Roasted Cauliflower Soup
This season is about windy days and chilly nights. We are wrapping ourselves with blankets and scarfs, drinking hot tea and moving heaven and earth to keep away from freezing. A bowl of soup can become the best food on Earth in winter, and this Roasted Cauliflower Soup is exactly what you need! It will help you to stay warm and cozy not only in winter but any time of year.
What we love the most about this recipe is that it is very easy to cook, it is a healthy and hearty dish, and it is a cream soup. It’s texture, and the flavors combination can drive anyone crazy!
You can play with the taste using different infused oils drizzled over your bowl, and the soup will get entirely new flavor notes. Try to combine olive oil with black garlic, parsley, chili or chives. You’ll be surprised how many new delicious combinations you can find!
This Roasted Cauliflower Soup has a very mild taste by itself but accompanied by piquant infused oils, it becomes a symphony of ingredients, with incredibly creamy and delicate texture.
