Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 head purple cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 5 cups purple potatoes (variety of sweet and regular), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Coconut oil or canola oil spray
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 fennel bulb, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large purple or orange carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 6 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • Salt & pepper
  • Sour cream or crème fraiche
  • Sprigs of cilantro for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the cauliflower and potatoes on a large baking sheet. Spray with coconut oil spray and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Toss thoroughly to coat. Roast in oven for 30 minutes, tossing half way through, until slightly caramelized.
  2. Meanwhile, heat coconut oil in a heavy dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. Sauté onions and garlic until translucent. Add in fennel and carrots and sauté until tender. Stir in the broth and the roasted cauliflower and potatoes. Bring to a boil, and lower to simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes until veggies are fork-tender. Remove from stove.
  3. Using an immersion blender or regular blender, blend until creamy (you can leave chunky if preferred). Season with salt & pepper. Serve soup in bowls swirled with sour cream or crème fraiche. Garnish with a few sprigs of cilantro.
