"This is simple and delicious. The taste is so smooth and creamy most people think this is a fattening soup loaded with cream and potatoes. People are always shocked by how few ingredients are needed."

  1. Place the cauliflower florets into a large bowl of lightly salted water; allow to stand for 20 minutes. Drain well, and arrange on a sheet of heavy aluminum foil on a baking sheet. Spray the olive oil cooking spray evenly on the cauliflower.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  3. Broil the cauliflower until browned, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large soup pot, and cook the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes; stir in the garlic and roasted cauliflower. Pour in the water, season with salt and black pepper, and simmer until all the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Blend the soup in the pot with an immersion hand blender until creamy and smooth.

I love the base for this recipe and added my touches to make it a little heartier. I added broccoli and carrots along with onions and garlic to chicken broth, instead of water. I'm a garlic lo...

This was delicious! I didn't use the olive oil and it was still excellent. Adding curry powder, celery salt and using chicken broth instead of water worked magic. Thanks for a great recipe!

This is fabulous! I tossed the cauliflower with good olive oil (instead of spray) and added a red pepper and sautéed it with the onion. I had only one head of cauliflower but added 4 cups of wa...

The soup gets two stars for fast and easy prep as well as its healthiness. I thought it was very bland and my husband complained that it was slightly bitter. I also found the texture to be almos...
