  1. Prep cauliflower and cut into 2cm chunks.
  2. Add Kerrymaid Original into a pan, cook peeled garlic cloves and all of the cauliflower.
  3. Add thyme, let it soften for 5 minutes with the lid on. Add a big pinch of salt.
  4. Add the stock and Kerrymaid Single, place the lid back on and cook for around 20 minutes, until the cauliflower is very tender.
  5. Make the batter for the florets in the usual way. Leave the batter to rest while your soup cooks.
