  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). In a large bowl, toss cauliflower pieces with olive oil, garlic and shallots. Spread out in a roasting pan or baking sheet with sides.
  2. Roast in the preheated oven until toasted and tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. When the cauliflower is done, transfer to a soup pot and pour in the chicken broth and water. Season with thyme and the bay leaf and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
  4. Puree the soup in the pot using an immersion blender, or transfer to a blender and puree in batches, then return to the pot. Stir in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Heat through before serving but do not boil.

I loved this recipe but I made a few changes that made it more healthy. I used 5 cupes of chicken broth instead of the 3 and substituted 2 cups of skimmed milk for the 2 cups of heavy cream. It came out very creamy and extremely tasty. It was a smash with my husband. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

This was OK. I love soups, but it just didn't do it for me. I noticed (after making it) that several of the reviewers who raved about it added other things (like carrots). Maybe that's the trick to making it better. I think I'll just stick to straight up roasted cauliflower and make soups out of other things.

I tryed using puree potatoes instead of cream, cup for cup. Instead of having a fatting soup I felt guilty about later, I had one that everyone including my lactose intolorent grandmother loved.

This was exceptional! I used potatoes in it as another reviewer had suggested and added a small amount of cream at the end. Delicious.

This is a really nice soup! I made a few changes, but the underlying idea was the same. I only had one head of cauliflower and had to use onion instead of shallots because my store didn't have shallots. I also used an entire bulb of garlic. I subbed 1% milk for cream to lighten it up and added a dash of crushed red pepper and a handful of shredded cheddar (i forgot to adjust the milk for less cauli and needed to thicken it up a bit). This is not the most visually appealing soup, but it tastes GREAT! I will reduce the thyme a little next time per personal preference.

My wife and I loved this soup. I used half-and-half, and reduced the roasting time to about 20 mins. (I made half the recipe). I also added a little more broth than the recipe called for to get the consistency right. It was absolutely delicious.

I have made this a couple of times now b/c my BF has declared it his favourite soup (and I make A LOT of soup). Both times I only used one head of cauliflower, and added some combination of carrots, turnips, and potatoes - which is nice b/c then I can use up whatever is in the fridge. Both times I did add 4 cups of broth (no water) and no heavy cream, milk or any other substitute. The soup is already thick and rich enough in my opinion.

This was fantastic. Also added 2 fresh carrots, sliced, to the roasting pan. (and a few extra cloves of garlic and 1 more shallot)Make sure the cauliflower is nicely browned before blending. Loved it.
