Talk about creamy without the cream! This ivory-hued soup pairs a blended base of potatoes, parsnips, and onions with tender cauliflower and cannellini beans for a dish that is velvety smooth but still has plenty of body. White miso paste, which you can find in most well-stocked grocery stores, has a milder, more delicate flavor than yellow or red miso pastes. If the soup seems too thick, thin it with a little water. Serve with a big tossed salad and a thick slice of whole-grain toast.

Ingredients

  • 2 large russet potatoes, peeled and cubed (4 cups)
  • 1 white onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • ½ cup chopped parsnip
  • 4 teaspoons white miso paste
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 (15-ounce) can reduced-sodium cannellini or great northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • Thinly sliced scallions
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon wedges

Instructions

  1. Combine the potatoes, onion, parsnip, miso, garlic, and 4 cups water in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until the vegetables are tender; cool slightly.
  2. Working in batches, transfer the mixture to a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Return the puréed mixture to the Dutch oven. Stir in the cauliflower and beans. Return to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 12 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.
  3. Top each serving with scallions and pepper. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.
