Roasted Cauliflower Soup

caulisoup2

Cauliflower is becoming more and more popular. Turning a cauliflower head into rice is probably the most popular way to eat it- especially since people are obsessing over low-carb diets. I’m keeping this recipe simple and classic with a twist by turning cauliflower into soup! I know some people prefer to have smooth soups but I like mine to have some texture. Therefore, I didn’t puree it as long in the blender. I also added veggies on top for an extra bite. Cauliflower has about 11 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber. It’s exceptionally high in vitamin C & A. This will pair nicely with my Kale & White Bean Sauteย or my Smoky Chickpea Salad!

Ingredients Roasted Cauliflower

  • 1 medium Cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 shallot, diced
  • 1 large zucchini, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups hemp milk (or any milk)
  • 1 veggie cube*
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, optional

*If you don’t have a veggie cube just use veggie broth instead of the water & the cube.

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Chop the cauliflower into small florets then toss in oil, garlic, salt & pepper.
  3. On a baking sheet, lined with parchment, place the baking tray in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. In a medium pan, add a bit of coconut oil and caramelize the onion. Now add the zucchini and sautรฉ for 5-10 minutes, on medium-low heat.
  5. In a large blender or food processor add the cauliflower, water, milk, the veggie cube and nutritional yeast, if using. Blend until smooth or at desired consistency. Taste for salt. (Note: Adding the liquid may have cooled the soup so you can heat it up for a few minutes if you like).
  6. Add the soup to a bowl, desired amount, and top with the caramelized zucchini & onion.
