There's nothing better than a warming soup in winter. Super delicious and nourishing, it's like a warm hug for your insides. If you're looking for a change from your standard pumpkin soup or a vegetable soup, this recipe will hit the spot!

- 50ml olive oil
- 1 tsp coarsely chopped dill

1.Heat butter and oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for 2-3 mins.

3. Add cauliflower and cook for a further 5 minutes.
4. Add stock and 250ml water, bring to the boil, and season generously. Simmer for 5-6 minutes. Add lemon juice, and seasoning to taste.
