  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced

  • 1 large rib celery, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional for garnish

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 2 large sprigs fresh rosemary

  • 2 large sprigs fresh thyme

  • 4 cups vegetable broth

  • 1/2 cup California walnuts

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)

  • 1 (15-oz) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

  • Olive oil, chopped toasted California walnuts, lemon wedges, chopped fresh thyme and freshly ground pepper (garnishes)

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with foil. Spread cauliflower and onion on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add herbs and toss lightly.

  2. Roast for 45 to 50 minutes or until nicely browned, stirring twice. Remove from oven and stir in garlic; let cool slightly.
