Roasted Cauliflower & Garlic Soup

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Hello friends! Can believe August is over? This summer has been super-busy. I must admit to looking forward to the cooler months when things will slow down a bit and we can breathe.

Throughout the summer, the thought of heating up our small house by turning on the oven doesn’t excite me one bit. But as the weather begins to whisper of fall, my interest in cooking is rekindled.

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

My favorite fall/winter supper is soup. Once you know the basic steps for most soups, it’s so easy to customize and create to your preferences. And there’s just something cozy about a bowl of steaming soup.

But on to the soup at hand.

Cauliflower has never been my favorite veggie. On a scale of 1 to beets, it’s about an eight. Then one day, my grandma taught us how to make steamed cauliflower with buttered breadcrumbs. I softened. A little. Then I saw Katie’s recipe for Roasted Garlic & Cauliflower Soup. I caved.

I’m so glad I did. Once roasted, the cauliflower develops a lovely flavor. The hints of celery, thyme and roasted garlic are amazing. You should definitely try this soup, even if you are a cauliflower hater. It just might change your mind!

  1. Hi!
    I’ve been wondering this since you posted the grandma’s cooking lesson “roast beef” originally… how DOES she make the steamed cauliflower with buttered breadcrumbs? I’m hoping this one isn’t a family secret too! I would love to make this side sometime! Thanks!

    In Christ,

    • Dawn: I don’t remember exactly how she does it…she either boiled it or steamed it until tender. Then she cooked some breadcrumbs with butter and put that on top of the cauliflower. I could ask her the next time I see her how she does is. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I made this for dinner last night and it was so, so yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I used to hate cauliflower too. Then one night my mom made it for me roasted on a pan with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, and some capers and I fell in love. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Made this last night when hubby complained of a cold..I knew the garlic would pack a punch of healing energy. My little one and her friend however, gobbled it down and my husband had to get to the pot quicky before it disappeared. What a great recipe. This will def become one of my regulars for fall/winter cooking. Many thanks!

  5. Hi,
    I’m from Armenia, maybe you haven’t heard about my country.
    I was looking for smth. easy and tasty to cook as I’m a beginner cook and I found this soup.
    WOW. This is smth. amazing. So tasty, rich and easy.

  6. I am eating spoonful after spoonful of this lovely soup. It is full of flavor and delicious.
    I did not have any wine so I just settled for extra stock.
    I can never have to much bacon so I made a big batch of crispy streaky bacon, which I munched on while pureeing the soup.
    Thank you for a yummy soup ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Just made this and goodness gracious is it delicious!!

    For anyone wondering, I made a few modifications due to dietary and what-I-had-in-the-pantry restrictions.

    I’m gluten and dairy intolerant and I didn’t have a good substitute for flour, so I just left it out and hoped for the best and had NO problems (even still added some vegetable broth at the end). I also used coconut milk instead of half and half and it’s quite delicious.

    I used red wine instead of white because that’s all I had and I also omitted the bay leaf and the parsley because I didn’t have either of those.

    While I’m sure it will be much better WITHOUT those last three modifications, I made them because I wanted to try the soup now and you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Fabulous recipe and I can’t wait to make it again – I’m pretty sure it’s going to become a winter staple for me.

  9. Okay, your soup was amazing. I make a lot of soup, and I can’t believe how yummy and flavorful Your recipe was. thanks so much for posting it!!

  10. Browsing Pinterest for a soup and BAM! you saved the day…er my week of lunches ๐Ÿ˜‰ Can’t wait to make it this Sunday.

    I saw some posts about dairy intolerance, while I am just watching my fat intake, ive used pureed white beans to thicken soups in the past. Doesnt change the flavor and you get a lil more protien to boot! cheers!

  11. I made this soup last night! It was veryy yummy. I added cayenne, as i like my food spicy ๐Ÿ™‚
    Definetely will make this again…i think i’ll add some chick peas next time!

  12. Thank you, I was looking for a soup to make on Friday that was meat free and this was perfect! Congratulations on your new bundle of joy, she is beautiful!

  13. Do you think it will freeze well? Being only two of us this soup probably would be a “whole lot” but I want to try it. It sounds soooo very delish. Thanks
