  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 2 carrots peeled and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 28 oz box of vegetable broth
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 2 tablespoons truffle oil
  • For the crispy kale:
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 leaf of kale leaves removed from stem and finely chopped


  • In a large soup pot, heat olive oil on medium-high heat.
  • Add onion, celery, and carrots, and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add garlic, stir to combine with the vegetables, and cook another minute.
  • Add cauliflower, vegetable broth, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and let simmer for 20 minutes, until cauliflower is tender.
  • Once cauliflower is tender, use an immersion blender to puree the vegetable mixture. You can also use a high speed blender for this.
  • Once well pureed, add half and half and truffle oil, stirring well to combine.
  • To make the crispy kale:
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, add the kale, cooking until bright green and crispy, about 5 minutes. Add additional tablespoon of olive oil if you feel the kale needs more oil to fry in.
  • Season with a little bit of salt and pepper.
  • Ladle soup into bowls and top with crispy kale.
  • Enjoy!
