Dad’s Creamy Cauliflower Soup

My late Dad loved to cook, and soup was one of his many specialties. This soup was always a favorite, and now I love making it for my family, it brings back the memories of our childhood and the love we felt from him.

Both my parents loved to cook and no doubt that has rubbed off on my brother and I. My Dad’s style of cooking was very different from my Mom’s since he was born in Prague, Czech and she was born in Colombia. As you can imagine, the meals we group up with were pretty eclectic, but one of the simplest recipes my Dad made was this soup.

As a kid, we had a cup of homemade soup almost every night before dinner. I wasn’t always happy about this, because believe it or not, I was pretty picky. But on the night’s we had this soup, I never complained.

When my father lost his vision he was no longer able to cook. Thankfully I learned some of the dishes he once cooked. This one is EASY, only 5 ingredients. In less than twenty minutes you’ll have yourself a warm, delicious bowl of soup that is so light you can serve this as a first course for dinner or with a half sandwich for lunch.

There is no cream added, the silky texture is simply from pureeing it.  Dad used water and chicken bouillon which I often do (I use Better Than Bouillon) but here I used chicken broth instead; use whatever works for you. Sometimes I add some diced carrots, or even celery – there are no rules here.

  1. I love this recipe, so delish! I eat it for breakfast and add some bacon crumbles and a little cheese. It is so versatile!

    • I love it! I love that it’s “dads soup,” makes it extra special! I love the ease of it, and it’s delicious! C second time making ole dad’s soup. Thx sweetheart! Oh, I like to sautée my onion n add a, lil garlic. Crushed bacon n cheese on top don’t hurt either😄

  2. I have made this delicious soup COUNTLESS times! It is SO satisfying! Thank you for posting!

  3. Love this healthy soup and make it regularly. I saute the onions and a large clove of garlic before adding flour. Serve with sprinkling of shredded parmesan cheese. Delicious!

  4. Excellent soup and easy to make.

  5. Love this recipe!!
    So simple, delicious and healthy!!
    I first made the soup as the recipe requires but have since replaced the cauliflower with other veggies that I happened to have on hand.
    The other combinations were also very yummy!!
    Grateful for this recipe! Thank you ❣️

  6. This is the best soup.  I cheat and use 2- 12 ounce bags of frozen florets and it comes out perfect.  Makes 4-5 servings for easy lunch meal prep. Now that it’s finally cold out it’s back in my weekly rotation. Love it!

  7. Incredibly bland!

    This soup is pureed at the end so I used my Vitamix instead of a pot. I used all of the ingredients in the required measurements.

    I used a very flavourful homemade chicken stock and fresh Frozen riced cauliflower (fresh cauliflower riced by me and then Frozen).

    Cooking it in a pot and then pureeing it is no different than pureeing it in the Vitamix as it’s cooking.

    I don’t even know what to add to make the soup palatable to eat.

    I hate wasting food so I froze it and maybe sometime down the line I can figure out a use for it in a sauce or something. But it certainly isn’t edible as a soup.

    • Maybe try making it as the recipe suggests. Cooking it in the vitamix is not the same, especially for the roux. I made it as instructed and it turned out very tasty.

    • Salt to taste can be critical for this recipe. Takes it from bland to extraordinary.

  8. Great soup!

    Don’t have an immersion blender.

    Did have frozen riced cauliflower as well as
    frozen diced onions.

    This cut the prep time in half.

    Soup turned out very well; there were no leftovers.

  9. I made this soup and it was delicious. I had to substitute canned chicken soup and add water because I did not have chicken stock but it turned out wonderful. I made a lot so will freeze it for another time. I chose this recipe because I could make it all on the stove rather than some of the other recipes I saw that required roasting the cauliflower. 

  10. So yummy.  I did add Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning and it tasted amazing. 

  11. This is SOOOO good that I made it 2 days in a row to freeze some! Tastes like a cream soup without the cream! I used Better than Bouillon sauteed veg to make the broth. My neighbor asked if I used chicken broth, he loved it too. I added pepper but no need to add salt with the bouillon I used according to directions back of label. This is going to be made a lot in the future, thank you so much!

  12. OMG, I bought a cauliflower today, and thought ooh I’ll make a cauliflower soup. Saw this easy recipe.

    This has to be one of the easiest and best cauliflower soups we have ever had. We’re vegetarian so we used vegetable broth.

    Your Dad sounds like he was a fabulous cook, and thanks for sharing his recipe.

  13. Delicious! I made it and added one small Greek yogurt to the batch and some chives. It’s amazing satisfying and yummy. I will definitely make this often!

  14. Very good and easy!  Either my cauliflower was too small or maybe I added too much broth, so I added some cooked rice to thicken it up.

  15. I love,love, love this recipe. Cauliflower Soup is my all time favorite soup and I thought how can it be thick and Creamy with these few ingredients! Guess what it is and it’s so delicious! It was such a great lunchtime addition to my WW journey. When I want a little extra I top it with shredded cheese.Thanks so much for sharing!

  16. This is THE best cauliflower soup recipe I have ever tried! It is so easy and creamy and very low in WW points. When I want to “splurge” I top it with a chopped up slice of crispy bacon. YUM!!!

  17. Simply delicious. Never thought you could get such a creamy soup without cream. LOVE it.

  18. Amazing! So creamy and tasty, you don’t even need to add cheese! 

  19. This was OMG good! Like, how can so few ingredients be so amazing! I am in Central Texas in the middle of an epic and historical winter blizzard, and this soup…THIS SOUP…. saved the day! Tip: Serve it very hot with a warm crusty roll and thank me later.

  20. I’m struggling on WW to keep within my points so I went hunting for recipes. With so many positive reviews and hoping for the best I decided to try this recipe. WOW soooo good!!! Chicken broth is in shortage were I’m living so water and bouillon it was for me and it was as good as the reviews below stated. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

  21. My family found this soup only ok. Seemed too bland. Very easy to make though.

  22. I don’t care much for cauliflower but I decided to make this soup for my mother. The soup was delicious! I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed it. And I like the fact that it doesn’t call for cream. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe!

