This week’s recipe is inspired by one of the dishes I tried recently at Pluvio in Ucluelet. My version is much simpler I’m sure, but gets deep flavour from roasting the cauliflower and stirring in a little hazelnut oil at the end adds a nutty richness. (Below a pic of the delicious Pluvio version which was garnished with local sidestriped shrimp-HEAVEN!)This soup is a perfect starter but also a light lunch or dinner. I served mine garnished with homemade croutons (crispy outside, soft inside), parsley and fresh hazelnuts grown right here in Campbell River. It is equally good made vegan by using nut milk and veggie stock instead of dairy and chicken stock. Enjoy my friends 🙂

A simple and easy dessert with a cake that takes under 30 minutes to make and bake. The strawberries and rhubarb are gently cooked with a little sugar and thickener to create an incredibly luscious filling. Topped with lightly sweetened whipped cream flavoured with lavender syrup or vanilla, this is a crowd pleaser.
