Soup is a meal my kids will always eat.  We love soup because you can pack it full of veggies, and my kids love it because it is warm, comforting and delicious!  This 10 minute creamy cauliflower soup recipe is one of our favorites because it is super fast to make, and is packed full of cauliflower and all its nutrients.  Cauliflower is a really versatile veggie high in Vitamin C, K, fiber and B vitamins.  Give this soup a try for dinner tonight and you will probably want it on your regular meal plan!

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.

  • Preheat oven to 425℉. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
  • Chop cauliflower into florets and toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Give it a good toss half way through.
  • When the cauliflower has about 10 minutes left, in a large stock pot add the remaining tablespoon of oil and heat over medium high heat. Add diced onion, salt and pepper and cook for 3-5 minutes until the onion softens and begins to turn translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Add the broth and cauliflower to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add the milk. Simmer gently for 15-20 minutes to let the flavors combine and deepen. Remove from the heat.
  • Add 1 cup half and half and blend using an immersion blender. If you don't have an immersion blender, carefully transfer soup to a blender and pulse until smooth. Return to pot and add cheddar cheese. Stir until melted.
  • Pour into bowls and serve warm with bacon bits, croutons, and chives.

Went to the back of a cookbook with my son and here’s our suggestions:
Dark Chocolate? 🙂
Devilled Eggs
Dover sole
Dirty Rice
Or a bit more creatively:
Dipped _____
Diamond shaped ______
Double _______
Dried _____

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

Dragonfruit is awesome if you can find it. It really is gorgeous, and delicious. How about dulce? It’s a kind if sea vegetable and I really enjoy it as well. Or how about delicata squash? If you’re feeling REALLY adventurous, then now would be the time to try Durian. I haven’t been brave enough to tackle it yet. It’s a bit of a stretch since it’s not a “primary” ingredient, but you could also do dashi.

This soup looks good and I love cauliflower. I’ll think about some foods that start with “D” but I like the ideas here already, especially some dips maybe one for fruit and one for veggies.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea!

And for reminding me that meals don’t have to be either (complicated, time consuming) / or (open a not-so-nutritious can of soup)!

We haven’t tried freezing it, but I bet it would work fine. It will separate, but when you reheat should be smooth and creamy again.

Bit of an odd mix of flavours. If I made it again I would add more garlic, and possibly some other spices
