  • 1 large head cauliflower (about 2 pounds), cut into bite-size florets
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Fine sea salt
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Optional Garnish: 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, chives and/or green onions


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. On a baking sheet, toss the cauliflower with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until lightly and evenly coated in oil. Arrange the cauliflower in a single layer and sprinkle lightly with salt. Bake until the cauliflower is tender and caramelized on the edges, 25 to 35 minutes, tossing halfway.
  3. Once the cauliflower is almost done, in a soup pot, warm the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat until it simmers. Add the onion and ¼ teaspoon salt. Stirring occasionally until the onion is softened and turning translucent, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, about 30 seconds, then add the broth.
  5. Transfer the remaining cauliflower to the pot. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat as necessary to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, to give the flavors time to meld.
  6. Once the soup is done cooking, remove the pot from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes. Then, carefully transfer the hot soup to a blender, working in batches if necessary.
  7. Add the butter and blend until smooth. Add the lemon juice and nutmeg and blend again. Add additional salt, to taste and blend. 
  8. Serve warm with your favourite garnish and enjoy!
