“From Foodista: This cauliflower soup is rich and sumptuous. The cauliflower is roasted to a golden hue and made more than fragrant by the garlic that roasts along side it. While simple to make, and comforting in it's flavors, it still has enough punch to impress company. It tastes naughty, but there is very little cream or butter to speak of and the homemade croutons are baked. This is my perfect comfort food.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425º.
  2. Coat cauliflower and garlic in olive oil and roast on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes or until a nice golden brown. Turn once or twice to avoid burning.
  3. Add cauliflower mixture to a pot with chicken stock (or low sodium chicken/vegetable broth if using store bought) and butter and cook for another 20 minutes until very soft.
  4. In a blender, puree cauliflower and some of cauliflower water and cream in batches until very smooth. You can adjust the amount of water to get your desired thickness.
  5. When you are through, keep soup warm, while you make the croutons. For the croutons, butter bread, add fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano and pepper and toast in the 425 degree oven.
  6. Bake until golden brown and crispy at the edges. About 7 minutes.
  7. Cut into bite sized chunks and serve atop the soup.
