Ingredients

  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and ground pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon creme fraiche or sour cream, optional

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Wash the cauliflower and remove the leaves and stems. Remove the core, and then cut up the cauliflower into large slices. Make sure the slices are similar in size so they roast at the same rate in the oven.

In a large bowl, season your sliced cauliflower with a generous drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. The salt here will flavor your soup, so don't be shy. We recommend at least 3 tablespoons of salt or 2 to 3 handfuls of salt. (You may need to adjust salt levels depending on the size of your hands.) Make sure every piece of cauliflower looks coated with oil.

In a large, oven safe pan or roasting dish, spread your cauliflower slices so that every piece is touching the pan. Put in the oven. In 15 minutes, check on your cauliflower and give it a stir. Put back in the oven until the cauliflower is golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes.

In a blender, combine your roasted cauliflower and chicken broth. Blend. (Be sure to hold the lid down with a towel to keep the top from flying off mid-blend.)

In a medium pot or saucepan, bring your soup to a simmering boil. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Stir. Pour into serving bowls.

Add a tablespoon of creme fraiche or sour cream to soup if desired. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note

Roasted cauliflower tastes pretty delicious on its own. That's also a stupidly simple snack.
