Homemade Roasted Cauliflower Soup, Harrowstyle

2 cauliflower heads chopped into small florets.
Grapeseed or other neutral oil
Salt and pepper

One white onion diced.
One rib of celery diced.
2 carrots grated or diced.
3 cloves of garlic minced.
3 quarts of chicken (or vegetable broth if you are vegan.)
1/2 teaspoon of salt. (If your broth is heavily salted, you can leave this out. )
1/2 teaspoon pepper.
One teaspoon of fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme.
1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
1/2 teaspoon of cumin.
1/4 teaspoon coriander.
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (sub 3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast for vegan.)

Pre- heat oven to 400°. 

Mix 2 cauliflower with grape seed, avocado or any neutral oil of your choice. Add, salt and pepper to taste. Spread on a baking sheet and roast for 40 minutes or until cauliflower is well brown with crispy smaller bits.

While cauliflower is roasting. Add some oil to bottom of soup pot, add onion, celery, carrots and garlic until translucent.  Add 2 quarts of broth (reserve extra quart for thinning if need be.) spices and nutritional yeast or parmesan.

When cauliflower is done (set aside a few florets out for garnish later) add them to the pot and use an immersion blender to blend well. Leave on low heat until you are ready to serve.

Serve with set aside roasted cauliflower florets, almond slices. I also caramelized some red onion with tomatoes for garnish as well. But, that’s because I had leftovers in the refrigerator from another meal. 

(This recipe is a hybrid of the and cauliflower soup recipes.)