  23. How many days can it stay in fridge?

  24. Outstanding recipe. Really taste like potato soup without the calories. Easy to prepare and delicious. 

  25. Fantastic! Used double the butter (because butter!) and salted chicken broth, then topped with shredded sharp cheddar and croutons. Whole family loved it! Thanks for sharing.

  26. I made this tonight and liked it! I used a whole yellow onion because I hate to use part of a vegetable knowing the other part will likely go to waste in my fridge. Also added 1 Tbsp of minced garlic from a jar – will probably use 2 Tbsp next time. Used Better than Bouillon No Chicken base for the broth and 1.5 tsp salt. I didn’t measure the freshly ground pepper but maybe 1/2 tsp. Added dried chives on top.

  27. Amazing! I’m not a cauliflower fan but my husband is and I absolutely loved it. Was easy and great way to use my new emersion blender! One serving is filling and such low points for WW 🎉👏

  28. I love your recipes!! The cauliflower soup was delicious. Tha k you for sharing.

  29. So simple and so delicious! Certainly greater than the sum of its parts.  I popped it in the iPot on soup mode just because. 

  30. Have just made this soup and it was really lovely will be making this very often it was also thick which surprised me as there was no potatoes in it thankyou

    • I LOVE this soup! I’m preaching it to all my friends. I don’t have onion handy so I just subbed with 1/8tsp for half the recipe. Used tapioca flour too. And it turned out delicious.

      Question, can we use frozen riced cauliflower for this? I’m having trouble finding full cauliflower believe it or not. I’m thinking to reduce the water in half and continue with the recipe as written.

      Any thoughts? Thank you again!

  31. I made this wonderfully flavorful soup last night. I steamed the cauliflower. I sauteed the chopped onion and 2 cloves of chopped garlic in the butter and then added the flour and cooked it for a minute or so before adding 4 cups of leftover potato water and 4 teaspoons of Better than Bouillon (chicken) and the steamed cauliflower. I used my immersible blender which made the soup as smooth as silk. We did top our bowls of soup with some freshly shredded sharp cheddar cheese. My husband and I loved this soup.

  32. OMG!!!  This is absolutely delicious!!  Just made it for the first time and it’s a keeper!!  So easy and so good. I did add a little garlic….. I could eat it all!!  Thanks for posting this!’

  33. This is so easy and delicious! I save time by using frozen cauliflower-2 12 ounce bags

    • We all loved it! I used olive oil instead of butter. I’ve also added broccolini so my cream of cauliflower was green 🙂
      I used flavorful salts too! If you like your food a little bit spicy in your own bowl, add some sriracha! 

  34. Love this soup.  
    Added small amount of roasted broccoli to second batch.  
    Both were Yum

    Simple ingredients and I did not add salt.  Used regular old blender too

    Thank You for sharing!

  35. Such a delightful surprise with how delicious and flavorful this was! I added some minced garlic and threw in a parmesan rind and it was incredible.

  36. This was excellent.  A perfect soup recipe. Tasty, balanced, and easy.  Will certainly make again.  Thanks so much for posting.  

  37. A very comforting soup!

  38. Been a favorite for years. Just made again tonight. Never disappoints. I prefer Vegetable broth, garlic powder, and onion powder  but it’s so 😋 

  39. Delicious, comforting, simple, quick!
    I used regular chicken broth (not low salt) and 2/2 teaspoon of regular salt, and it was perfect!
    Feeling grateful for your amazing recipes!

  40. Love this soup. Curious to know if anyone has frozen leftovers.  Or would you not want to freeze any remaining servings? 

  41. Wonderful recipe. I found that i didn’t even need the full tablespoon butter/flour. I also added garlic.

  42. This was very tasty. I enjoyed it and will make it again. Your recipes are great and it’s nice to have them low cal as well. Thank you!

  43. My immersion blender is in storage, so just poured the boiled cauliflower + broth into a regular blender in batches and it turned out great!

  44. Sometimes simplicity is best. This soup has few ingredients, can be vegan!!!, is easy to make, and is so tasty! 

    I follow the recipe and just added extra seasonings. For the broth, I used 3 tsp vegetable broth (better than bouillon), and 1 tsp roasted garlic base (same brand). I added garlic, paprika, umami, salt, and pepper. For serving I added vegan cheese and sprouts. 

    Thank you thank you!!! 

  45. Another winner. As a loyal reader and follower of your recipes I’m surprised I had not tried this one. Made as per recipe but did have to increase the salt to bring out the flavours. A little shredded cheese for the kids and this goes on the rotation.

    Not as good as the cheeseburger soup but definitely a delicious and very fast easy soup now that the weather is starting to get cooler. Thank you Gina

  46. Not bland if properly seasoned. Healthy, easy and delish with a great story behind it. Greatful to have this amazing recipe!

  47. Have made this a dozen times!  I add some garlic. Great, fast recipe.

  48. Absolutely delicious! I double batch it and add four stalks of celery. I thicken with mashed potatoes and top with croutons. A family favorite- thank you!

  49. Great recipe! Followed the recipe and made sure to add enough salt and pepper and it turned out delicious! Thanks for sharing! I used fresh cauliflower but it’s nice to know I can use frozen as well.

  50. I made this with 2 10oz bags of frozen riced cauliflower because it was what I had on hand. The only thing I added was 1 tbsp of chopped garlic. 5 minutes on high pressure in the instant pot. Delicious! Thank you!

  51. I made this tonight with two 12oz bags of frozen cauliflower florets. Everything else was as written. It turned out so good!  Even my inlaws were impressed. I set up a little soup bar with cheese, cooked ham, onions, and jalapeños to be added as desired. It was a big hit with no leftovers!  I should’ve made more. 

