It’s cauliflower season, time to put this cruciferous wonder to work!

There is so much you can do with cauliflower, bake, steam, sauté, or blend into soups.

Cauliflower and all cruciferous vegetables, are great for detoxing, strengthening the immune system, and are very high in fiber.

We invite you to give your body some fall TLC with this beautifully clean looking, and light tasting cauliflower white soup.

Serves: 8-10 cups Prep Time: 5 minutes Total time: 25-30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2-4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • water, enough to reach just below the cauliflower
  • sea salt
  • black pepper

Directions: 

1. Prep: Rinse, and separate your cauliflower into florets. Chop your onion, and mince your garlic.

2. Cook: In a large pot over medium heat add onions and garlic, stir for 2 minutes, than add in a pinch of sea salt. Stir until caramelized, 5-6 minutes more. Once caramelized, add in cauliflower and water. Bring to a boil, then to a simmer. Cover and let cook for 15-20 minutes, or until cauliflower is tender.

3. Blend and serve: Working in batches, add cauliflower mixture to your food processor, and process into a soup texture. If you have an immersion blender, blend directly in the pot. Serve with a sprinkle of sea salt, and a few grinds of pepper. If you are feeling adventurous add in some cheddar cheese and let it melt all in.
