Cauliflower Soup Ingredients
This recipe calls for just a few basic ingredients: garlic, cauliflower, shallots or onions, salt, onion power, and your milk of choice.
Optional garnishes include chopped chives or scallions, roasted cauliflower florets, broccoli, mushrooms, or carrots, croutons, bacon bits (some brands are truly vegetarian), cheddar, parsley, etc.
To make dairy-free and vegetarian cauliflower soup, I like to use cashew or almond milk. Or I’ll sometimes make it with canned coconut milk for an ultra-rich version.
The coconut milk substitute is especially nice if you add a little turmeric or curry powder, ginger and black pepper to an Indian cauliflower soup.
Optional butter or oil adds a rich flavor. Or you can leave it out for a low fat or weight watchers friendly keto cauliflower soup that’s still creamy and delicious.
With cauliflower as the base and no heavy cream or potatoes, this recipe is very low-calorie, even if you choose to add optional fats.

How to make Cauliflower Soup
Read the recipe, and gather all your ingredients.
In a medium pot, add cauliflower, onions or shallots, garlic, salt, onion powder and milk of choice and bring the mixture to a full boil.
Cook, stirring occasionally, till the cauliflower becomes soft. Stir in cheese (if using), and pulverize with an immersion or regular blender. serve hot. The recipe is great with cornbread, garlic toast, or English muffins.
Allow the soup to cool before serving, covering or dividing leftovers into airtight meal prep containers and refrigerating for three to five days. You can also freeze leftover soup for up to four months. Melt and reheat on the stove before serving.
Recipe Note: Feel free to roast the cauliflower first, if desired. I usually skip that step and start with raw cauliflower instead of roasted cauliflower, for a fast and simple cauliflower soup.
