- Onion- I recommend a sweet onion for this
- Garlic- finely mine the garlic

- Olive oil
- Seasonings- thyme, turmeric, fennel seeds, cayenne pepper, nutmeg. I don't recommend leaving out any of these seasonings for optimal flavor.
How to make this soup
Full directions can be found in the recipe card below.
Start by breaking the cauliflower into florets. Rinse the florets with cold water and pat dry with clean kitchen towel or paper towels.
Place florets in mixing bowl and toss with olive oil and chopped onion. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread the mixture out on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in preheated oven till lightly browned.
Remove from oven and set aside. Meanwhile heat olive oil in large soup pan or dutch oven along with finely chopped garlic.
Cook till fragrant a minute and add remaining seasonings. Stir in roasted cauliflower and onion, vegetable broth and bring mixture to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer. Remove from heat and then carefully blend with an immersion blender.
Serve immediately or allow to cool thoroughly and store in covered airtight container in the fridge for up to four days.
Can I freeze cauliflower soup?
Yes! You can easily freeze this soup in freezer safe ziplock bags for 3-4 months. Just make sure you allow the soup to thoroughly cool before freezing.
Thaw in fridge overnight and heat the next day on stovetop.