  52. I loved this. I added some dill. Very good. Thank you 

  53. Easy recipe. The only change I made was cooking the onions in the butter before adding the flour.. I am not sure if this makes a big difference in taste .
    Lots of flavor.

  54. Tired of listening to the news about COVID-19 and had some cauliflower to use up. Found this recipe and made it exactly as written. Wow – what an easy meal for Meatless Monday! I added a little shredded cheddar on top and going back for a second bowl. Healthy and good for you comfort food – will definitely make again. Thanks!

    • You’re welcome!

      • I made this tonight and it was very good! I’m trying to replace more of my carbs with cauliflower to cut back calories, and this was VERY similar to potato soup like my mom makes. I sprinkled a bit of cheese and dried parsley on top, red pepper flakes and ham or bacon would have been delicious! Enjoyed on the side of some grilled shrimp. So light yet satisfying!

  55. DELICIOUS! Just made this for the first time and it is amazing. My picky kids even loved it! Will definitely make this a lot!

  56. Made today.  It is delicious!  The onion gives it great flavor.  I added 1 stalk of chopped celery. Thanks for this simple, healthy and yummy recipe!

  57. This is a nice comfort soup.  I will make it again.

  58. This soup is fantastic! Have substituted celery for the cauliflower and is also delicious. Thank you for the sweet story behind the recipe.

  59. I have made this soup several times.  It’s delicious!  So easy and WW friendly. 🤤

  60. Curious. How did your father lose his eye sight?

  61. This soup was good, my first Cauliflower soup and I like it. Because of too salty, in the end added some corn from tin can. Tasty ..
    Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  62. I make this soup of yours all the time – I love it! Now that I know the backstory, I’ll love it even more. Thank you for sharing.

  63. This was the first soup I made with my new immersion blender. It was delicious. I loved it.

  64. Do you know how many carbs are in it

  65. Bland. So bland. 
    I added 2/3 c lite coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, curry spices. Added  lots of lemon and lime in my cup. 

    • This is great soup.  My picky son asks for it.  It’s filling and tasty by itself but could also be used as a base for many different creamy soups.

      Thanks to the commenter about the salt.  They were right.  If the soup tastes bland you need more salt.  Depending on what you like you’d need more or less.  My family likes 1 .5 teaspoons in the batch.  You should add in 1/2 teaspoon increments until the salt level is good for you.

    • Not bland if properly seasoned. Healthy, easy and delish with a great story behind it. Greatful to have this amazing recipe!

  66. I just made this soup for lunch. It’s awesome, creamy and tasty. I threw in some croutons when I served it which I like better than crackers in soup. I could eat seconds and thirds!!  Thanks Gina for your wonderful recipes. 

  67. First time making this and won’t be the last!  I love it!

  68. Very bland. Had to add cheese, sour cream and tortillas to it which helped a wee bit. Added Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb which helped it most.

  69. This was delicious as made. Salt and pepper after immersion as mentioned. Super easy to make. Too funny with all the comments about what people have changed or added – then it’s not the recipe. 

  70. Very good. I decided to add a cup of shredded cheese.

  71. Made this and loved it. Used water to which I added two scant teaspoons of vegetable flavor Better Than Bouillon . A few shakes of turmeric and some mushroom mini pierogi for soup, and voila!. My adult daughter who doesn’t like cauliflower at first said she didn’t think she’d like it, but then ended up having two helpings of this soup for her dinner.

  72. I made this soup today. I was very excited about trying it because my son loves cauliflower and both my husband and daughter are not fond of it. Based on the overwhelming positive reviews, I thought that I would be able to get my husband and daughter to like cauliflower this way. Honestly, I am not picky at all, but I have to admit that the soup was bland and had no kick to it. I even added onions, garlic, paprika and celery to it, based on reviews, but that wasn’t enough. I chopped up fresh onions and dill to add to the soup to boost the flavour. That did work, but I shouldn’t have to do this. Unfortunately, I won’t be making this again but I am definitely willing to try out some of your other recipes as they often tend to be quite successful.

    • If you added all of those extra flavors and still found it to be bland, perhaps you need more salt. The salt really draws out the flavors. We didn’t add anything beyond the recipe, and didn’t find it to be bland at all. It’s a new fav of ours, the kids especially love it

  73. This has become a favorite of mine. I can’t ever wait for the weather to cool down enough to make this! I love it as is, but my meat eating family members require cubed ham and shredded cheddar cheese in order to enjoy. Either way, it’s a winning recipe!

    • I’ll bet this would be great as a chilled soup too! 
      Also, I was thinking rather than adding celery stalks, to maintain the creamy, white appearance I’d add celery root. 
      Sometimes the best recipes are those with the fewest (but freshest) ingredients!

  74. Should we not addany water or milk?

  75. Added carrots & celery and extra seasonings Topped w/ 1-2 t turkey bacon bits. Was delishious. Definately a keeper. Thank you!

  76. Beyond!!! I put hot sauce and teaspoon plain Greek yogurt (tastes like sour cream) and a couple tortilla chips- like a spicy creamy tortilla soup without the calories!!!

  77. I’m not a fan of cauliflower, but I love this soup. To add more beans in my diet, I add a 1/2 can of cannellini beans before I purée it and it doesn’t change the points. I also have made it using broccoli. For that recipe, I use onion, celery, carrots, and broccoli.  After I purée the mixture with the beans, I add a small can of corn for sweetness.

  78. Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe. I was tired of roasted cauliflower. Also loved your asparagus soup which I made this year in the spring when we had too many asparagus spears in the garden. My favorite way of eating asparagus. That this was your dad;s recipe makes it more meaningful and dear to me.

