Silky Cauliflower Soup

the running joke in my family that I could live off of soup. I’m extremely fond of cauliflower so this recipe for silky cauliflower soup over at Smitten Kitchen, seemed so perfect.

Ingredients:
1 head cauliflower
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 quart low-sodium chicken stock (or vegetable stock for a vegetarian dish)
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Remove the leaves and thick core from the cauliflower, coarsely chop, and reserve. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Cook until softened, but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the cauliflower and stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until the cauliflower is very soft and falling apart, about 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and, using a hand held immersion blender, puree the soup, or puree in small batches in a blender and return it to the pot. Add the Parmesan and stir until smooth. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Keep warm until ready to serve.
