Ingredients

6 cups cauliflower, or brocoflower, 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
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
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.

Observations

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.

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.

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!
