My husband doesn’t like cauliflower but once he walked into the house and smelled the waft of the simmering soup cooking on the stove –  he said that it smells very delicious. And needless to say, he loved the soup and even had seconds. This soup is definitely a winner! A great comfort soup that is also easy and quick to make. It’s loaded with healthy vegetables and lots of deliciousness! 🙂 Bon Appetit!

How To Make Easy Cauliflower Soup

What you need

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 carrots, peeled and diced

2 stalks celery, diced

1 medium onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 head cauliflower, chopped

2 bay leaves

4 cups chicken/vegetable broth

1 cup almond milk

1/8 cup arrowroot starch

1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp fresh thyme

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1/2 lb pancetta, diced (or bacon)

Instructions

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Season vegetables with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in chopped cauliflower and bay leaves. Cook, stirring occasionally, about another 3-4 minutes.

Gradually stir in chicken broth and almond milk, and cook for a couple of minutes.

In a cup, whisk the arrowroot starch with 1/4 cup of the warm liquid from the soup. Whisk until it’s smooth, and add it to the soup. Stir well and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 12 minutes. Remove the bay leaves.

Using a hand blender, puree the soup but don’t overdo it. Season with cumin, oregano, thyme, salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.

Serve immediately, garnished with pancetta and fresh thyme, if desired.

    Have you tried freezing this recipe?

      Hi Debbie, I havent tried freezing this soup. However, it will probably freeze well since it doesn’t use any dairy. If you use regular milk instead of almond milk, I would omit it while making the soup and add it later when the frozen soup is reheated. Hope this helps!

    Do you have any other other alternatives to using a hand mixer ? I don’t have one thanks 🙂 I’m trying this tonight or sometime this week 🙂

      If you have a blender, you can carefully pour the soup in a blender and puree for a little bit until desired consistency is reached. You could also try to mash the cauliflower using a fork – this might take you a little bit longer and the soup may not be as smooth as when using a blender but I think it will turn out pretty tasty nevertheless. 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
