Step 1:Steam chopped cauliflower, one clove garlic and 1/4 onion. I like to buy the pre-chopped cauliflower at Costco in the produce section. It is already chopped into pieces the size shown in the picture. It is super convenient – I usually buy a bag every week and use in different cauliflower recipes, or just roast it. You can definitely just buy a head of cauliflower though. I steamed mine in my rice cooker and it only took about 5 minutes!
Step 2:Blend ingredients in blender. If you are using a high powered blender, make sure you don’t blend it too much or it will get a little too pasty. If you like a little bit of texture in your soup, reserve some of the cauliflower and then add it in after you have blended. You can use whatever kind of cheese you prefer. Parmesan is really good if you like a little stronger cheese flavor, or cheddar is great if you are going for a more traditional flavor.
Once your soup is blended, pour into bowls and serve! You can garnish if you want – which with a mild soup like this we love garnishes! We used crunchy croutons, bacon pieces, and super thinly sliced spinach on the top of our soup.
This is a great soup to start your kids out with if they have texture issues, or are picky with their veggies because it is so creamy with a yummy cheese flavor. They will have no idea there is so much nutrition in it, and that it only took you 10 minutes to make!
