Extra virgin olive oil

8-12 thin slices serrano ham

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry the ham until colored and crispy. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels.

Put the cauliflower in a pan with 2 tbsp olive oil and enough milk to cover. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down and simmer until tender.

Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly. Pour into a blender, blend to preference. Some only do half, some do all, some blend it down to liquid, some leave chunks, etc.)

Season