  79. Loved it! Added carrots and paprika. My 11 year old approved!! Thanks! 

  80. Very easy to make and so delicious. I added all the ingredients except the butter and flour and cooked in my Instant Pot on High pressure for 3 mins. Melted the butter in the microwave, added flour stirring until smooth, then added it to the cooked cauliflower and onion mixture and used an Immersion Blender until creamy smooth. Packed it in my lunch today and LOVED it!

  81. Awesome soup. I love it!

  82. Really great tasty soup!

  83. Delicious cauliflower soup.  My husband and I loved this soup! It is the second soup recipe of yours that I have made (the first was the cream of asparagus). Both turned out great and were simple to make! Thank you for sharing your recipes.

  84.  Would this work in an instant pot? If yes, how long? 

  85. Delicious! Healthy and easy! Love love love it! May your Dad rest in peace!

  86. Do you think I can use the Instant Pot following the same directions, making the roux on Saute, then adding the cauliflower, onions, and broth, then Pressure Cook for 5 minutes, then using the immersion blender?

  87. I stumbled across your site last night and was excited to find this recipe as I had two heads of cauliflower in the fridge. I doubled the recipe for extra soup and halved the butter, but still came out wonderfully. Also didn’t have any chicken broth so I subbed with vegetable bouillon. Reminds me of a cream soup that I used to get with fried chicken in South Korea when I was a kid.  Such a beautiful yet simple dish. Thank you. 

  88. Thank you for sharing a part of your life with your Dad and sorry for your lost. I’m making it now and wanted to to thank you again for this will be shared today with my 88 yr mom and I’ll run some also over to my son, wife, and new granddau!!!.. I had a wonderful father too who I lost few yrs. back and I’m reflecting on how thankful I am, so I appreciate it.!!! It smells and brings a sweet aroma of reflection to this kitchen with “family time gatherings”!!! Thank you again.

  89. What a beautiful story, thank you for sharing. I will be trying the soup tomorrow.

  90. Just finished making and a sample taste of this. It’s VERY good. Added a large, pared carrot that I cut up and cooked along with the cauliflower. Thanks for another great recipe, Gina.

  91. Why have I waited so long to make this? It is So easy and SOOOO tasty! This is why I cook on the weekends — to be able to look forward to a home-made lunch at work all week long. ALong with a roll-up of the tuna garbanzo salad this fits right in with my reduced calorie coal for the week.

  92. Thank you so much Gina for sharing this delicious soup recipe!
    I love cream soups and this takes the cake for being yummy and healthy at the same time. It’s not heavy like potato soup so you feel no guilt with bacon and cheese as a garnish. I love avocado and bacon with it.
    I have the fondest memories of being in the kitchen and watching my mother, grandmother and aunts whip up their magical dishes.
    Nobody made cobbler like my grandmother. The best part was pulling out her pastry board and playing in the extra dough.
    I would have loved being in you Dad’s kitchen.  I’m glad you appreciated his gift of cooking so he can continue giving thru you.
    Again, thank you Gina. I will always honor him when making this recipe.

  93. I made this twice already. This time I blended in kale and put fried tofu with a bit of lemon and green onions on top. Looks so fancy and tastes great in cold Michigan.

  94. Made this on Sunday and had for lunch Monday. It’s so delicious and so quick and easy to make. I garnished it with a little grated gruyere cheese and a crumbled bit of bacon to jazz it up and fresh diced parsley. Looking forward to making this luscious soup again soon. Thanks for a wonderful family recipe!

  95. Made this soup tonight on a rainy winter evening ad it was so satisfying! Added celery, and shredded carrots and topped with a little milk and chopped fresh spinach.

  96. Delicious! Very quick and easy to make. Served it with shredded Cheddar cheese. Yum!

  97. Thank you for the recipe. And may your wonderful dad rest in Love. ????

  98. It should be called Dad’s “Dreamy” Creamy Cauliflower Soup. Soooo good. I love this soup so much. I’ve made it three times. Two heads of cauliflower makes about 2 1/2 quarts. Freezes very well. I prefer creamy soups over brothy ones, and this one fits the bill with all the comfort and none of the guilt.

  99. This simple soup is DELICIOUS I used what I had on hand.. No added salt veggie broth, carrots, clerey, a little red bell pepper, onion and of course cauliflower.( wanted to clean out fridge). Followed instructions and it came out nice and thick and smooth thanks to an immersion blender. Will totally make this again.

  100. So sorry to hear about your dad. I make this often. This has become my favorite soup!! Did he have any other great recipes?

  101. I made it. I roasted the cauliflower with mushroom s boy was it good. Will be making again and again

  102. Oh my goodness! This is the best soup. I added garlic and celery and it sure warms you up on this 20 degree in Michigan! Sorry about your Dad his recipe will live on now in this household♥

  103. It’s fast.  It’s easy.  It’s super delicious !  I can’t even believe it!

  104. I’m in Australia – is chicken stock the same as broth or do you make your broth from scratch? Thank yiu

  105. This is delicious!!! Made this today and it turned out great~ 

  106. I absolutely LOVED this recipe. I love how creamy it is, it tastes like a high fat/calorie soup without eating a high fat calorie soup. It was SO butter tasting and good!

    I made a couple of changes, I don’t have an immersion blender so I used our normal blender. The cauliflower blended so well you couldn’t see the individual grains anymore.

    A dash of paprika, cayenne pepper, and a tablespoon of sesame oil (I LOVE THAT STUFF) upped the calories a little bit, but added to the flavor profile which was already so good. I used salted chicken broth too, because I’m a salt monster. What a wonderful recipe, I’m sorry about the loss of your father, and thank you to him for this recipe and to you for sharing it with the world.

  107. I’m a huge lover of this recipe and make it in big batches to last me through the week. I try to have a low calorie intake and when I make it, it turns out to be about 50 calories for a HUGE portion. I was wondering if you had any recommendations for other spices to put in it? I’m not an experienced cook and don’t know the flavor profile of a lot of different spices. Do you know – or have an idea – of other spices that would be good in it? Paprika? Cumin? Etc?

