No-Cream Creamy Cauliflower Soup


Have you made any soup lately? Ever since I made the creamy broccoli soup without cream, I fell in love with the recipe and test on other vegetables.  I'm amazed how one potato can convert any vegetable into a creamy soup, even on sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts. These soups are simple to make, all you need is to cook everything in one pot and purée it in an immersion blender. Especially during these cold winter times, you do need a nice and warming soup.

Serves 6
Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 25 mins
Printable Recipe

Ingredients

2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
3-4 cups vegetable stock
1-2 head cauliflower, trimmed and coarsely chopped 
1 russet potato, peeled and chopped
Salt and pepper
Paprika for garnish

Procedure

1. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté onion until translucent, about 5 mins. Add in garlic and cook for 1 min until fragrant.

2. Pour in vegetable stock, cauliflower and potatoes, bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 mins or until cauliflower and potatoes are tender.


3. Purée mixture with an immersion blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve and garnish with paprika.

    I don't know too much about pickled soup. I know there is a polish soup which uses dill pickles.

  20. Your soup looks so warming and delicious. I made soup last night and also had it for lunch, yum. I usually use whole fat milk for creamy soups instead of cream. Next time I'll try just the potato like your recipe.
