Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Print Friendly and PDF
The other day, I had a cauliflower soup at Zupas.  I got a Bountiful Basket this week and there was cauliflower in it, so I was inspired...   I searched around for some recipes, but ultimately made up my own concoction- as usual.  It was DELICIOUS!  I am so excited that fall is coming around again so I can make soups again.  I LOVE soup!  This one reminded me a lot of a loaded baked potato soup- but with it being mostly cauliflower, it is much lighter.  (Well, if it weren't for all the cheese I added in...)

1 head of cauliflower
1 carrot
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
3 potatoes
2 chicken bouillon cubes (or broth instead of water)
4 c. water
1 block cream cheese
2 c. grated cheddar cheese
salt & pepper

Saute the onions & garlic in a little olive oil.  Chop all the vegetables and add into the pot with the water and bouillon (or chicken broth).  Bring it to a boil and simmer until all the vegetables are tender.  Cube the cream cheese and add into the soup.  Puree in batches in the blender- or use a soup stick thingy (that's what I have- not sure the real name...  So technical, I know!)  Last, stir in the grated cheddar.  Season with salt & pepper. 

Top with some crumbled bacon & chives for an extra yummy touch!
