Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Goat Cheese

Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Goat Cheese

In this recipe, you can learn how to make a delicious healthy low carb cauliflower soup. One of the great things about cauliflower is how well it takes on the flavors of other ingredients. In this case, the more pungent goat cheese adds an interesting and delicious dimension to the finished result.

Ingredients for Soup :

  • Cauliflower
  • Goat cheese
  • Fresh garlic
  • Green onions
  • Dried parsley
  • Water
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Chicken stock – or you can use vegetable stock

How to Make Cauliflower Soup :

Step One:

Cut up the cauliflower, stems included, into small pieces and place in a large colander. Rinse thoroughly under running water and let drain briefly when finished. Place cauliflower in a large, microwave-safe dish with garlic, the white part of the green onions, and the dried parsley. Add 2-3 tablespoons of water and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Step Two:

Cover container and microwave on high until the cauliflower is fork-tender, approximately 6-7 minutes. (Actual cooking time will vary depending on microwave strength and the amount of cauliflower used, so test after 4 minutes and adjust cooking time accordingly).

Step Three:

Remove from microwave, and fill blender container nearly half full with the steamed cauliflower mixture. Add 1 cup stock to the blender and blend until smooth. (Make sure the blender lid is adequately vented to allow steam to escape before turning on the blender).

Step Four:

Pour cauliflower puree into a large soup pot and repeat with the remaining steamed cauliflower mixture and stock until it has all been pureed and transferred to the pot. Turn heat to medium and cook until the cauliflower mixture is heated through, about 5-6 minutes while stirring occasionally. Add the goat cheese and stir until blended. Cook another minute or two, or until the soup is uniformly heated. If the soup is too thick, add additional stock to reach the desired consistency. If it is too thin, continue cooking until excess moisture has been reduced.

Planning Tip :

If you want more robust flavors, roast the cauliflower and onion before blending. The flavor will be more complex, but be aware the soup will take on a darker brown color as a result.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve immediately topped with sliced green onion or crumbled bacon. This quick and versatile creamy low carb cauliflower soup makes a nice, light appetizer or a filling lunch when paired with a crisp, green salad like Low Carb Easy Broccoli Salad with bacon or Keto Broccoli Slaw Recipe.
