This easy cauliflower soup recipe is thick, creamy and delicious! If you like cauliflower, you will love this delicious soup!
I’m happy! And not just because this easy cauliflower soup is scrumptious.
I’m happy because Christopher has come around. His opinion of soup has changed!
He never really considered it a proper meal. He always thought it was a side dish… of sorts. Here are his actual words when he tasted some of this soup.
“Wow, I like soup now.”
I just blinked at him. Who is this man that I’ve been married to for 28 years? Is this a pod person? All these questions rolled around in my head as I sat there blinking.
“Did you hear me?” He asked.
“Yes, I just don’t believe it.”
He chuckled and spooned some more soup in his mouth.
So this is a warning, there will be more soup on Dishes Delish, especially now since I have my instant pot. Though, this soup was made on the stove, not in the IP.
I fling back my head and cackle maniacally!
On to the Easy Cauliflower Soup Recipe
We have a large head of cauliflower, onion, celery and chicken broth!
Let’s get started!
I cut the onion into larger pieces than normal dicing would yield. I slice the celery and then cut the slices in half.
I put my Dutch oven on medium heat, once it’s hot, I add 2 tablespoons olive oil.
I add the onion, celery, garlic, thyme and salt and sauté for 10 minutes.
While the veggies are cooking, I cut up the cauliflower.
Time to add 4 cups of chicken broth and plop the cauliflower on top.
I let it come to a boil, which takes around 5 – 10 minutes, depending on the pan that you use. I lower the heat to a simmer and let it cook for an additional 15 minutes.
I fish out 4 pieces of cauliflower and set them aside.
Now, I use my immersion blender and blend it the easy cauliflower soup until it’s smoother than smooth!
Dribbling isn’t just for Drooling
Time to ladle the soup into two bowls. I place a piece of cauliflower on top of each bowl and dribble a little sour cream over the easy cauliflower soup.
Now for the overhead shot.
This easy cauliflower soup is creamy, dreamy and delicious!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe. I think you will.
