This velvety soup combines the natural sweetness of oven-roasted cauliflower, the comforting aroma of garlic, and the richness of butter to create a bowl of pure indulgence. With a hint of zesty lemon juice and the perfect blend of seasonings, this soup is a crowd-pleaser for sure.

Ingredients for a soul-soothing bowl of Oven-Roasted Creamy Garlic Cauliflower Soup:

  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 onion
  • 1 whole bulb of garlic
  • A generous piece of butter, to infuse our soup with velvety richness.
  • A squeeze of lemon juice, to awaken and brighten the flavours.
  • 3 stock cubes.
  • A dash of black pepper.
  • A pinch of salt.

Now, let’s dive into the delightful process of creating this heavenly soup!


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).
  2. Break down the fresh cauliflower into florets. Toss the cauliflower florets with a drizzle of olive oil, pepper and salt and spread them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Chop off the bottom of the garlic bulb, exposing the garlic and put it upside down on the sheet and drizzle with olive oil as well.
  3. Roast the cauliflower in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until it turns tender and golden brown. As the cauliflower roasts, the rich flavours will intensify, providing a delightful base for our soup.
  4. In the meantime, chop the onion and grab your stock cubes.
  5. In a large pot, melt the generous piece of butter over medium heat. As the butter sizzles, let the enchanting aroma fill your kitchen.
  6. Add the chopped onion to the pot, allowing them to gently sauté in the butter until they turn soft and translucent.
  7. Once the roasted cauliflower is ready, add it to the pot, letting it bathe in the buttery goodness and absorb all the delightful flavours from the onion. Squeeze all the roasted garlic out of their skins into the pot.
  8. Now, it’s time to enrich the soup’s foundation with the magic of the stock cubes. Crumble them into the pot, infusing our creation with a symphony of taste.
  9. Pour enough water into the pot to submerge the ingredients, allowing them to simmer and meld together into a velvety masterpiece.
  10. Sprinkle in a dash of black pepper and a pinch of salt.
  11. Let the soup simmer and bubble away for about 15 minutes, allowing all the ingredients to harmonise.
  12. Once the soup reaches a state of creamy perfection, grab your blender and blend it until it transforms into a velvety delight. Make sure the consistency is smooth and luxurious.
  13. Finish the soup with a chunk of butter and a refreshing squeeze of lemon juice, brightening the flavours and adding a zesty twist that will leave you craving more.

There you have it – a bowl of Oven-Roasted Creamy Garlic Cauliflower Soup that’s sure to warm your soul and keep you coming back for seconds. Serve it with a sprinkle of fresh herbs on top, alongside some crusty bread for a delightful meal. Enjoy!
