Ingredients

6 cups cauliflower, cut into florets 1 kg
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 onions, finely chopped 100 g
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1 tbsp canola oil 15 mL
4 cups chicken broth 1 L
1/4 cup cream 15% 65 mL
1 1/3 cup Cheddar cheese, grated 100 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: cut the cauliflower into florets, finely chop the garlic and onion.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté 4-5 min, until translucent. Add the cauliflower and cook 2 min with stirring. Pour in the warm broth. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat, cover, and simmer about 20 min until very soft. Add a little salt and pepper.
  3. Purée the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour in the cream, half of the grated cheddar and adjust the seasoning. Put the soup back on the stovetop, add more broth if the soup is too thick, and reheat it throughout.
  4. Serve into bowls, adding the remaining cheese on top of each bowl.

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer. Cheese and cream should not be added before freezing, but later when the soup is reheated.

Yummy, everyone loved it and so easy to make. This recipe quantity was perfect for my food processor and I was able to reserve a quart to use later in the week. Added really sharp grated cheddar cheese and organic heavy cream from local dairy, reheated on stove to melt cheese, added a fair amount of pepper and salt to spice it up. This is definitely a keeper.

Very quick and easy to make in pressure cooker. Threw garlic, minced onion, cauliflower and broth in. pressure cooked 10 minutes after reaching full pressure, quick release and pureed. Added parmesan petals for garnish.

I added broccoli, because I didn't have enough cauliflower. I didn't make it to the cream/cheese part of the soup -- just pureed the soup and ate it. The soup was fantastic without the cream & cheese!

This soup was AWESOME and super easy to make! My 3 year old even liked it which in our house means this recipe is a keeper :) I added 3 cloves of garlic because we are huge garlic fans and also because I didn't have any cream I added 2 tbsp of sour cream instead...Mmmmmmm!

Excellent soup. I added additional spices,like cummin, curry powder and all spices. It was really good. Also, I added some leftover broiled vegetable I had made the days before, like yam, green pepper and potatoes. I pureed the whole thing, then added the half-half cream and emental cheese. Truly delicious. I would serve it to guests.
