  1. Beautiful! I love the sound of that caramelized topping and it’s so striking against the creamy soup!

  2. as someone who has been knee deep in soup weather since, oh, say, august, i cannot thank you enough for this recipe. i’ve been in the need for some excitement in the soup realm! you had me at caramelized onions… nothing says fall like a house that smells of caramelized onions :)

  3. I love the flavour of this! So fabulous!

  4. I have everything but the mushrooms in my fridge. And a few loads of laundry to do. Seems it’s inevitable that this will be on my stove and in my belly in the next day or two. Looks gorgeous and I can’t wait to try.

  5. Easy is for sissy’s… which by then way i can be a sissy. I too love the detail of cooking… from scratch can take longer, but always worth the wait.

  6. Elizabeth, this soup looks so warm, comforting and creamy! Even better that there isn’t any cream involved. I’m bracing for colder weather but it’s nice to remember that I can make soups like this to warm me up from the inside.

  7. I love how much care and thought was put into this soup. I am not a patient cook, but lately, I’ve been thinking about tackling the kind of food that needs an afternoon of slow cooking. Your recipe is a great reminder that a lot of the remarkably good stuff takes time.

  8. This looks so comforting and fits in perfectly for this time of year……beautiful soup!

  9. This is an absolutely gorgeous recipe! The mushroom garnish sounds like the perfect topper too… thanks for sharing!


  10. I wonder if you mean 2 teaspoons sea salt for the soup (as opposed to 2 tablespoons)? I just made the soup and it’s inedible.

  11. Elizabeth, a meandering slow-going soup recipe is just what I want this time of year! I think the slow cooking really allows each layer of flavor to develop and the resulting soup is so much better than one quickly cooked in one go. On Sunday I spent hours tossing things into our big soup pot and it made me so happy. This fall weather makes me want to cozy up inside and make soups just like yours.

  12. I tried this recipe yesterday night. It was creamy and delicious! Thank you for sharing… :)

    Can you make this in a crockpot?

    • Hi Abby, To optimize the flavor of the cauliflower, I think you’d still want to roast it. I don’t have a crock pot myself, so I can’t say with confidence how the rest of the recipe would translate. Thanks for checking out the recipe!

    if I opt not to make the broth how much should I add to the cauliflower? Thanks! Can’t wait to try it.

    Recipe above still shows 4TBs of salt and sadly I just spent all day making the soup and it is beyond salty! I’ve literally tripled the amount of water but it has made the soup very thin, watery and still salty. :(

    I will definitely try to make this again another day, because it looks delish, but to save anyone that makes this A LOT of heartache and time, you may want to triple check that the recipe in the thread above is updated.


    • Hi Meghan, Gah! I can’t tell you how sorry I am to hear this. I have fixed the broth recipe to read 4 teaspoons (not tablespoons), but I wish there was something I could do to fix your soup. Thanks for stopping in to let me know.

  16. Hi!

    I just did this recipe and its absolutely delicious, I didn’t have any problems with the salt because I always put enough salt to my taste (that’s one bit I don’t follow from recipes)! Thanks for the delicious meal! :) (and btw the photos look gorgeous as well – I was trying to do the same but failed miserably :))

    Making this right now. OMG the house smells amazing. Thank you for this recipe!

    I wish that your recipes were printer-friendly. What a shame to waste so much paper when it could be edited down to just a one-page recipe…eleven pages to get the recipe for a simple roasted soup seems crazy. Soup sounds delish, though! :)

      Hi Jennifer,
      Sorry to have used so much of your paper! Creating printer-friendly recipes is on my tech upgrade to-do list. One thing you could do is highlight the recipe text, copy it, and then paste it into a blank doc. That would give you more control with what to include. Hope that might help!

    It was cold and rainy in SoCal this weekend aka stay-in-and-make-soup weather. We made this recipe and finished it almost instantly. This is an absolute must make – healthy, easy and delicious!
