Cauliflower soup recipe

Fat Mum Slim /


I’d been so looking forward to the cooler weather here. This summer was a stinker. It was sweaty and humid, and involved lots of frizzy hair and trying to stay as cool as possible. Also, wishing we had a pool.

Then the cooler weather arrived and I remembered what I loved about it; curling up in a doona, wearing warmer clothes and being able to exercise at any time of day. I forgot about the bugs that come with it though, and how it takes forever for little people to fight the bugs and get back to 100% health. It seems everyone has some sort of sniffle or cough going on at the moment.

You know what makes everything better? Soup. It soothes the soul. And it’s perfect for those nights when Hubby is on night shift and my desire to cook is at zero. Soup is good. I found this one on and it’s beautifully comforting, and pretty much winter in a bowl.

Cauliflower Soup


1 tbs olive oil
1 brown onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets {just over 1kg}
500g potatoes, peeled & chopped
1 litre chicken stock
1/2 cup pure cream


♥ Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until the onion has softened. Add cauliflower and potato and cook for 5 minutes.
♥ Add the stock and cover with the lid. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and let the soup simmer away until the cauliflower and potato are tender {around 20 minutes}. Take off the heat and allow to cool slightly.
♥ Use a stick blender to blend the soup until completely smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Add cream. Stir until all combined. Serve.
