Curry Infused Cauliflower Bisque

0 6
A sublime soup with an array of flavors, this curry infused cauliflower soup is the perfect starter to your romantic meal for two. With each sip taken you will experience the flavors of curry, garlic, cream and truffles, ending with just enough of a pepper kick, showering us with a tease of tastes that blend perfectly together.  The added touch of truffle toasted pistachios as a garnish adds a delicious crunch to this creamy delight.  You can make this a day ahead, storing in a tightly sealed container. You may need to add a little more stock (or water) to thin it out a bit when reheating.
