Tag Archives: roasted broccoli and cauliflower soup

With all the cold weather we’ve been having here in the Northeast we’ve been enjoying a lot of soup! Recently, I have some broccoli and cauliflower in the refrigerator, and decided to make a roasted broccoli-cauliflower soup. Don’t be put off by the color, adding the roasted broccoli to the cauliflower gave it a darker green white color, but this roasted broccoli-cauliflower soup is hearty and delicious. Perfect to enjoy on a cold snowy day!Roasted Broccoli-Cauliflower Soup

 

Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup

 

Ingredients:

 

8 Cups of Cauliflower and Broccoli, cut into small pieces

1 head of garlic

3 Tbsp. Olive oil

1 onion, chopped

1 carrot, peeled and chopped

1 rib of celery

2 tsp. Thyme

4 Cups of homemade chicken broth

1 tsp. Salt

1 Cup of milk

 

Directions:

 

Preheat your oven to 425. Toss the broccoli and cauliflower with olive oil to coat, about 1 tablespoon. Place the pieces on a large baking sheet and roast for 20-30 minutes or until lightly golden.Roasted Broccoli-Cauliflower Soup

 

To roast the garlic cut the top off the garlic and wrap in aluminum foil, before sealing the foil drizzle the top with a tablespoon of olive oil. Seal the top and place in the baking pan with the broccoli and cauliflower. The garlic may take twice as long to roast.

 

While the vegetables are roasting heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the onion and cook until soft. Add the carrot, celery, thyme, stock and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer. Add the broccoli and cauliflower and simmer for another twenty minutes. After the garlic is done roasting and has cooled, squeeze the head and add the cloves to the soup pot.

 

Use your immersion blender and puree the soup for a minute until completely smooth. Add the milk and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.

 

The flavors of this Roasted Broccoli-Cauliflower Soup intensify after a day. Serve with bread and a salad and you’ve got a dinner! I’m sure this soup would freeze well but we managed to enjoy for several lunches and didn’t have any to put in the freezer.Roasted Broccoli-Cauliflower Soup
