Creamy cauliflower soup with fresh herbs and Magimix Cook Expert review

I just made a new BFF. If you’ve been around this blog for a while, you probably noticed I made very little contributions over the past year or so. When I first started the blog 6-7 years ago, I had a 9 to 5 job and plenty of spare time to allocate to hobbies, cooking and writing on the blog. And I loved it heaps. Since I started my own business, and particularly in the past year when things have been quite busy, I have had very little spare time. My meals have been mostly roasted veggies with a side of rice or pulses or grains and a dressing drizzled on top. Either this or I would just eat at my deli 🙂

I have had very little time and only on rare occasions to make beautiful, diverse meals. And I know I know… it doesn’t take long to make a soup. Buuuut when I still had at least a dozen things on my to do list when I got home, it was easier to pop something in the oven and move onto finishing work.

I was so terribly excited to collaborate with Magimix Australia and review their new Magimix Cook Expert. Anything that can help me continue to make beautiful, nourishing, diverse meals is a must try. And let me tell you, it was love at first soup.

What I first loved about this appliance was that it’s easy and straightforward to use. Immediately after unwrapping it and glancing at the manual, I foraged through the fridge to see what I can whip up. A cauliflower, potato and apple later, a soup was decided upon. I have been craving soup and haven’t had one in such a long time.

I chose to make a simple, creamy soup because:

  • it doesn’t matter how you chop the veggies
  • it only requires minimum prep
  • I love creamy soups. Fact.
  • Creamy soups feel like a hug from the inside.

What did I experience with the Magimix on my first try?

  • so easy to use
  • ridiculously silent when in use
  • only 2 minutes of prep time and actual total cooking time
  • it did everything – sauteed the veggies, stirred, cooked them, and blended them at the end, without any interference or input along the way
  • the result was the most beautiful, perfect, silky smooth, velvety soup
  • one pot meal with no extra dishes to wash
  • very easy to clean

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. I will keep you updated on my Magimix adventures. It comes with a great many attachments and features, for it does a great many things! For the time being, I jumped onto the opportunity of letting it help me put my feet up at the end of a busy day, so I only unwrapped the cooking bowl. I cannot wait to explore the processor parts and steamer attachments as well and report back.

So far…. Love at first soup.
