This simple soup of roasted cauliflower is so smooth and creamy, you won't believe it isn't loaded with cream and potatoes. People are always shocked by how few ingredients are needed.
Just tried this tonight. Really very good. I did modify the recipe a little and used vegetable broth instead of water for a richer flavor. I've been looking for more nutritious, lower calorie recipes, and this really fits the bill. We had this soup with fresh pitas and red pepper hummus for a nice light supper. Thanks for posting it! Will definitely make again. - 19 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This soup does come out a little bland and there is far more olive oil than needed. I put the cauliflower in a bowl with garlic cloves, sprayed it and added salt, pepper and some curry powder before roasting. Then instead of frying onions in oil, I boiled onions, celery and a carrot in vegetable broth. After that was mainly cooked, I added the roasted cauliflower to the broth for about 10 more minutes to make sure that it was well cooked for blending. Added a wee bit of cheddar to each bowl when serving. Yummy. It doesn't hurt to boil veggies in water, if you are going to eat the water too!! - 19 Jan 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a great recipe as-is. As originally created it is wonderful but a little bland for my taste, so I did modify the recipe a little to my likes, I added 1 yellow bell pepper, I used white pepper vs black pepper for appearance purposes and I like the taste better of white pepper. I also added some curry powder and celery salt. Instead of using chicken stock I used the water and added chicken granules for the basic same effect. I also added some fried tofu garnishes as well. This put the soup over the top in my book. - 26 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
