Fight Winter With Cauliflower Cheddar Soup

Print Friendly

CauliflowerCheddarSoupThis winter warmer is silky on the tongue, yet full of flavor from the combination of onion and sweet potato as well as cauliflower and cheddar cheese.

Cauliflower Cheddar Soup

1 large onion, diced
1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons butter
1 quart vegetable stock or chicken stock
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
Salt, to taste
Lemon pepper, to taste
1 cup heavy cream or fat-free half-and-half, plus more for garnish
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated

In a large stockpot, sauté onion and sweet potato in butter until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add stock, cauliflower, salt and lemon pepper. Bring to a boil. Cook for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked.

Let cool 10 minutes. Purée in small batches in a food processor or blender until smooth. Return to the stove and reheat, stirring in the cream and cheese until the cheese is melted.  Serve hot with a drizzle of cream on top.

Makes 1 1/2 quarts soup.
