NOT Cream of Cauliflower Soup

February 19, 2010

I love soup.  In the winter months there are few eating experiences that are as pleasant as a piping hot bowl of soup with a chunk of homemade bread.  Fortunately for all, there are few eating experiences as easy to achieve.  You can put almost anything into a soup and be sure that it will come out wonderfully.  Vegetables, pulses, meats, and cheeses are all delicious simmered up in a broth and can be made as hearty or rich or brothy as you want by pureeing or adding cream or roux or chopping your ingredients large or small.  In the soup world you are limited only by your imagination.  Unfortunately though, it seems like when it comes to broccoli and cauliflower soups, people always stick to the old chestnut creamy, cheesy soup.  Not that there’s anything wrong with it; that has been one of my favorite soups for as long as I’ve been alive.  I just wanted to make a soup showcasing cauliflower without resorting to the standby.  This spicy roasted cauliflower soup with French lentils is a perfect winter warmer.
