Ingredients

    1Tbs Olive Oil
    1Tbs butter
    2 large onions, coarsely chopped
    3 stalks celery, trimmed and thinly sliced
    2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    leaves only from 3 thyme sprigs (or 1/2 tsp dried thyme)
    kosher salt & white (or black) pepper
    1 large head cauliflower, trimmed, broken into florets (I like to trim and slice up the stem part as well)
    6 cups chicken (or vegetable) broth

Directions

1. In a large soup pot or dutch oven, heat oil and butter over low heat. Add onions, celery, garlic, thyme, 1/2 tsp salt, and about 1/4 tsp pepper and stir to coat. Cover and cook gently, stirring often, until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.

2. Add cauliflower florets and broth to pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat so that broth simmers gently, cover, and cook until cauliflower is very soft, about 20 more minutes.

3. Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender until smooth and velvety. Season with more salt and pepper.

Serve with grated cheese (Parmesan, Comte, or Gruyere work well), a dollop of creme fraiche, a drizzle of walnut oil, or my favorite, white truffle oil.

Serving Size: Makes about twelve 1-cup servings
