This soup will warm you up with a little kick! Spice up your Whole30 with this delicious dish.


  • 1 Tbsp Aleppo Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Sumac
  • 1 Tbsp Smoky Paprika
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 quart chicken stock (or compliant vegetable stock)


Preheat oven to 400 F.

Make a spice blend by combining the Aleppo pepper, Sumac, smoky paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Set aside 2 Tbsp for this recipe and store the rest for later use.

Break up the cauliflower into florets. Toss with olive oil, 2 Tbsp of spice blend, and salt.

Roast for 20 minutes. Remove and add the garlic cloves. Return to the oven for 20 more minutes, or until done. (My cauliflower took a total roasting time of 40 minutes.)

Blend the roasted cauliflower in a Vitamix with the chicken or vegetable stock.

Serve with suggested toppings (or your favorite toppings.)


Optional toppings: toasted pepitas, Whole30 compliant bacon or croutons, créma (if not doing Whole30)
