Cauliflower & Cheese Soup

Cauliflower & Cheese Soup
I had a long time reader ask if I could provide more recipes. Oh Hai long time reader! I have read it and have answered. This is a favourite during winter and it is super cheap to make as well.

It is SO HARD to take decent pictures of my cooking. And I sort of forget quantities as well.

Once again - here are rough estimates with quantities. As I always say to Mick and I drive him nuts - just look at it and add more if you need.

1 head of Cauliflower chopped
Enough water or stock to cover up to half of Cauliflower
Stock cube if you are using water
Half a block of Cream Cheese cut to cubes
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cover and cook cauliflower until it breaks apart easily. You do not want too much water in there and it will look like there is not enough. But the rest of the cauliflower that is not submerged in water will  be steamed so do not worry about it.
Once it is cooked till soft. I blend the cauliflower roughly. Add half a block of cream cheese to this and continue blitzing it into the soup. I put about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of cream to the soup to make it creamier. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you have added too much water at the start, your soup will be thinner.

That picture above is what it looks like before I have finished blending it. When finished it should be a smooth soup :). Top it off with bacon bits or croutons.


  1. Ooooooh that sounds delicious! Love cream cheese.. THANKS for the recipe!


    1. No probs Prue, ya know what! I have another recipe coming up. AHHAH But it's not an original.

  2. Must try your Cauli soup. Much better than my version:
    Cook cauli in veg stock, blend with evaporated milk to taste. Whatever you do, don't stalk my noms unless they are takeaway!

    1. Banish the evaporated milk please, embrace the creammmm.. Creammmm.. Get on top!

  3. I love the simplicity of this recipe - my standby soup recipe is good ol' pumpkin but this sounds like a good alternative. Can you freeze and reheat it?


Oh hey stalkers.. leave a message so I know you've been stalking.
