A simple, flavourful and easy creamy soup made from caramelizing miso roasted cauliflower and mushrooms in the oven and then whizzing it in the blender. Babysitting the stove/oven not required. 🙂
The holidays have come and gone and the new year is here - 2017 here we come!
We celebrated the new year with a quiet evening with some much needed rest and downtime. The holidays are usually pretty hectic with all the cooking, baking, eating and socializing so it was heavenly to be able to shut our brains off before starting a new year.
(Would you believe even Oscar & Wilbur were burnt out?) The little guys opted for huddling under blankets napping away rather than playing with their new toys.
The robust flavours from this soup comes from roasting and caramelizing the vegetables and the creaminess naturally came from the cauliflower.
For this cauliflower mushroom soup recipe, most of the ingredients are common and can be found at your local grocery store.
If you are having troubles finding the miso paste, you can try to look for it at Asian grocery store.
For this recipe, I used a red miso paste, since I prefer a stronger miso flavour but you can use any type miso paste for this recipe and it turns out just as tasty. If you are new to miso, I would try the lighter miso's first (white and yellow misos), they will have a milder flavour.
ROASTING THE VEGGIES
Toss all the ingredients with the miso, butter and a bit of oil before putting it into the oven.
Tip #1 : Keep the garlic in the skins when you're roasting them. It prevents it from burning. Think of it as 'steaming' itself in its own skin! That way, you don't have to roast the entire bulb, just roast what you need.
MAKING THE SOUP
Once the veggies are done roasting, throw them all into a big pan and add some chicken stock to it. Don't forget to peel the garlic before putting it in the soup pot!
Simmer it for 15 minutes and blend it with a blender and voila! Soup is ready!
