This was a delightfully easy, delicious soup. Nice and creamy without being too heavy. I’d suggest making double if you’re feeding a family as Seth and I ate almost the whole batch in one sitting!
p.s. This soup could easily be made vegetarian by swapping veggie broth for the chicken broth.
This was one of those recipes I threw together on a night when all the planned meals had been made and there was “nothing to eat.” I scrounged up a couple bags of frozen cauliflower that had been in the freezer for a while and ta da! Seth, the previously proclaimed cauliflower hater, especially liked this one. I was pleasantly surprised as well seeing as how there isn’t much to it but broth and blended up cauliflower! Super delicious dinner on dime and healthy too!
So this recipe has become one of my favorite side dishes. It’s super easy and it tastes great! I think this time around I’ve finally perfected the recipe with one small tweak. Before when I’ve made this, it was a bit too loose, not the mashed potato consistency I wanted. This time I slowly added the buttermilk in until the desired consistency was reached… I think I used about half the amount the recipe calls for. I couldn’t believe how creamy and delicious it turned out! If you love mashed potatoes like I do but want something lower calorie, give this a shot. It doesn’t really taste much like cauliflower at all and doesn’t taste healthy either! I love to pair it with a nice juicy steak!
*Disclaimer: I’ve never put gravy on this so I’m not sure how it would taste. I prefer to eat the cauliflower as-is, but I think it’d be good topped with melted cheese too.
I’m not really sure what to say about this soup other than it was simple to make and delicious. You’d think cauliflower soup would be bland, but the roasting part gave it a lot of flavor. I blended my soup up a couple different times because I wanted a smoother texture. First I chopped up the cauliflower in my food processor before adding it to the broth, then blended it all up with an immersion blender after all the ingredients were added (except the cheese). The recipe didn’t make much, just two large bowls, so if this is your main meal and you’re cooking for your family, you’ll probably want to at least double the recipe.
