more about:

2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
2 tsp. minced garlic
1-1/4 cup medium-diced onions
Kosher salt
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 lb. cauliflower, trimmed, cored, and coarsely chopped
5 cups vegetable broth, preferably homemade OR 2-1/2 cups lower-salt chicken broth diluted with 2-1/2 cups water
3 Tbs. white wine
1/4 cup thick whole-milk yogurt, preferably Greek
1-1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
freshly ground black pepper
1 cup croutons, preferably homemade

In a 4- to 5-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. When hot, add the ginger, garlic, and onions and a pinch of kosher salt. Stir well, cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the aromatics are softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in 1 tsp. kosher salt and the cumin.

Add the cauliflower, broth, and wine, stir well, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very tender and the soup is full-flavored, 7 to 20 minutes.

Take the pan off the heat and let the soup cool for 5 minutes. Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender (fill the jar no more than half full and vent the lid, topping it with a folded kitchen towel to prevent hot splashes). Wipe the pan clean and put the soup back into the pan.

Add the yogurt and 1/2 tsp. of the lemon juice. Season the soup with salt and pepper. Taste the soup and adjust the seasonings with more salt, pepper, or lemon juice as needed.

Ladle into 8 soup bowls and garnish each serving with 1 to 2 Tbs. of the croutons.
