Cauliflower Cheese Soup
Cauliflower Cheese Soup is one of the BEST soup recipes you’ll ever eat! Seriously, this soup is delicious. It uses fresh cauliflower, carrots, celery, corn, onions, cream of potato soup, cheddar cheese and a secret ingredient! Provolone cheese makes it so cheesy and delicious. It’s the perfect soup for company or if you’re just a soup lover who loves anything warm and comforting.
Back in the early 2000s I worked for Dallas Baptist University while my boys and I were going through college. I worked in the College of Adult Education and the Financial Aid office during those years. Both of those departments would allow staff members to get together and serve breakfasts or lunches for their individual staffs at least once a month.
Our adult education department had a weekend college program so adult students could take Friday evening and Saturday classes and finish their degrees while working. On one occasion our department was bringing different kinds of soups and the Director of the Weekend College brought this delicious soup to the luncheon.
I was not a particularly great cauliflower fan at the time, but this soup was so delicious I asked him for the recipe. (I wasn’t alone, he ended up giving his wife’s recipe to several folks in our department). This soup has delicious flavor, texture and it’s a great way to use up fresh veggies if you have a garden. Cauliflower Cheese Soup is not particularly difficult, nor does it take a long time to make. It also is great reheated for leftovers.
Back in mid January I hosted our Bible Study Fellowship group at my home for lunch. I served this delicious soup along with Potato Cheese Soup, Broccoli, Pear and Pomegranate Salad, Spinach Pomegranate Salad, Creamy Grape Salad, Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread, Mississippi Mud Brownies and Be My Valentine M&M Cookies. Almost everyone started out with the potato soup but I started encouraging them to try this soup too. Once everyone tasted it they loved it! Cauliflower is NOT so bad! And, it’s certainly scrumptious when combined with all these ingredients. 🙂
If you enjoy cauliflower I strongly encourage you to give this soup a try. This is one of those recipes I’ve never had to fiddle with very much because it’s just about perfect! I think you’ll agree.
