"This recipe is the result of my desire to lighten one of my favorite comfort foods: potato soup. Cauliflower adds bulk and nutrition while the potato keeps the strong flavor of the cauliflower from overwhelming the dish."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Stir cauliflower, chicken broth, water, and potatoes together in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and stir in garlic, salt, white pepper, and thyme. Cover pot and simmer until potatoes and cauliflower are soft, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Mash potato and cauliflower mixture using an immersion blender or potato masher until pureed.
  3. Bring pureed soup to a simmer; cook until consistency is smooth and flavors are blended, about 30 minutes. Adjust salt, pepper, and thyme to taste.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The soup may look watery after mashing, but cooking it further really allows the ingredients and flavors to combine and the consistency to improve; don't skip this step!

This recipe had way too much thyme. Next time I will leave it out and add onion and celery.

I followed the recipe exactly - except for adding a tad of heavy cream and a tad of cayenne. The soup was very smooth and light and we enjoyed it the next day as well. Definitely a keeper - Than...

Excellent! I have never made cauliflower soup, so I have nothing to compare it to, but this tastes wonderful! I ended up making a double batch and I don't have an immersion blender, so instead...

I like this recipe a lot. It was easy to prepare and it's very tasty. I added a little bit crushed red pepper to mine for a little kick. I thought this was a little garlicky for my taste. So, ne...

Increased cubed potatoes to 4 cups. Used immersion blender then added a cup of milk and 1/2 cup half and half. No one would believe this soup's top ingredient was actually cauliflower :)

I added shorizo and chunks of red potato and cauliflower after I pureed it.

Really, really tasty--you'd swear there was cream in this. Two suggestions: I thought 10 cloves of garlic would be too much, so I added 7, and that was PLENTY; it has a strong garlic bite to it....

I didn't change a thing, and even my picky eaters liked it!

Very good soup but I did not add as much garlic as written. I used romanesco cauliflower, which gave it a beautiful green hue. Thank you for the recipe.
