Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup
This low-carb alternative to classic potato leek soup is great for those looking to watch their carbs or those simply looking to try a change from the usual. Reviewer HOLLYFAE says of this cauliflower soup, "I love this soup and have it for lunch nearly every day. The texture is a bit more thin than a potato and leek soup, but that is to be expected in a low carb version and the flavor is outstanding."
Switch out broccoli for cauliflower and you have a creamy take on a classic soup. You don't even have to be a cauliflower fan to enjoy it: "I'm not crazy about cauliflower, but this soup is fantastic! You'd never even know it's cauliflower soup. Every person who's tried it, loves it," says reviewer AZPAMELUV.
Cream of Cauliflower Soup II
"This soup is an awesome addition to a cold winter's day! I added lots of shredded cheddar before serving with French garlic bread," says reviewer BEACHLVR4. "I also added a few very small florets of cauliflower and simmered at the end for extra added texture. This is a keeper!"
Roasted Cauliflower Soup
"This is one of the best soups I've tried," says reviewer Renee Ridgeway of this rich cauliflower soup. "If you love garlic and you love cauliflower then you MUST try this recipe."
This healthy soup is loaded with vegetables including a heaping cup of cauliflower. Reviewer lovestohost says, "What a great simple nutrient dense soup!"
Roasted Cauliflower and Leek Soup
"Oh my goodness, this soup is delicious! I had never had nor cooked with a leek before. And, I just love trying out new ingredients. I came to the conclusion that my family likes leeks because they all loved this soup," says reviewer Molly. "It is packed with flavor and held up nicely the next day for leftovers, always a plus in my book."
Tim Perry's Soup (Creamy Curry Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup)
A little curry powder goes a long way in this flavorful soup. "This was fantastic soup. I made it even easier by using frozen broccoli and cauliflower. The curry was a nice touch. I'll definitely put this on a regular rotation," says reviewer Karalyn.
Fabulous Roasted Cauliflower Soup
"The cauliflower took about 20 minutes to roast; 30 would have been way too long. I didn't bother pureeing it, I just smashed it up with a potato masher so that it was a little chunky," says reviewer Caroline C. "Even on a hot day, I really enjoyed this. Had it for lunch with some crusty bread. Delicious."
Simple Cauliflower Soup
Cauliflower is sauteed in butter with potatoes and onions before simmering in vegetable stock. "Very easy to make and excellent results," says reviewer Trixie.
Roasted Carrot and Cauliflower Curried Soup
Roasted carrots bring flavor and color to this creamy cauliflower soup. "Amazingly delicious soup," says reviewer ConkyJoe. "Readily available ingredients, simple to make, vegan-friendly, healthy, and very affordable all add bonus points to this recipe!"
Cauliflower Potato Soup
Lighten up traditional potato soup by subbing a little cauliflower. "We are making it for the second time tonight, because I have been craving it all week," says reviewer TexasTurbo. "I left out the cream cheese and bacon in an effort to make this a little healthier, and it was great."
Curried Cream of Cauliflower Soup
Turmeric, curry, and cayenne give this otherwise simple soup some serious flavor. It's a great way to dress up cauliflower if you don't consider yourself a fan (although that will change after you try this recipe). Reviewer Jasmin Rodrigiuez says, "This recipe was so delicious. I've wanted to make something out of cauliflower for the longest because I've never worked with it before. This was perfect. It was so flavorful and tasty."
Creamy Asparagus and Cauliflower Soup
"This delicious bowl of soup, despite being dairy-free, looks and feels pretty creamy. We have cauliflower to thank for that," says Chef John. "The soup looks like a classic cream of asparagus, and your eyes will fool your palate to a certain extent. In addition to giving it a nice color, the bumpy superfood cauliflower provides a smoother texture to the soup than the less-starchy asparagus could achieve alone."
Best Ever Creamy Soup
Fill up with this soup that has broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, potatoes, and cheese. "If you have some time to prepare all the veggies and potatoes (it probably took me 45 minutes to chop everything) then it's worth the work! This soup was super creamy, I couldn't believe there wasn't milk or cream in it," says reviewer Sally Stall.
This broth-based cauliflower soup really lets the veggies shine. Reviewer AUSTINB says, "This soup was easy to prepare. The results were a light but yet satisfying soup. I received several requests for the recipes at our staff 'soup' lunch."
