- 1 large head of cauliflower
- 1 white or yellow onion
- 3–4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil, or olive oil
- 1 teaspoons cumin
- 1/2 teaspoons coriander
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 4 cups vegetable broth, or more for a thinner consistency
- roasted cauliflower florets
- toasted almond slices
- Preheat your oven to 425F (220C).
- Use a large knife to cut the cauliflower head in half through the stem, then quarters. Remove the florets from the quarters by slicing out the stem at a diagonal. Cut any large florets into small pieces.
- Add the cauliflower florets to a baking sheet. Drizzle with avocado oil or olive oil and add the cumin, coriander, salt and pepper.
- Use your hands to mix everything together on the baking tray.
- Slice the onion in half, leaving on the outer skin. Rub a little oil on the cut side, then place the onion halves cut side down on the baking sheet.
- Use a knife to slice one end off the unpeeled garlic cloves. This just makes it easier to squish them out after they’ve baked. Lay them on a piece of aluminum foil, drizzle with a little oil and wrap them in the foil.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges of the cauliflower florets start to turn golden.
- Save a few of the prettiest florets for garnish. Then transfer the remaining cauliflower to a high-powered blender. Remove the outer skin of the onion and the garlic cloves and add to the blender as well.
- Pour the vegetable broth into the blender. Blend on high for one minute. If you’d like a thinner consistency, just add more broth or water.
- To serve, add the roasted cauliflower soup to a bowl and top a couple roasted cauliflower florets, toasted almond slices and fresh thyme.
