Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Put the cauliflower in a bowl with the oil. Mix to be sure all the cauliflower is covered in oil and place in a baking tray. Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes until soft and slightly charred.
  3. While the cauliflower is roasting, begin to prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  4. In a frying pan, over a medium heat, add the oil and fry the onion, garlic, carrot, and celery with a pinch of salt for 8-10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft and caramelized.
  5. Once the cauliflower has roasted, place into a processor or blender with the fried vegetable mixture and then add all of the other ingredients.
  6. Blend until smooth and creamy and then pass through a sieve back into a saucepan and heat through. Taste for seasoning and serve.
