Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Rosemary Roasted Croutons
Course: Brunch, Main Course, Side Dish, Soup
Another great NY Times seasonal vegan soup - easy to make and the addition of rosemary roasted croutons adds a rich taste and the sprinkle of lemon oil and fresh zest adds the perfect touch!
- 2 Tbsp Salute Santé! Grapeseed Oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 quart broth, chicken or veggie
- 1 head Cauliflower, cored and broken into florets
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
- Freshly grated zest of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup Salute Santé! Rosemary Oil
- Salute Santé! Lemon Grapeseed Oil
- 2 cups diced rustic bread
- 2 Tbsp Salute Santé! Rosemary Oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
- In a heavy pot or Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons Salute Santé! Grapeseed oil over medium-low. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. (Be careful not to let the garlic scorch!)
- Add the stock, cauliflower, salt and pepper, and bring to a boil over high. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer until the cauliflower is tender when pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.
- Working in batches, carefully transfer the vegetables, stock and ¼ cup rosemary oil to a blender and blend on high until creamy. Add more rosemary oil to taste, and blend to combine. Return the soup to the pot and bring to a simmer. If the soup seems thin, let it simmer for 5 to 10 minutes to reduce slightly. (Remember: The soup will continue to thicken as it cools.) Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Serve hot. Garnish each serving with a swirl of lemon oil, a few croutons, and a sprinkle of lemon zest. The soup will thicken as it sits; add more stock as necessary when reheating.
- In a skillet, heat the Salute Santé! Rosemary oil over medium. Add the bread cubes, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, and cook, tossing often, until toasted all over, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the croutons to a plate or board to cool.
