Introduction: Cauliflower Cashew Bisque With Curry Yogurt Sauce

Flavour pairing my favourite way to experiment in the kitchen.

This cauliflower cashew bisque with curry yogurt sauce is perfectly balanced and really pretty. The soft, nutty smoothness of cashews with the sulfur of the cauliflower. The yogurt sauce adds the perfect tang. Also, preparing a sauce for a soup makes you feel like you're on top of things and you know what you're doing.

Besides, it’s so easy.
