Potato Cauliflower Soup

Soup is the best.

Like seriously, the best.

Who doesn’t like soup? If you don’t, then…I don’t even know what’s wrong with you.

I kid, I kid. Sort of.

Soup is perfect for numerous occassions.

Feeling sad? Eat some soup!

Shivering in your house because you refuse to turn  on the heat? Eat some soup!

Looking to pair something with a grilled cheese? Eat. Some. Soup!

I wanted to make kind of potato soup since I have, oh about 5 pounds of potatoes to use. But I also wanted to make it a tinge healthier than just regular ole potato soup.

Enter…cauliflower!

Added with some onions, celery, carrots & potatoes.

Into the pot they go!

Potato & Cauliflower Soup

Adapted from Annie Eats

  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 30 baby carrots, chopped
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled & chopped
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheese
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
Top with shredded cheese & bacon if desired…which you will, obviously.
Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and stir occassionally, until lightly softened. Season with salt, then throw in the potato, carrots, celery, garlic & vegetable broth. Cover the pot & bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, keep covered, and let cook for around 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Add in the cauliflower next & cook for about 6 minutes, until the cauliflower is tender. Stir in the cheese & mustard.
Puree with a food processor (or immersion blender if you have one). Make sure to vent the top of the processor to allow steam to escape or you will have a mess on your hands!
Serve with additional cheese (yes) & bacon (oh yes).
Mmhmm.
Yeeeeep.
You know you want some of this.
Question: What’s your favorite kind of soup? 
I love broccoli cheddar but I also can’t turn down chicken noodle!

  1. I’ve got a slew of purple potatoes from the west allis farmer’s market, so I’m going to make a sauerkraut and sausage stew on Sunday. But one of my favorite soups is the brocolli cheese from Panera 🙂

    That looks really good. How can it not be bacon and cheese on top?