    • I roast  my  cauliflower first to add some extra flavor then I add a little bit of white pepper as well as paprika and a dash of crushed red pepper. Comes out great! 

  108. Just made it! So simple and sooo delicious.

  109. Just made this for the 1st time yesterday and all I can say is WOW! This soup is wonderful! I like cauliflower, not my favorite vegetable tho, but I will definitely make this again. The texture is smooth and silky but thick enough to be very satisfying and I love the fact that no cream or half & half is needed to make it. I used all vegetable broth and added about 2 tsp of Better Than Bouillion chicken to it to give it a little more flavor and it was fabulous. Don’t have an immersion blender so I puréed it in my blender—worked like a charm. I sprinkled a little Parmesan cheese on top for flavor but is equally good without. 

  110. Will this freeze well?

  111. So sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. I am going to make your Dad’s soup in a couple of weeks.

    I’m hoping my husband will like it as he is a vegetarian.

  112. So sorry about your dad. 🙁 Will make this soup in his honor.

  113. it’s like potato soup! so good!

  114. So sorry about your Dad.  ❤️

  115. I LOVE this recipe!!!Just made a big batch today as its cold and rainy here in San Diego!!!I leave out the butter and flour and it still comes out creamy. Added half a serrano chili and boy, did THAT spice things up. Maybe a tad too much but its still delicious!!!Going to be sure to have this on hand after my knee surgery since I will be down for a couple months. So great its no points without the flour and butter.

  116. I am sorry to hear about your father. The joy he had in cooking and feeding his family is reflected in your blog and recipes, which in turn inspires so many, including me. The impact of one person can never be truly known, I hope you can find some comfort in that his life has impacted so many in such a positive way.

  117. If you use frozen cauliflower will that make any difference? Thanks!

  118. I enjoyed this recipe. I added carrots and garlic. My daughter, husband and i really enjoyed it. I have kidney problems and am tending to follow a vegan diet. So i really appreciated this recipe cause i love soup.

  119. This is so delicious and comforting. I want to confirm that it freezes beautifully! That is a big plus for me- love having it pre-made and just reheating in a pan. Thank you! 

  120. Very tasty. I added a lot of celery seed and thyme. It rocked. It tasted almost like potato soup.

  121. Made the recipe with no changes.  Simple and quite good.  Thanks.

  122. Can I use a package of the already riced cauliflower? If so, how many do you think?

  123. Hi there 
    I have made this many times using the stove top method.  How would I convert this for the IP.  Do I just set the IP to soup or do I cook it under high pressure for 10 minutes?
    If you have tried it or have any suggestions I would like your input
    Thank you

  124. This is my first time seeing your site. I was drawn to the recipe as you stated it was one of your Dads favs.
    I also lost my Dad recently and in feeling the kinship gave it a try…. it is GREAT. i am not a cauliflower lover or even that health conscience despite the fact that i need more veggies and to eat better. Thanks for sharing and my thoughts will be with you and your family each time I make this soup!

  125. Absolutely delicious. I ad a 1/2 cup of reduced fat sour cream at the end like you do with the potato soup. I’m trying another batch right now with broccoli. Also, I used frozen cauliflower and it worked great! Doing the same thing with the broccoli.  Oh, and I put a little shredded cheese on top and about one tablespoon of refried bacon bits to each bowl. ???

  126. Tell your Dad Thank You!!!! This was delicious and easy! I doubled the recipe because I had 2 heads of cauliflower. I also added onion and celery and dried thyme. This will be a staple soup in my house!!!!!!

  127. DELICIOUS! I used vegetable broth and added some carrots, celery, and spices (a bit of thyme+rosemary+oregano+basil mix). So simple, quick, and easy too! I planned to freeze some but it might be eaten up before then! Thanks so much for sharing this warm and comforting recipe – it will definitely become a staple here. 

  128. This soup is very satisfying.  Super easy to make, filling, and healthy.  I followed the basic recipe, but doubled it, so I could freeze some for another day.  I added a small bit of reduced fat cheddar cheese to my bowl and stirred it around. Yummy. Will save this and make again and again.  Thank you for sharing,

  129. Delicious!! I made this using vegetable broth and a generous quantity of seasoning. Highly recommend!

  130. I made this tonight. It was amazing! So simple, yet so flavorful! Thank you for sharing and spreading your Dad’s recipe with us. 

  131. Wonderful soup! What a great memory of you father.
    I did add diced green chili peppers (canned) with onions and sautéed before adding flour.
    Will make again!

  132. This was so easy to make and delicious!!  I will be making this often, my kids loved it- a great way to get them to eat their veggies.

  133. Can you freeze this soup?

  134. I made this soup with celery and carrots. I added rotisserie chicken when I went to reheat the next day was so good like chicken and rice soup. Love your recipes,!!!!!!!!

  135. This soup is AMAZING. I like cauliflower but don’t love it but I loveeeee this soup. I used half chicken broth, half chicken bone broth.  It is creamy, rich and delicious. Highly recommend. This was my first time trying any of your recipes and I am thrilled to try more! 

  136. This soup is amazing! I can’t believe how creamy and delicious it is! I topped with a bit of shredded cheddar and chives!

  137. Absolutely amazing recipe! So simple and soo easy. I did not expect to love this as much as I do! I loved it so much that I had to come back and leave a review. I will make this weekly!

  138. This soup is delicious!  I’ve made it as is, with broccoli instead of cauliflower and with half cauliflower and half broccoli – depending on what I have on hand.  It”s always delicious.  

  139. This is my third time making this soup and I love it 🙂 I’m new at cooking soups and this was super easy and straightforward. I love that its simple and healthy, but packed with so much flavor. Thank you so much for sharing!

