I rendered a lb. of bacon to sauté veggies. The soup was delicious and will make again.
I made this tonight and the recipe is a keeper! I share my soups with neighbors and friends and still have enough left for my lunches for the week. One of the key ingredients here is the Worcestershire sauce. It’s just 1 tsp, but it’s a requirement–really helps to bring out the flavor of the cheddar cheese. Highly recommend.
One of my favorite recipes, always tell everyone else about it actually I have a pot of it cooking right now. Thank you for this recipe can’t get enough of it!
I love this soup!!! I usually sauté the carrots, onion, and cauliflower and then put everything in my pressure cooker to cook it faster. this has become one of my favorite dishes.
Wow. It is very easy to make. Healthy and yummy too.
Thanks for this recipe, Elise, it’s yummy.
I wonder why the recipe proposes excluding the cauliflower cores? They are perfectly edible and usable (as are the leaves). I imagine someone who follows the coring instructions might be inclined to just discard the cores when they seem to work just fine along with the florets in this recipe.
Hi Tim, good point! I’ve added more info on using the cores on the coring instructions, and modified this recipe to say “chopped cauliflower” instead of “chopped cauliflower florets”.
Hello! Does this soup freeze well?
Hi, Molly! I think this soup would freeze quite well. If it looks separated when you warm it up, just blend it in a blender again. Enjoy!
I’ve made this so many times. My extremely picky daughter requests it often. The hubs won’t eat cauliflower at all so he’s out… but if she loves it, that’s a big win for me. Highly recommended.
Just a favorite of mine
I made this in my pressure cooker. Cooked on high 5” with natural release. Veggies were perfect. Mine not as orange as pictured. Feel like something is missing but really good anyway!
Just made a batch of this to use up a cauliflower I’ve had hanging around a little while. Very yummy! Not a super cheesy taste (and I used extra sharp cheddar) but I’m ok with that cuz I feel oftentimes in the US we rely too heavily on rich cheeses and sauces, etc and it was nice that in this dish it just worked to give some extra depth of flavor but the cauliflower remained the main star of the soup. I love soups in cold weather so I will be eating this regularly!
Very delicious and lite. The cheese gives it the creamy texture. I also did not blend all veggies. I also added a few extra cloves of garlic.
This soup is delicious! I made it a week in advance of dental surgery and it froze and reheated wonderfully. So comforting and filling without all that cream/milk like most soups.
Great taste. I used white Wisconsin Extra Sharp cheddar cheese. I’ll give it 5 stars…
Looks delicious, do you know what the nutritional stats are on it?
I do not.
Very tasty, but not near as orange as your pic. Maybe more carrots next time
Could you do this in the crockpot?
Hi Lindsey, I haven’t tried making this in a slow cooker, but if you do, please let us know how it works out for you.
Can I do it without celery because my husband is allergic!
Sure Victoria, go for it!
Made this today, but I roasted all of the veggies before I added them to the stock. Tossed the cauliflower, onion, carrots, celery, and 3 whole garlic cloves in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roasted for 25 mins at 425. I never tried the original recipe, so I’m not sure about the comparison, but my version was delicious!
I think this is a good idea. I made this pretty much as written, but I found myself wishing I’d gotten more color on the veggies, because I found the soup just the teensiest bit bland. I even used homemade chicken broth. Next time I would caramelize the onion while roasting the cauliflower and garlic to up the flavor. Very nice recipe, though. A sprinkle of smoked paprika on top jazzed things up. Served with an endive orange salad with shallots.
I wanted a nice creamy soup to serve to the family. Our standard is generally a cream of broccoli, but I was looking for something a little different. My addition of a 1/2 cup heavy cream swirled in at the end completed it nicely. My husband is now asking for this soup to be served, and he’s a tough cookie when it comes to trying new foods! You have a winner here! Thanks for posting it : )
