Making brown butter, or buerre noisette, is one of those techniques that chefs love but home cooks seem to steer clear of because it sounds tricky. Believe me, it’s really not complicated, and the more often you do it, the more confident you become at judging the right time to take the pan off the heat. It’s such an easy way to add a rich nuttiness to this creamy soup, and it smells incredible.
If you warm the stock in a saucepan over a medium heat while you prep the onions, garlic and cauliflower, it will come to the boil quicker when you add it to the soup pan, therefore speeding up the whole process.
