We spend a lot of time in Maine and I must have lobster stew every week in the heat of the summer. Anyways I had some cauliflower and I was in the mood for some soup so I decided on this. I love cauliflower and garlic together. Well I love garlic with almost everything but it really does add a special something to cauliflower in my opinion. And roasting the cauliflower gives it a nice flavor.
This really is such a simple soup to make and always hits the spot. It’s perfect for a starter for a company meal or as a simple lunch. This freezes well too if you happen to have any leftovers.
