Roasted Cauliflower and Aged White Cheddar Soup April 2, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

The last of my soup and sandwich kick. I came across this recipe and liked that it wasn’t the traditional broccoli cheese soup.  The soup was very tasty and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I probably could have blended it more but I enjoyed the chunky style.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups aged white cheddar, shredded
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Toss the cauliflower florets in the oil along with the salt and pepper and arrange them in a single layer on a large baking sheet.

Roast the cauliflower in a preheated 400F oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat, add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Add the garlic and thyme and saute until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the broth, deglaze the pan, add the cauliflower, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.

Puree the soup until it reaches your desired consistency with a stick blender.

Mix in the cheese, let it melt without bringing it to boil again.

Mix in the milk, season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
