Creamy Roasted Garlic & Cauliflower soup


Velvety. Delicious. Veg.

GF. V. SF. NF.

Cauli Soup Bowl

Ingredients:

1 head cauliflower

1 bulb garlic

1 onion (red, sweet, whatever)

1 1/2 cups veggie broth (I use Better than Bouillon - No Chicken Base)

Olive oil to drizzle or spray

Optional 1 Tbsp dairy free butter (or real butter if dairy doesn’t bug your guts) for ultimate smoothness

Salt & pep to taste

 

Da veg

First we roast:

Preheat oven to 400°F

With a sharp knife, cut the top 1/4 off the bulb of garlic, exposing each clove of garlic

Drizzle or spray exposed garlic with a little olive oil

Wrap tightly with foil

Set in the corner of a big foil lined sheet pan

Cut the onion in quarters, removing skin

Add them to your sheet pan, and drizzle with olive oil


Garlic prep

Wash & cut the cauliflower into florets, just so they are roughly the same size

Place on your sheet pan, and drizzle with a little olive oil

Sheet pan veg

Toss the sheet pan with the garlic, onion, and cauli in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until you can easily stick a fork in the cauliflower and your garlic is golden brown


Roasted & ready to blend

Now we blend:

To a blender or food processor add the broth, onions, and cauliflower

Unwrap the garlic and carefully remove from the foil

Take a napkin or kitchen towel and create a barrier between your hand and the root of the garlic

Squeeze the bulb over your blender, forcing out each clove - this should be almost a paste consistency

Add in a few cranks of S&P

Toss in a tablespoon of butter, or omit if you’re trying to watch the fat - BUTT! It will give you a super creamy mouth feel

Blend until super smooth, tasting and tweaking until tasty


Blended soooo smooth

Pour into a bowl & garnish! I love to drizzle a little extra olive oil over the top and add a few extra cranks of black pep


Soup's on!

 

Vicious Variations:

Adjust the amount of broth to make a great sauce or even a mash!


Hate cauliflower? Don't want your house to smell like farts? That's fine. try it with squash, parsnips, potatoes, really any hard veggie. Seriously tasty.
