Pinterest Wednesday - Great Recipe for Cauliflower Soup

Thank you to Closet Cooking for these fabulous recipe for Cauliflower soup.  I pinned this earlier in the week and was so excited to make it because I had gotten cauliflower in my Washington Green Grocer order.  I made it in prep for Hurricane Sandy (we faired well considering and never lost power) and it turned out delicious.  I've included the recipe below.  It's the perfect comfort food for fall weather.  For a lower calorie option I'm going to make it without the milk and see how it turns out.  I think it will be just as good.


1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets
2 tablespoons oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
3 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups aged white cheddar, shredded
1 cup milk or cream
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Toss the cauliflower florets in the oil along with the salt and pepper and arrange them in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
  2. Roast the cauliflower in a preheated 400F oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.
  3. Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat.
  4. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add the garlic and thyme and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
  6. Add the broth and cauliflower, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
  7. Puree the soup until it reaches your desired consistency with a stick blender.
  8. Mix in the cheese, let it melt and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Mix in the milk and remove from heat.
