  1. Heat grill Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix thoroughly. To assemble tear off a large piece of tinfoil, you want it at least 16 inches long. Fill the center and then you want to fold two center pieces over and then fold over at seam. Take ends and fold over. I used a smaller secondary pieces to cover the seams while cooking in order to keep the packet together. Takes about 30 minutes to cook on a low flame covered grill.

Season with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat until onion is translucent and tender. Cube the butter and add it to the pot, once it melts sprinkle in the flour, stirring to combine, then lower the heat and simmer 2-3 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock and allow to thicken, turning the heat up to medium. Slowly add the milk, combining, lower the heat back down to low, and add the grated cheese and parsley.
  3. Give the roasted cauliflower another rough chop to make bite-size pieces, and then fold into the soup. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Remove thyme stem. Enjoy!
