How to Make this Cheesy Cauliflower Soup:

This soup is extremely easy to make, it only requires one large pot , a blender and a few simple steps.

BOIL: In a large pot or Dutch oven, boil chopped potatoes, carrots and cauliflower. Once soft, blend until smooth in a high powdered blender.

SAUTE AND SIMMER: Next, in that same pot, sauté the onion and garlic, add some vegetable broth and seasonings before transferring in the cauliflower puree. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

GARNISH AND SERVE: Remove from the heat and serve into individual bowls garnished with chives or parsley and your favorite seeds such as pumpkin or hemp. Serve alongside a toasted baguette!

Notes: If you don’t have a high speed blender, an emersion blender or food processor will also work for pureeing the vegetables.


If you don’t manage to eat this whole pot of soup, simply let cool completely and store in the refrigerator in and air tight container. Alternatively, you can also freeze it in an air tight container and on the day of, let it thaw in the refrigerator for several hours before reheating. You may wish to add a touch more broth as it may have slightly thickened.
