “Tostadas”, “Shrimp Salad” or “Shrimp Cocktail”.
It is actually all of the above, so pick the name that best suits you 🙂
All I know is that this was a great dinner after a long day at work , followed by a few hours of running errand’s.
Since I was very hungry and it was already late when I got home, something quick and light was appropriate. After all, at 3.00 am the alarm will sound again and I’ll have to be ready for another long, hard day. I already have started to have my breakfast and lunch according to the “Hans’Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” Plan, which will start in full on Monday, January 19th. If you are interested, you might want to go to “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” for more details. These “Tostadas”, “Shrimp Salad” or “Shrimp Cocktail” would be a typical example of a dinner Item on my monthly “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan. > Bon Appetit ! Life is Good ! > >
