  • 12

    cups cauliflower florets (about 2 pounds)

  • Cooking spray

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 2

    cups thinly sliced onion

  • 4

    cups fat-free milk

  • 1

    (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth

  • 2

    fresh thyme sprigs

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons roasted hazelnut oil

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425°. 2. Remove white papery skin from garlic head (do not peel or separate the cloves). Wrap in foil. Arrange cauliflower in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Add garlic to pan. Bake garlic and cauliflower at 425° for 35 minutes or until golden brown, turning cauliflower after 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Separate garlic cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins. 3. Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan; saute 8 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add milk, broth, and thyme sprigs; bring to a simmer. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 4. Discard thyme sprigs. Stir in reserved garlic pulp and cauliflower. Place half of milk mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining milk mixture. Stir in hazelnut oil, salt, and pepper. Ladle 1 cup soup into each of 12 bowls; top each serving with 2 teaspoons parsley.
