    1 Tbsp. butter, plus 2 Tbsp. for optional garnish
    1 onion, roughly chopped
    1/2 tsp. salt, plus more to taste
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 head cauliflower, chopped
    2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
    1/4 tsp. freshly ground white pepper, plus more to taste
    1/8 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg, plus more to taste
    2 cups low-fat or whole milk
    2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley, optional


In a large pot over medium heat, melt 1 Tbsp. butter. Add onions and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally and adjusting heat so onions are cooking but not browning, until onions look starchy and a bit creamy, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add cauliflower, stir to combine, cover and cook 3 minutes. Add broth, bring to a boil, reduce heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook until cauliflower is tender to the bite, about 10 minutes.
Purée soup with a hand-held blender. Or, whirl in batches in a blender or food processor until smooth (place a kitchen towel over blender to prevent potential burns).
Stir in pepper and nutmeg. (Note: At this point the soup may be cooled, covered, and frozen for up to 4 months.)
Add milk and cook over medium-low heat until hot. Taste and add more salt, pepper, and/or nutmeg to taste, if you like.
Meanwhile, if you want to add the parsley butter swirl, melt remaining 2 Tbsp. butter and stir in parsley.
Serve soup hot, with a swirl of parsley butter, if you like.
