This thick and creamy soup highlights the sweetness of roasted cauliflower and garlic. Make it vegetarian by using vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
Please don't rate the recipe poorly because you didn't like the changes you made to the recipe. I made this soup as a healthy recipe to enjoy for lunch. Some butter, carrots & some freshly grated parmesan cheese would make this taste even better. * I do want to caution others that I used a large head of cauliflower. I would strongly encourage others to reduce the amount of garlic if they are not garlic lovers and the salt should probably be reduced to 1 teaspoon. You can always add more later. I like less broth & more veggies so others may also chose to add more milk & flour if a soupier consistency is desired. A medium sized roasting pan or 13"x9" pan is a better fit than the small roasting pan I noted in the recipe as it allows more room to toss. Jo's Rosemary Bread compliments this meal. (I add garlic powder & grated parmesan cheese to it.) Enjoy! ~Jennie - 13 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
OUTSTANDING! Deserves way more than 5 stars! This is one of the best soups I've tried. If you love garlic and you love cauliflower then you MUST try this recipe. The only suggestion I have is to use a potato masher on the cauliflower after it comes out of the oven,(before you add it to your soup pot.) I used a dry, white wine in place of the sherry and I think the head of cauliflower I had was exceptionally large, so I had to use an extra splash or two of both the milk and the chicken broth. Just use your best judgement to get the desired consistency you prefer. A very BIG thanks to Jennie for submitting this one; it's a definite keeper!!! - 10 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband and I found this recipe extremely good. I did what someone else suggested and cut the salt in half. I wouldn't make any other changes to it. It's perfect the way it is! - 28 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
