Ingredients

  • Cauliflower- 1 head prepared as described above. Remove the outer leaves and the stem. Then break off the floret from the head. You should yield about seven to eight cups of florets from the cauliflower for this recipe from that cauliflower head.
  • Olive Oil– 2 tablespoons.
  • Onion- 2 cups chopped. That is about one medium sized onion. Garlic- 2 cloves chopped or minced.
  • Soup Stock– 5 to 5 ½ cups depending on how thick you want your soup to be. Chicken stock or vegetable stock work best in this recipe. Seasonings as desired. This can include Italian Seasonings Salt, and/or Pepper. Mediterranean Diet Seasoning Blend.

Instructions

  • Prepare your cauliflower as indicated above. You should yield between seven and eight cups. Set the cauliflower aside.
  • Use a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook the onion in the olive oil until it becomes translucent (three to four minutes). The stir in the garlic and continue to cook for another minute or two for the garlic to become soft.
  • Next, add the soup stock and bring the soup to a boil and then cover and bring the heat down to a simmer. It should take about 15-18 minutes for the cauliflower to become tender. Then turn the heat off.
  • For the next step we will need to blend the soup to get it to a good consistency since the cauliflower needs to be ground up. You can use an immersion blender. Another option is to use a regular, yet sturdy, blender and process the soup in batches. This is a good time to add any seasonings as desired to the soup.
  • Transfer the soup to a container, cover, and refrigerate for at least five hours or freeze. Optionally, you can simply serve the soup warm.

Recipe Notes

In my tips mentioned above I suggested using heavy cream or milk in lieu of some of the soup stock. I also suggested maybe adding mashed potatoes to the soup as a thickener.
There are some standard methods of thickening soup that you can try as well.
Adding flour or cornstarch are commonly used as thickeners in soup.
I suggest stirring in a small amount at a time (1-2 teaspoons perhaps), and giving it some time to thicken the soup before adding more.
