INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Check out Wednesday’s recipe from Annessa.

  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets, rinsed & dried 
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated 
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped 
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 8 ounces roasted red peppers, drained (from a jar)
  • 3 cups vegetable or chicken broth

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. On a baking sheet, add cauliflower florets, and toss with onion, garlic, and olive oil. Toss. Sprinkle on salt, rosemary, and paprika and toss again. Arrange in a single layer and bake for 40 minutes, tossing halfway through. Cauliflower should be tender and caramelized after roasting. 

3. In a blender or food processor, add the vegetable broth, red bell pepper, and all but 1 1/2 cups of the cauliflower mixture. Blend on medium speed until mixture is smooth and creamy.  

4. Add mixture to a medium saucepan and scoop in the rest of the roasted cauliflower. Heat on low just until warmed throughout. Pour into bowls and serve!
