Ingredients

  • 1 large 1 head of cauliflower, broken into florets

  • 1 medium 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves 2 garlic, minced

  • 4 cups 4 chicken or vegetable broth

  • 1 cup 1 heavy cream or milk

  • 2 tablespoons 2 butter or olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh chives or parsley for garnish

  • Optional: grated Parmesan or croutons for serving

Directions

  • In a large pot, melt the butter or heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent.
  • Incorporate the minced garlic and sauté for an additional minute.
  • Add the cauliflower florets to the pot, ensuring they are well coated with the onion and garlic mixture.
  • Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth. The liquid should cover the cauliflower.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Using a hand blender or a countertop blender (in batches), puree the soup until it’s creamy and smooth.
  • Return the soup to the pot and stir in the heavy cream or milk. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Let the soup simmer for another 5 minutes on low heat.
  • Serve hot, garnished with fresh chives or parsley. Add optional toppings like grated Parmesan or croutons if desired.

FAQ

Can I make this soup vegan?

Yes, replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth and use plant-based milk or cream instead of heavy cream. Olive oil can be used in place of butter.

How can I store leftover soup?

Store the soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. It can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

Can I add other vegetables to this soup?

Certainly! Broccoli, leeks, or carrots can be added to diversify the flavor and texture.

What can I use if I don’t have heavy cream?

Milk, half-and-half, or even coconut milk can be used as a substitute for heavy cream.

How can I thicken the soup if it’s too watery?

If the soup is too thin, you can simmer it for a longer duration to reduce and thicken, or you can add a roux (a mixture of flour and butter) to achieve the desired consistency.
