Cauliflower Soup Recipe

Cauliflower is an underrated vegetable. Not only is it delicious as Cauliflower cheese and piccalilli, but it makes surprisingly good soup too. I made my own Christmas Piccalilli this week, which resulted in a lot of leftover cauliflower soup and stem. Rather than throw them in the bin, I used them instead in this modified cauliflower soup recipe.

Homemade Cauliflower Soup

This recipe makes enough for two large, or four small portions of soup. It's a great way to warm up after a cold winters walk, and is simple to make.


  • The stems and stalk of one large cauliflower, chopped
  • Half and onion
  • I/4 pint milk
  • 1/4 pint water
  • 1/2 pint stock ( I used chicken but vegetable would work too)

What can you make with Cauliflower stalk? Soup!

  1. Place the ingredients in a medium sauce pan and simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes
  2. When the cauliflower is soft the cooking is complete
  3. Season with nutmeg and salt
  4. Pour ingredients into blender and blitz.
  5. For extra smoothness strain the soup.
How to make Cauliflower Soup

If you like blue cheese, this a great recipe to add a sprinkling on top. If you're not a fan of blue cheese, this soup tastes delicious with a dash of truffle oil.
