I'm not gonna lie. I was pretty skeptical when I came across this crazy simple recipe for cauliflower soup.

But then I remembered how much I loved Smitten Kitchen's crazy simple tomato sauce and decided to give this a try.

And I'm so glad I did.

It's fresh and delicious, and vegan and gluten-free and totally friendly for every diet I can think of! WOOT!

  • Cauliflower soup3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion (6 ounces), sliced thin
  • 1 head very fresh cauliflower, about 1-1/2 pounds
  • Salt, to taste
  • 5 1/2 cups hot water, divided
  • Extra virgin olive oil, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Warm the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Sweat the onion in the olive oil over low heat without letting it brown for 15 minutes.
  2. Add the cauliflower, salt to taste, and 1/2 cup water. Raise the heat slightly, cover the pot tightly and stew the cauliflower for 15 to 18 minutes, or until tender. Then add another 4 1/2 cups hot water, bring to a low simmer and cook an additional 20 minutes uncovered.
  3. Working in batches, purée the soup in a blender to a very smooth, creamy consistency. Let the soup stand for 20 minutes. In this time it will thicken slightly.
  4. Thin the soup with 1/2 cup hot water. Reheat the soup. Serve hot, drizzled with a thin stream of extra-virgin olive oil and freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Enjoy!
