Roasted Cauliflower & Broccoli Soup

As long as you don’t add extra broccoli (like I did), this soup would probably be really good.  Just use the 2 cups called for & you should be good 🙂

Directions:

  • Combine cauliflower & broccoli.  Coat with olive oil, sprinkle lightly with salt & pepper.
  • Cut the top off the head of garlic & wrap in foil.
  • Place all on a cookie sheet; bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a large stock pot.  Add onion, celery, & carrot.  Saute over medium head for about 10 minutes.
  • Whisk in salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, and flour.  Cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Add wine & water, mixing into flour mixture.  Slowly add chicken broth.
  • Remove garlic cloves from skin & add to pot whole.  Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to medium-low.  Simmer for 10 minutes

  1. I’m excited! I am a fellow Bountiful Basket-er who stumbled upon your blog while doing a random Google search. I grabbed a second head of cauliflower (broccoflower?) this week as an extra for volunteering, and was looking for a soup recipe to use this up with some broccoli! This is perfect.
