Creamy Roasted Cauliflower & Red Pepper Soup
Cauliflower is such an amazing vegetable, and my new favorite way to eat it is as a Roasted Cauliflower Soup. Roasting cauliflower brings out a caramelized sweetness that you don’t get from eating cauliflower raw, and when you combine with roasted onions and red peppers, you get a warm and comforting soup that you can eat all winter long.
Cauliflower not only tastes good, it’s really good for you. Cauliflower is a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous family of vegetables, it is anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich, and may boost both your heart and brain health. Eating cauliflower will provide your body with impressive amounts of vitamin C, vitamin k, beta-carotene, and much more while supporting healthy digestion and detoxification. Combined with the vitamin E and C you get from the red bell peppers, this soup is a nutritional power soup!
Take advantage of the great sale on cauliflower at Safeway to make this Roasted Cauliflower & Red Pepper Soup for dinner this week. You may even want to buy two cauliflower heads and just eat the roasted cauliflower with onions as a side dish! So delicious!
Roasted Cauliflower & Red Pepper Soup
Combine delicious caramelized roasted cauliflower and onions with roasted red peppers and fresh herbs to create a flavorful and comforting soup that the whole family will love.
- 1 large head cauliflower cut into florets, rinsed & dried
- 2 cloves garlic grated
- 1 large sweet onion chopped
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- 1 Tbs chopped fresh rosemary
- 1 tsp ground paprika
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 8 oz roasted red peppers drained (from a jar)
- 3 cups vegetable broth
Preheat oven to 400º.
On a baking sheet, add cauliflower florets and toss with onion, garlic and olive oil. Sprinkle salt, rosemary and paprika, then toss again. Arrange in a single layer and bake for 40 minutes, tossing halfway through. Cauliflower should be tender and caramelized after roasting.
In a blender or food processor, add vegetable broth, red bell pepper and all but 3/4 cup of the cauliflower mixture. Blend on medium to high speed until mixture is smooth and creamy.
Add mixture to a medium saucepan and scoop the rest of the roasted cauliflower. Heat on low, just until warmed throughout. Pour into bowls and serve.
