Roasted cauliflower, and the lots of sauteed onions give this curried to a soup a solid base and silky texture. The Indian-inspired spice blend adds a subtle heat and smokiness. It comes together pretty quickly with the help of an immersion blender, and can even me made vegan if you use vegetable broth and oil instead of butter. The crunchy pieces of cauliflower on top make for a great presentation.