  140. Best Califlower Soup EVER!!! I dont this often… thank you Gina!

  141. I’m so sorry you lost your dad, I just saw! I am praying for you and your family to have comfort and peace. His cauliflower soup is a family favorite in my house, and I just pulled up the recipe and read the sad news. How amazing is it though, that through you, hundreds of thousands of people get to experience just a small fragment of how amazing your dad was? Thank you for taking the time to share his recipe with all of us. 

  142. After reading of your loss I made this soup tonight. It will be one of my go to simply delicious soups. Loved this and so did my hubby. Your father must have been very proud of you.

  143. This soup is wonderful! Made exactly according to the recipe, wouldn’t change a thing!

  144. Made this soup tonight and can say that this is both wonderfully delicious & healing! Thank you for sharing! My Dad’s favorite thing to make besides meat on the grill was soup….he left this earth in 2015. Peace & Love to you & yours.

  145. My husband hates cauliflower! So I just made toppings like it was cream of potato soup for him – chives, sour cream and chives, a little pepper. He LOVED it! I finally had to crack about half way through and tell him it was cauliflower. He ate the whole thing. Thanks for a great recipe for a very rainy, blustery day warm hug!

  146. Made th e cauliflower soup for dinner tonight – amazing!!! I did roast the cauliflower ahead of time since I adore roast cauliflower!

  147. Shoot dang! This is amazingly tasty for how simple it is. I carmalized the onions before making the rou and kept some of the cauliflower chunks whole because we are not the biggest fans of completely puréed soups. To add a little color we put a bit of dill as a garnish- so freakin good. A new favorite in our house.

  148. Sorry to hear about your Father. So glad you honored him by publishing his Amazing Soup! We Love, Love, Love it! Thanks so much! I guaranty this will become a staple in our home.

  149. Eternal memory to your father. I’m going to try the recipe for cauliflower soup today.

  150. holy moly this soup was good. my husband could NOT stop complimenting. i added chopped carrots and celery and 1 extra cup of chicken broth. i don’t have one of those immersion blendy things so i scooped out the big stuff with some liquid and used my blender. this left small chunks in the soup which made it even more delicious. i can’t believe how much flavor is in this soup with so few ingredients. love it!

  151. First of all I am sorry for your lost. Your Dad’s Cauliflower soup was outstanding! Take care…

  152. so sorry for your loss

  153. Yes, a fine recipe, I was interested by the creation of the roux first, usually it is introduced after the vegetables are cooked, as a thickening agent. The addition of leeks, and home made chicken stock, made this a delightful soup, as was the remaining half sliced roasted cauliflower with parmigiana added as a topping, crusty warm baguette also optional. – killer

  154. Okay. This soup is amazing!!!! Wow. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  155. Really easy and delicious soup! My husband and I also love garlic and cheese, so I added a little of both to the mix and that was also delicious. So sorry to hear about your father- sending positive vibes to your family. 

  156. Merci d,avoir une bonne recette comme cella sauf quelle a moins de calorie Merci de m,aider…

  157. Hello Gina

    I lost my Dad 20 years ago and I appreciate the mourning you will do through. I offer my thoughts and knowledge that day after day the pain will lessen. Sharing your father’s recipes will help. I had been looking for a cauliflower recipe that was more like my Dad would have made and today I’ve found the one you’ve posted. Strength comes through sharing and I’m so happy to find your Dad’s recipe. It will be part of our dinner tonight and we’ll honor you and your Dad’s contribution to our Saturday night dinner. Take care!

  158. So sorry about your father’s passing. I will be praying for you and your family!

  159. So sorry to hear about the loss of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very difficult time.

  160. EXCELLENT and very easy to make.  Paired well with  Rosemary olive oil bread.

  161. This soup is SO delicious it’s hard to believe it’s healthy. I absolutely loved it. You will too!

  162. Delicious!!!! Filling, we added a bit of grated cheese. Definitely making again.

  163. So sorry to hear about your loss. The soup is delicious and a great way to commemorate your father 🙂

  164. Made this again tonight…….thinking of you Gina. Hope all is well. 

  165. I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing this special recipe. I have made this several times already and my entire family loves it. This is our new favourite soup! 🙂

  166. Smooth and creamy. Delicious.

  167. I’m so very sorry to hear about your loss.

  168. excellent soup

  169. Gina, I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. Sending love and comfort to your family. 

  170. This soup was wonderful! I doubled the recipe. I used Better than Bullion to make the chicken broth. I also added nutritional yeast and two teaspoons of minced garlic. Served with shredded cheddar jack for the huzz, and shredded swiss for me. 

    Yum!!!! Great recipe. Thanks to you and your dad for sharing.

  171. Gina,
    I’ve tried many of your recipes in the past and have always been very satisfied with the results. No one guessed they were being served low calorie food, because it was full of fresh flavor. 

    I was searching for a recipe for a hearty soup for another snowy New England day, and when I saw the post about your dad’s passing, I knew this was my recipe. Today would have been my dads 88th birthday, but we lost him 3 years ago and he’s missed every day. I will make the soup in honor of both of our dads who are watching down on us. I’m so very sorry for your loss. 

  172. Yum and I didn’t put any flour in the soup, really thick without . 

  173. Gina – I am so sorry about your father. Saturday, it will be a year since I lost my dad and I am going to make your dad’s soup in honor of both of our dads. My heart hurts for you.

  174.  I made this soup yesterday for the first time. It was so amazing.  Full of flavor!

  175. One of my all time favorites. Quick and easy to make.

  176. Pingback: Creamy Cauliflower soup | Recipes I tried

  177. Gina,
    I am so, so, sorry for your loss. Sending lots of love and prayers for peace and healing during this sad and difficult time. My sincere and heartfelt sympathy.

  178. So easy and so delicious. Healthy and filling too.

  179. Gina, So sorry to hear about your Dad. Thanks for re-sharing the soup.

  180. YUMMY!!!! Was perfect for the cold rainy day it is!!! I used truffle salt to season it instead of regular salt.  So Good!!!

