1 Tbsp Organic Butter, unsalted
2 Tsp Extra virgin olive oil, divided
15 Garlic clove, peeled and trim both ends
2 Green onion, sliced
1/4 Tsp Red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp Lemon juice
2 Cup Chicken Broth
3 Fresh rosemary, sprigs
Cauliflower, cut into 1-inch cubes
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Trim both sides of garlic then add 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of sea salt.
Cover with foil, set on a baking sheet, and slide into oven.
Roast garlic for about 15 minutes, or until garlic is soft, but not at all brown. Once garlic is done, carefully remove foil and set aside to cool.
In a non-sticky pan, heat butter and 1 tsp. olive oil over medium heat. Take half of the garlics and add to pan with the sliced green onions, a pinch of sea salt, black pepper, and chili pepper flakes.
Sauté for 2 - 3 minutes, then turn heat to low and cover; cook, stirring occasionally, cook for about 30 minutes.
Remove cover, add lemon juice and scrape up any brown bits, then pour in 2 cups of chicken broth and add the cauliflower, reserved roasted garlic, and the herbs, along with a generous pinch of sea salt.
Bring mixture to a boil, and then turn heat down to a bubbling simmer. Cook until cauliflowers are tender, about 15 minutes.
Remove rosemary and carefully puree soup in a blender.
Return soup to pot, adding up to 1 more cup of broth, if needed. Adjust salt levels, add a splash more of lemon juice if needed, lots and lots of black pepper, and minced parsley leaves.
Did you know?
In Ancient Greek, brides would carry bouquets of herbs and garlic instead of flowers. I think we can all agree that flowers smell way better than garlic!
Another interesting use of garlic took place in World War I. Back then, British soldiers believed that Garlic would help wounds heal faster.
