Default Roast Cauliflower Soup

Since I'm going to have a wealth of stock this week, I just may try
this. I subscribe to Dr. Ben Kim's weekly e-mail Newsletter and he
often posts some really decent and healthy recipes. I thought I'd share
this one this week as it sounds especially good, as well as being
inexpensive. g I'll skip the spuds tho' and I'd for sure use the
Shallots rather than the onion for flavor. I may even use both:

Roasted Cauliflower Soup Recipe
By Dr. Ben Kim on October 10, 2008

Healthy Soups

This roasted cauliflower soup is surprisingly rich in vitamin C. It's
also rich in indole-3-carbinole, a phytonutrient that can stimulate
cellular detoxification.

Indole-3-carbinole's ability to prevent estrogen dominance is what makes
cauliflower - naturally rich in indole-3-carbinole - an excellent food
choice for cancer prevention, particularly breast cancer prevention.

Enjoy this delicious and nutrient-rich roasted cauliflower soup recipe.

Ingredients:

2 heads cauliflower
2 Yukon gold potatoes, roughly chopped into bite-size pieces
3 garlic cloves
2 shallots (or one large onion)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cups vegetable broth or organic chicken broth
1 cup water
Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cut cauliflower into 1-inch flowerets (about 10 cups). In a large baking
pan toss cauliflower, potatoes, garlic, and shallots with olive oil and
roast in oven for about 25-35 minutes, or until golden.

In a large pot, simmer broth, water, roasted cauliflower and potato
mixture for 20 minutes, or until cauliflower is very tender. Use your
blender to puree soup in batches until smooth and return to pot. Add sea
salt and pepper to taste. Heat soup over low to medium heat until just
heated through.

(Posters note: I'd use a hand blender for ease. I have to wonder if
the Author knows about them?)

Makes approximately 10 cups.

Optional: sprinkle some fresh chopped parsley on top of each bowl for
presentation just before serving.

(Celery leaf might work too for those that like it).

Thanks, Om, that sounds really good.

A countertop blender is better at getting a completely-smooth texture; maybe
that's why the author wrote the recipe that way.

I'd roast carrots with this as well one or 2. For color and a hint of
sweetness. Also herb everthing well before roasting. (whatever herbs go
with carrots and cauliflower. Say tarragon and or rosemary)

And Please God Don't Forget the Garlic. Just a clove or 3. All Roasted
together it would be heaven on a spoon.

I like your suggestions except for the carrots. I don't want that
pale orange color soup, plus I don't want it sweet at all.

Me? Forget the garlic? Not likely. Heh.

It sounds good! But two heads of cauliflower to 4 cups of liquid sounds
like waaaay too much. Even the small heads of cauliflower I've seen lately
were rather large.

I would definitely not make two cauliflower's worth, that's
way too much for just me, I was just going to wing it,
quantities-wise.

Could be. I subscribe to Dr. Ben Kim's Newsletter. Some spam, but a LOT
of really good information so well worth it.

One clove of garlic perhaps...

I'm leery of too much carrot in any "delicate" flavored recipe as they
tend to totally take over. Might add one small carrot.

Shallot is preferable to garlic I think in this case.

YMMV. ;-)

That is rather a lot. :-) One can cut ingredients to their personal use
preference. He's feeding a family of four I think.

I'm staying out of the stock market these days.