  181. Ive always wondered what to consider a medium head of cauliflower?  Can you approximate how many cups of chopped cauliflower this would be the equivalent? Or weight in pounds, of a “medium” head?

  182. I made” Dad’s Cauliflower Soup” and it was absolutely wonderful! Very creamy, nice texture, didn’t take long at all to cook. Thank you for the recipe.

  183. I’m so sorry for your loss, Gina. This was one of the first recipes I ever made from Skinnytaste years ago and it’s one of my favorites. It’s such a great recipe and a really nice tribute to your dad. 

  184. Just finished the end of this delicious soup. I will definately make again, perhaps adding sautéed mushrooms after puree to make a yummy cream of mushroom, or perhaps some chicken to add some protein. Again, Gina, so sorry for your loss….it was a special tribute to post this.

  185. So sorry for your loss.  I’m glad you got to spend quality time with your Dad in his golden years.  I’m sure these last few years he’s been living with you have been both trying and exciting at times but your family will always have the memories in their hearts.  
    On another note, since this recipe popped up on your site I took it as a sign to make it even though I didn’t have high expectations as cooked cauliflower is ok but not my favorite.  This is really good as written!  After tasting it though, and having just made the broccoli soup, I added a cubed potato and some parmesan cheese and it’s awesome!! I’m blown away at how good it tastes!  Now I know what I’m going to do with all of that frozen broccoli and cauliflower from last years garden!! Another hit!!  

  186. I’m so sorry to hear about your Father’s passing, I am making his Cauliflower soup foe dinner tonight, I’m sure it will be wonderful. Thank you for sharing your recipes.

  187. So sorry to hear of your father passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  188. I truly feel for you on the loss of your Dad, my mother left us just the day before him. She taught me to cook from when I was about 5yo, and it was always something we shared. I’ll make this soup for both of them, and us, to remember them by.  xx

  189. I am so sorry for your loss – losing a dad is really hard.

  190. My sincere sympathy to you and your family.  I opened your website this morning because I wanted to make this soup today as I have many times.  Was so surprised that it showed up as the first recipe…

  191. What a delicious soup! My family loved it. A GREAT soup on its own; as well as one that can easily be modified. A new favorite! Thank you to you and your Father for adding another wonderful meal to our table. What a great way to honor him. This quote seems fitting…

    “Soup is a lot like a family. Each ingredient enhances the others; each batch has its own characteristics; and it needs time to simmer to reach full flavor.”
    ~Marge Kennedy~

  192. I lost my mom suddenly in 2007 of February.  My heart goes out to you and your family.  Absolutely making this recipe in his honor!❤️Sending you love from Missouri! 

  193. This is truly a delicious soup. I added a few florets of broccoli which gave the soup a light green shade and then I topped it with browned sausage crumbles that had a little kick to it. I’ll definitely make it again and again!!

  194. I’m so sorry to hear that your father passed. I have made this soup many times and, even though I have never met you or him, I’ve thought about how this was your dad’s recipe and how special it was to you. It’s delicious- thank you for sharing with us.

  195. This was delicious! Although a little bland I added my own spices, and some cheese. AND WOW. Filling and delicious it is the healthy cousin of the potato soup. I am so sorry to hear about your father passing and I am glad we can all keep his memory alive thru his wonderful soup. <3

  196. Thanks for sharing the recipe…sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. Thoughts are with you.

  197. So very sorry for your loss.

  198. So sorry for your loss – my dad was a chef (lost 2 years ago suddenly) and we also grew up cooking together.

I love sharing the stories while cooking with my family, keeps him close in my heart.

  199. I am so sorry about your dad.

  200. Such a sweet post. May your Dad Rest in peace. I will definitely be trying this tonight!!

  201. Thank you for sharing. So so sorry for your loss. I know they always say “death is a part of life” and I know has to happen but it is always so painful to accept losing a piece of our heart!! I am not very good at it myself and have had many opportunities.
     I am new to your site but have heard great things! Thank you for being such a wonderful resource to so many! Your father was very proud of you I am sure! 
    Sending comforting thoughts your way.

  202. I’m so sorry for your loss!!! My mom passed away 7 years ago and I know having these memories of her are what helps me feel her close to me! You are so lucky you have these memories of your Dad & his recipes! And I thank you for all your recipes you share with us to make precious memories with our families!!!

  203. So sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one especially a parent is so incredibly hard and painful. I lost my my 6 years ago…. I always take comfort in knowing she is always with me… especially when I am doing the things she loved such as cooking and entertaining…. I know she would have loved your website and recipes.

  217. I’m so sorry to hear about your father. Food is one important way of remembering our loved ones.

  218. I make your cousin’s Katia’s Caldo Gallego soup in memory of my father.  It was the last satisfying meal he had before dying two years ago.  I look forward to making your father’s cauliflower soup and will send comforting thoughts to you and yours.  Much love  to you at this time.

  219. Gina, I’m so sorry to learn of your loss. It’s beautiful how you can pay tribute to him, sharing a part of him with so many even through your pain. God bless you and your family.

  220. Condolences on the loss of you father. May his name be blessed.

  221. Gina,

    My sympathies. I remember the avocado pop recipe was something he enjoyed or encouraged you to make. And it is one of my many favorite recipes from you. 

    Grieve well… take your time processing this great loss.

  222. I can’t wait to try this. I feel like it’s an omen that I do.  My father also passed on Friday and lost his sight almost 20 years ago. He was never a cook but appreciated those that were and he enjoyed eating 🙂

    • Wow, and my brother’s name is Ivan although we pronounce it like your name. I hope you enjoy and I am so sorry for your loss. We have quite a bit in common.

