Number of Servings: 6


    2 cups of water
    2 cups low-salt chicken broth
    1/8 tsp coarsely crumbled saffron threads
    3 tbsp butter
    2 cups chopped onions
    1-1/2 lbs cauliflower cut into 1/2-3/4inch pieces
    3/4 cup half and half
    Thinly slides fresh chives


Can be made a day ahead; cover and refrigerate. Bring to simmer before serving.


Combine 2 cups water and 2 cups low-salt chicken broth in medium saucepan. Bring mixture just to simmer and remove from heat. Add saffron threads; cover and steep for 20 minutes.

Melt 3 tbsp butter in heavy medium pot over medium-low heat. Add chopped onions and saute until very tender but not brown, about 10 minutes. Add cauliflower pieces, stir to coat. Bring to simmer over high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer cauliflower until pieces are tender, about 20 minutes.

Working in batches, puree cauliflower mixture in food processor until smooth. Transfer cauliflower puree to large saucepan. Stir in half and half and bring to simmer. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with fresh chives and serve.
