  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh sage divided
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme divided, plus more for garnish
  • 6 cups cauliflower florets 1 medium head
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable or no-chicken broth
  • 1 15- ounce can no-salt-added white beans rinsed
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 slices sourdough bread 3 ounces, cut into 1/2-inch cubes


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions, then and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and 1 tsp each sage and thyme; cook about 1 minute (until fragrant). Stir in cauliflower, broth, beans, pepper and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • While the soup is cooking, toss the bread with 1 tablespoon oil, salt and pepper, and the remaining 1 teaspoon each sage and thyme. Spread the bread cubes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Puree the soup using an immersion blender (or in batches in Vitamix for a super creamy texture) until smooth. Serve the soup with the croutons and drizzled with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkled with more thyme, if desired.


This soup can be made in bulk and stored for up to 5 days in the fridge or months in the freezer!
