Ingredients

1  
small head of cauliflower
1 1⁄2 pound
small medley potatoes* (a mix of red, yukon gold, and purple)
2 tablespoons
Olive Oil
1⁄2 tablespoon
everything but the bagel spice (found at Trader Joe's)
1 teaspoon
turmeric
2 cups
Horizon Organic Milk (I like the 2%)
2 cups
organic chicken stock
1 teaspoon
everything but the bagel spice
1⁄2 teaspoon
Sea Salt
1 cup
Horizon Organic shredded white cheddar cheese
2  
everything bagels (cut into cubes)
1 tablespoon
Horizon Organic butter
2 tablespoons
diced green onions

Notes

* the medley I buy has 4 purple potatoes, 4 yukon gold (yellow), and 4 red. 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  3. Slice the potatoes into wedges and lay them in a single layer by color (separating the purple ones). 
  4. Break the cauliflower into small pieces with your hand, or cut with a knife. Also lay out in a single layer. 
  5. Brush on the olive oil, then sprinkle everything-but-the-bagel spice on both the potatoes and cauliflower. Sprinkle the turmeric just on the cauliflower.  
  6. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until potatoes are golden brown on the edges and the cauiflower is softened. 
  7. Meanwhile, on the stovetop in a medium pan over medium heat, saute the everything bagel cubes in butter for approximately 8 minutes, stirring frequently. Bagel pieces should get browned and crispy, but not burned. Set aside. 
  8. Once the veggies are done roasting, remove them from the oven. Keep the purple potatoes on the baking sheet, but transfer the yellow and red ones into a high speed blender. Also add the cauliflower and milk and chicken stock. 
  9. Using the soup functionality on your blender (or high for about 45 - 60 sec), blend until smooth. 
  10. Pour soup into a large stockpot over medium heat. 
  11. Stir in sea salt and the additional everything spice, plus the cheese. Stir until melted. 
  12. Serve soup hot with chopped purple potatoes, the toasted bagel cubes, and a sprinkle of green onions (optional).
