Creamy Cauliflower Soup

We're nearing the end of soup season in AZ... but I have been craving something warm and cozy so I whipped this up! This soup is packed with flavor - I owe it all to the roasted garlic! It also is very easy... roast some potatoes, onion, garlic, and cauliflower + then blend! I added croutons and crunchy chickpeas because, in my opinion, a blended soup always needs a little crunch.
