5 cloves garlic
3 tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil

1. Preheat the oven to 425º F.
2. Add cauliflower and peeled garlic cloves to a baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
3. Roast cauliflower and garlic in the oven for 30 minutes until the cauliflower has started to brown around the edges.
4. While the cauliflower is roasting, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a large soup pot, and sauté the diced onions for 12-15 minutes over medium heat, stirring to prevent over browning. The onions should be a light caramel color (because overbrowning the onions will turn the soup brown).
5. Add water and vegetable bouillon to the pot, along with the cashews, roasted cauliflower, and garlic.
6. In batches, process the soup in a blender. Process on high speed until the soup is very creamy (approximately two minutes for super smooth soup).
7. Return soup to the pot and season with thyme, lemon juice, and salt and pepper, if desired.
8. Refrigerate leftovers for up to 3 days or freeze in sealed containers for up to 3 months.
