Roasted Cauliflower Garlic Soup

Gluten Free Living – 2017

Roasted Cauliflower Garlic Soup is incredibly delicious comfort food especially if you enjoy eating soups. If you’ve not had roasted cauliflower before it’s quite delicious. Roasted cauliflowers works so wonderfully in soups, too, especially when it’s seasoned to perfection like this soup is. I roasted leeks, onions and a whole bulb of garlic and added it to the soup along with thyme, oregano, Italian seasoning, parsley, rosemary and hot sauce. Cheese and half-and-half make it creamy and thick.

Last month I had lunch with a friend who’s on a very restricted diet since she’s trying to heal her gut. She can only eat low glycemic foods, organic dairy or meat, and very few fruits like berries and granny smith apples because of the low sugar content. So I was challenged to come up with something that she could enjoy.

I decided to try roasted cauliflower along with a few other veggies. Had I not been so limited in my veggie selection, I might have added carrots, corn or other veggies. Even still, I chose to keep it pretty simple so she would be able to eat it. I garnished the soup with extra roasted cauliflower, fresh thyme and parmesan cheese. It was quite scrumptious that way. And, more importantly, she loved it!

If you’re looking for a super tasty soup to try out on your family, this is a healthy, clean-eating, gluten free recipe that you should give a try. I guarantee you will love every mouthful.

Because I only pureed part of the soup, it still has quite a bit of texture.