  223. I am so sorry for your loss.  I am looking forward to making this soup.  Clearly you got your skills and love of cooking from your parents.  I know your father was very proud of you.

  224. My condolences on your father’s death. Thank you for sharing your memories of him and his recipe.

  228. So sorry to hear about your father’s passing. You and your family will be in my prayers during the time of grieving.

    I too shared a love of cooking with my Dad. We spent many days and nights together in the kitchen. His love lives on through all the memories that get stirred up when we make one of his favorite dishes since his passing.

  229. I’m so sorry for your loss. He will forever live on in your heart.

  230. Gina, I am so sorry for your loss. May your father Rest In Peace and may your family be consoled knowing that his memory will live on and be carried by so many.

  234. Made this soup for the first time today. It was easy, fast and delicious. It tasted so creamy and buttery even though it only had one tablespoon of butter in the recipe.   It will definitely be in my regular rotation. 

  235. So sorry for your loss, Gina. I love reading the stories you share about your Mother and Father and have enjoyed many of the recipes. I will try this one and send thoughts of comfort your way. 

  236. So very sorry for your deep loss. Nothing can replace our parents but I hope many wonderful memories of times together and well enjoyed can bring you some small comforts.

  244. Just a quick note to let you know all your recipe fans are thinking of you in this difficult time with the loss of your father.  He’d be proud to know you posted his cauliflower soup recipe. I will make it soon.
    Take care


  245. Gina, he will live on through all of the wonderful things you and your family learned from him. I’m so very sorry for your loss. Sending you love.

  246. Very sorry for your loss.

  247. I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad! I will put him in my prayers.

  248. I’m so sorry to read about your father. One of life’s sadest days. I’m cooking the cauliflower right now. We’ll toast to your dad!

  249. So sorry for the loss of your dad. Glad you have many great memories. My mom was Czech and my favorite dish she made was Sauerbraten with dumplings and red cabbage. The sauerbraten was made with heavy cream or sour cream, not gingersnaps. Maybe you could develop a recipe in honor of your dad that would satisfy SkinnyTaste followers. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

    • Thank you for the reminder, a dish I grew up eating so many nights. It’s been a long time since he made it since he went blind, but I am sure my Mom still has his recipe. I will ask her.

      • I have my mom’s recipe and will share it with you if you can’t find yours. I hope you will be able to make it a little less calorie laden. Sending hugs your way.

  250. I’m so very sorry that your dad has passed away.  Please accept my sincerest condolences, and know that my caring thoughts are only part of an enormous envelope of love and sympathy which is surrounding you now.

  251. Sorry for your loss Gina. I know what it is to lose your father. Love that you are keeping his memory alive through your cooking. Excited to try this one in his honor! Thanks for keeping our family cooking and eating healthy

  253. So sorry to hear about your father.

  254. May his memories be a blessing during this difficult time.

  255. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. I am still fortunate to have both parents, my Dad who’s 80 and my Mom who’s 77. I hope memories of him such as his soup help bring your comfort.

  256. Condolences for your loss….cooking recipes inspired by your Dad are wonderful memories…he will always be with you????

    The cauliflower soup is reminiscent of something my mom used to make when I was a young girl growing up in Calcutta India????

  257. So very sorry for your loss, hold on to the memories.

  258. So very sorry for your loss! Praying for you and your family!

  264. My dad died years ago and I still wish I could ask his advice when I have questions. I’m happy for you that you have his recipes to keep his presence alive. I would be interested to see more of his recipes in the future.

    Question: Have you ever served this cold or at room temperature?

  265. I was given your book for my birthday last year and have just started incorporating it into my weekly meal planning. We had this soup on Saturday evening – I wasn’t planning on making it but something told me it would go great with our brussel sprout & green apple grilled cheese. It was certainly a hit. Praying for you and your family during this season of loss.

  266. My condolences to you Gina and your family. He sounds like a wonderful father.  I hope your many memories can help comfort you.  I miss my Dad too.

  267. Gina… so sorry for your loss. I have enjoyed this and many of your soup recipes for many years now. THIS one is also one of OUR favorites! We will think of our fathers often during our Soup Nights! (mine left me in ’07). May your journey be swift and eased with the love of your family and friends. Janet

    PS  I’ve made your dad’s soup and love it!

  282. So very sorry to hear about your father. My grandather, Pepe, was french and we still think his way of cooking was the absolute best. Similar to this recipe, all of his recipes were simple but amazing to us. We cook in his memory all the time and for just a while, it is a reminder of a past time and brings a bit of comfort.

  283. My Deepest sympathies for you loss Gina…..this is one of my most favorite of all the recipes you have shared with us. I have prepared it well over 100 times for countless friends and family. Please know that your father’s recipe is well loved by many people. …….a batch will be simmering on my stove tonight in his honor.

  284. Deepest condolences to you and your family. Losing a parent is so hard.

  324. First please let me say i am so very sorry on your loss. I lost my dad this past July and it has been so difficult. Huge hugs and much support to you. Like your dad my dad was an amazing cook he loved it as well and so many many memories of different things he made. I know it sounds funny but one of the things that really hits me is that there will be no more of certain dishes he made that i have fond memories of no more of his amazing pork loins crusted, no more hollandaise sauce on eggs benedict. We were both so very blessed to have amazing fathers take joy in that. BIg hugs again to you.

    Death Is Nothing At All
    By Henry Scott-Holland

    —- Death is nothing at all.
    It does not count.
    I have only slipped away into the next room.
    Nothing has happened.
    —- Everything remains exactly as it was.
    I am I, and you are you,
    and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
    Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
    —- Call me by the old familiar name.
    Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
    Put no difference into your tone.
    Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
    —- Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
    Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
    Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
    Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
    —- Life means all that it ever meant.
    It is the same as it ever was.
    There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
    What is this death but a negligible accident?
    —- Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
    I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
    somewhere very near,
    just round the corner.
    —- All is well.
    Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
    One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
    How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
