INGREDIENTS:

  • canola cooking spray
  • 16 oz cauliflower florets
  • 16 oz brussels sprouts, halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter (or more oil for DF, W30, V)
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 3 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 450F.

  3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large sauce pan over low heat and add shallots. Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the broth and simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Shut the oven, reserve about 1 generous cup of the roasted vegetables and keep warm on the baking sheet.
  5. Transfer the rest to the pot and simmer 2 minutes.
  6. Transfer in two batches to the blender and blend until smooth.
  7. Serve in 4 bowls topped with the roasted vegetables and fresh black pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
