  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 (about 1 cup) yellow onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, halved
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • .75 oz Gotham Greens Basil

  • Grated parmesan, to garnish


  1. In a large pot on medium-low heat, sweat onions in olive oil with a pinch of salt for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add in garlic, cauliflower, and stock.
  3. Bring the liquid to a boil, then cover and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes.
