Roasting heightens the earthy and nutty flavour of the cooked cauliflower.
Combine all the soup ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
The texture of the Roasted Cauliflower and Macadamia Soup should be thick and chunky almost chowder-like. However, adapt the soup to suit your own preference by adding additional water if you like your soup thinner.
Garnish the soup by crumbling some Chèvre Goats Cheese and macadamia nuts over the top and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
