Directions

Step One: Roast Cauliflower

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Wash cauliflower and spread in single layer on parchment paper on baking sheet.

Mix first amounts of oil, lemon juice, and garlic in a small bowl.  Drizzle over cauliflower and bake for 30 minutes until soft. (This step can be done a day in advance and refrigerated until use).

Step 2: Make Soup

While cauliflower is roasting, saute onion and garlic in extra virgin olive oil in a medium pot until onion is soft and fragrant.

Squeeze in lemon juice and add chicken stock.

Heat soup over medium heat, being careful not to boil.

Add roasted cauliflower.

Using an immersion blender, blend until soup is smooth.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve garnished with some croutons, a pinch of dried or fresh parsley, and Parmesan cheese (optional).

Makes 4 servings.

*If you don’t have access to an oven, saute chopped cauliflower with onion until soft using juice from 1 to 2 lemons to your liking.

**You can remove some of the cooked cauliflower and cut into smaller pieces and retun back to pureed soup for added texture.

***A bit of cream can be added for flavor and smoothness.
