- Place all ingredients (except cheese) into your blender.
- Puree. That’s it. It doesn’t get any easier than this.
My (affiliate) Vitamix blender has a soup setting. It is such a cool feature. When the cycle ends, the soup is HOT and ready to serve.
If you don’t have this feature, no problem. Just blitz all the ingredients until smooth. You have to do it in batches depending on the size of your appliance. Pour into a pot, heat and serve.
No blender? No problem. Place the roasted cauliflower and all the ingredients (except the cheese) into a pot. Use an immersion blender to puree. Heat and serve.
- I used bacon flavoured olive oil to roast the cauliflower. Any oil will work.
- Different cheese for garnish is a nice way to change the flavour. Smoked cheddar, crumbled blue or feta are great choices.
- You can even top this soup with roasted chickpeas, fresh berbs or nuts.
- Instead of smoked paprika try nutmeg.
- Switch up the colour of cauliflower, they are all absolutely delicious.
- Homeade broth works. Store bought is an easy alternative.
- Great sides would be: Cheddar Onion Muffins, Irish Soda Bread or Cheesy Cornbread.

- Green is sweeter than the common white version and similar to the texture of broccoli.
- Purple is super healthy. The vibrant hue comes natually from an antioxidant called anthocyanin.
- Orange contains beta-carotene in the florets. There is also a Cheddar Cheese variety, but does not taste like cheese at all. It is milder than the white variety.
Yes for sure. Place in a freezer bag, container or vacuum-sealed pouch. It will last in the freezer for several months.
Stored in an air-tight container, it will last 3-5 days.
