Recipe: Roasted Cauliflower and Gorgonzola Bisque

A rich, satisfying soup to begin a fall or winter dinner with a terrific combination of flavors: roasted cauliflower, garlic, crème fraîche, and Gorgonzola with a swirl of walnut oil and a sprinkling of crunchy walnuts for a garnish.

Ingredients

Serves
8 to 10
  • 1 head (about 2 pounds) cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped peeled carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 quarts More Than Gourmet Ready-to-Use Vegetable Stock (or use 3 ounces Veggie-Stock Gold® dissolved in 2 quarts hot water)
  • 1 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • 4-5 teaspoons walnut oil

Methods/steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°.  Toss the cauliflower with the vegetable oil, garlic, onions, carrots, and celery, and season with salt and pepper.  Arrange the vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast them on the center rack of oven for 15 minutes.
  2. While the vegetables roast, bring the vegetable stock to a boil in a large stockpot over high heat.  Add the roasted vegetables to the stockpot and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  3. Purée the soup with a hand-held stick blender (or purée it in batches in a countertop blender) until smooth. Stir in the créme fraiche and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Remove the soup from the heat and gently stir in 3/4 cup of the Gorgonzola. Ladle the soup into warmed bowls, garnish with remaining cheese and chopped walnuts, and drizzle with walnut oil.
