I am not sure what I did wrong here, but this soup did not turn out very good. I used fresh shredded cheddar, and added it to the puree part of the recipe, and it turned out curd-ly. I discovered I do not like the soup mostly pureed as specified. I would have preferred to mash it and keep it somewhat chunky. I will skip this recipe and technique next time.
Hi Annie, sorry this happened to you. Did the soup boil or bubble at all after you added the cheddar? That could be one cause for it curdling. Next time you make a cauliflower soup, you can mash or partly puree the vegetables to get you those chunks you want. Good luck!
This has become a staple in our household meal planning! Loved by adults and kids alike and a delicious way to get vegetables into everyone’s diet!
Simple. Easy. Delicious.
Made this tonight! Delicious..finished with asmall amount of 10% cream…and pulled some of the veggies out before I pureed..really good.
This soup is amazing! I prepped everything the night before and threw it all together quickly. While it cooked in the last step I did all the dishes that I had prepped the ingredients in. I froze half and have been eating the rest all day today – I can’t stop!
Love this soup. The only change I made was I toasted the cauliflower before I put it into the pot. This is definitely a soup I will make again.
What are the nutritional facts?
Hi, Christine! We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one.
My husband is not a fan of regular potatoes, but loves sweet potatoes. Can I use them instead?
Sure, you can use sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes. The cooking time and amounts should be the same, roughly. The flavor and color will be different, but certainly not bad at all. Hope you both love the results!
My daughter has been so unbelievably picky for a year or so. She went from eating anything from any culture, very adventurous trying new things to eating totally basic after getting sick. fr-us-tr-at-ing! She likes soup and this is one of the soups she loves and asks for regularly. Not difficult to make and it makes me happy when she eats a bowl.
Made this soup this morning with a few changes. In place of butter rendered a lb. of bacon. Will use bacon to top the soup. Used Cracker Barrel sharp cheddar cheese and College Inn chicken stock.Can’t wait for dinner as this is one of the best soups I’ve made!
Delicious soup! I’m going to add this to my repertoire. Thank you for a fantastic recipe.
Absolutely delicious! Family loved it, though the texture is pretty one-note, so I cooked up a little orzo pasta per package instructions (with salt in the water) and spooned a few tablespoons of cooked pasta in the center of each bowl on the surface of the soup for garnish/simple texture. Really, an outstanding, soup — definitely a keeper!!
All I need to say is eleven people gave it a ten. Great recipe. Thank you
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!
