Fabulous Roasted Cauliflower Soup Recipe
I love making homemade soups in the fall, and this is my new favorite. Serve with crusty rolls.
This simple soup of roasted cauliflower is so smooth and creamy, you won't believe it's dairy- and potato-free!
This soup highlights the sweetness of roasted cauliflower and garlic. Serve this on its own for a quick lunch or with salad and bread for a satisfying dinner. Make it vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
I tweaked the recipe a bit. Added a large whole carrot and some diced red onion to roasting pan. Roasted 30 minutes as indicated. I sauteed some sweet onion (about 1/3 of a large onion) in olive oil and butter, and added cauliflower, shallots, carrots and red onion to the pot. Used fresh thyme because I had it on hand in my garden (yes in December in MICHIGAN my Thyme plant is still alive!) Used 2 cups chicken broth and 1/2 cup water. Added a dash of nutmeg. I made a roue instead of fooling with a food processor, and mashed the cauliflower with a potato masher (just as I do when I make cream of broccoli). Very versatile soup, and loved the creamy flavor!
This delicious roasted cauliflower soup with lots of garlic is hearty and healthy--potato adds body, turmeric provides color, and almonds give it a nice crunch.
I just happened to make chicken broth that morning so I used homemade chicken broth in this recipe which enhanced the flavor. I added about 4 more garlic cloves which also gave great taste to this soup. Needs a little salt but my husband and I LOVED it! Great recipe!
I followed the recipe exactly and it was fantastic! My family said that it is now their favorite soup!
Made half a recipe and sure wish I had made the whole recipe. This was absolutely delicious! I left out the thyme and bay leaf (forgot the first, didn't have the second) but want to add that next time. I did throw in a handful of grated cheese. Will definitely make again.
