Creamy Cauliflower Soup
Get your daily veggies when you eat this delicious soup
Creamy cauliflower soup is both light and refreshing, yet satisfying. It’s quick to prepare for lunch or dinner and makes a balanced meal when you serve it a gooey grilled cheese sandwich. Switch things up by roasting the cauliflower in the oven first, or adding teaspoon of curry powder for a flavour boost.
Makes 6 servings
What you need
1 large onion, diced
1 tbsp. butter
1.5 lb. head of cauliflower, cut into flowerets
1 carrot, peeled and chopped into small pieces
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth (home-made, reconstituted from powder, or canned)
1 cup 1% milk
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cayenne (or more/less depending on how spicy you like it!)
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: fresh or dried dill or your favourite spice
How you prepare creamy cauliflower soup
In a soup pot, sauté onions in butter/margarine until soft. Add the cauliflower, carrot and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for ~15 minutes until vegetables are soft. Remove soup from heat and cool until warm. Place soup in a blender/food processor, add milk, and puree until smooth. (You may have to do this in batches due to the large quantity).
Place soup back in the pot and reheat. Add seasonings and more milk if the soup is too thick.
