CREAMY ROASTED CAULIFLOWER CHOWDER


The temperature has cooled off and fall is here. There is lots of fabulous food at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market. Give this hearty soup a try, all of the vegetables can be purchased at the market.
CREAMY ROASTED CAULIFLOWER CHOWDER
yield: SERVES 6  prep time: 10 MINUTES
cook time: 45 MINUTES  total time: 55 MINUTES
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 large head of cauliflower, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (can use gluten-free flour)
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans vegetable broth (low sodium is fine)
  • 1 1/4 cups Almond Breeze Almondmilk Unsweetened Original
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (we used white cheddar)
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
DIRECTIONS:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place chopped cauliflower and garlic cloves on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and toss until well coated. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Place pan in the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes or until cauliflower is tender, stirring once. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • In a large pot, melt butter over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add carrots and celery and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Finely chop the roasted garlic cloves. Add the garlic, roasted cauliflower, bay leaf, and dried thyme to the pot. Sprinkle flour over vegetables and stir. Cook until flour disappears.
  • Pour in the vegetable broth and stir. Simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the milk and shredded cheese. Stir until cheese is melted and chowder is creamy. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Ladle chowder into bowls and serve warm.
