Fabulous Roasted Cauliflower Soup Recipe

I loved this recipe but I made a few changes that made it more healthy. I used 5 cupes of chicken broth instead of the 3 and substituted 2 cups of skimmed milk for the 2 cups of heavy cream. It came out very creamy and extremely tasty. It was a smash with my husband. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

I tryed using puree potatoes instead of cream, cup for cup. Instead of having a fatting soup I felt guilty about later, I had one that everyone including my lactose intolorent grandmother loved.

This is a really nice soup! I made a few changes, but the underlying idea was the same. I only had one head of cauliflower and had to use onion instead of shallots because my store didn't have shallots. I also used an entire bulb of garlic. I subbed 1% milk for cream to lighten it up and added a dash of crushed red pepper and a handful of shredded cheddar (i forgot to adjust the milk for less cauli and needed to thicken it up a bit). This is not the most visually appealing soup, but it tastes GREAT! I will reduce the thyme a little next time per personal preference.

I made this soup after I read many reviews. I used 1 head of cauliflower, added 2 potatoes and 2 large carrots, added 7 large cloves of garlic and 3 shallots tossed them all in 1/4 cup EVO, layered on a roasting pan then sprinkled with ground pepper and sea salt and roasted. I upped the chicken stock to 4 and left out the water. I also added 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper. I used 2 cups of 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream. After I blended everything with a hand immersion blender I added 1/2 cup of both freshly grated Asiago & 1/2 cup of Old Cheddar and salt and pepper to taste. Amazing. Garnished it with fresh bacon bits, fresh chives a few pieces of roasted Cauliflower florets and a little of the grated cheese blend. and served it home made buttermilk biscuits (recipe from Allrecipes) Great for this cold rainy fall day.

This was exceptional! I used potatoes in it as another reviewer had suggested and added a small amount of cream at the end. Delicious.

I have made this a couple of times now b/c my BF has declared it his favourite soup (and I make A LOT of soup). Both times I only used one head of cauliflower and added some combination of carrots turnips and potatoes - which is nice b/c then I can use up whatever is in the fridge. Both times I did add 4 cups of broth (no water) and no heavy cream milk or any other substitute. The soup is already thick and rich enough in my opinion.

My wife and I loved this soup. I used half-and-half, and reduced the roasting time to about 20 mins. (I made half the recipe). I also added a little more broth than the recipe called for to get the consistency right. It was absolutely delicious.

This was fantastic. Also added 2 fresh carrots sliced to the roasting pan. (and a few extra cloves of garlic and 1 more shallot)Make sure the cauliflower is nicely browned before blending. Loved it.

Very yummy. Used milk instead of cream. Left some chunks of cauliflower for texture. Also added about 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper to kick it up a notch.

This was OK. I love soups but it just didn't do it for me. I noticed (after making it) that several of the reviewers who raved about it added other things (like carrots). Maybe that's the trick to making it better. I think I'll just stick to straight up roasted cauliflower and make soups out of other things.
