Winter White Cauliflower Soup

2 heads cauliflower
1 ½ tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 red onion
½ c. butter
4 c. heavy whipping cream
8 celery stalks
2/3 c. flour
4 to 6 c. chicken broth
6 cloves garlic
2 tsp. dried rosemary
4 green onions, for garnish
4 tbsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 425°. Clean and core each cauliflower head; chop into small pieces.
Peel and chop red onion. Clean and dice celery. Peel and crush garlic cloves with a
garlic press. Whisk together garlic, olive oil and salt; toss over cauliflower, onion
and celery. Spread out on 2 jelly roll pans and roast in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes
or until edges of the cauliflower are golden brown.

In a large stockpot, melt butter and fold in flour, rosemary and thyme. Cook for 2 to 3
minutes until golden brown. Slowly fold in cream and 4 cups chicken broth. Add roasted
vegetables and bring to a low simmer. If soup is too thick add more chicken broth. Garnish
with chopped green onions and serve.
