Ingredients

  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped leek (2 medium)
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. 2. Combine cauliflower and 2 teaspoons oil in a bowl, tossing gently to coat. Spread cauliflower in a 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally.
  3. 3. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add leek, celery, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add roasted cauliflower and thyme; sauté 1 minute. Add broth, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; cool 15 minutes.
  4. 4. Place half of cauliflower mixture in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Return purée to pan. Combine milk and flour in a small bowl. Stir with a whisk; add to pan. Bring to a simmer, and cook 3 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly with a whisk.
