Blushing Cauliflower Soup

Serves 4 to 6
Time 1 hr 30 min
This soup is deceptively simple and has a subtle “blush” from the addition of red wine. Although it’s made from a handful of ingredients, the flavors are deep and rich. You could top this velvety soup with snipped chives or a few chervil or parsley leaves, if you like.
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 head cauliflower (about 1 1/2 pounds), chopped into small florets
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus more to taste (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons dry red wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Method

Heat oil in a medium pot over low heat.

Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft but not brown, about 15 minutes.

Add cauliflower, salt and 1/2 cup water.

Increase heat to medium-low, cover the pot and simmer until cauliflower is tender, about 15 minutes.

Add 4 1/2 cups water and wine, bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until cauliflower is extremely tender and falling apart.

Purée soup using an immersion or upright blender (working in batches, if necessary) until very smooth and silky.

Transfer soup to a clean pot and let sit for 20 minutes to allow flavors to meld and soup to thicken slightly.

Reheat soup over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Serve hot, garnished with a drizzle of oil and a sprinkling of pepper.
