Cauliflower Cheese Soup Low Carb Recipe - creamy, low fat , easy to make, delicious caulidflower cheddar soup in a bowl with parsley on the side.

This Cauliflower Cheese Soup Low Carb Recipe is one of my new favorites. A similar soup, made with broccoli has been very popular around here for years. But I’ve always wanted to make the version with cauliflower, instead of broccoli.

You may have heard of my love for cauliflower. I recently posted this Bulgarian Easy Pickled Vegetables Recipe using cauliflower. I’ve also shared some other cauliflower soup recipes, like this Cauliflower Kale Soup, Roasted Cauliflower and Asparagus Soup Recipe, Cauliflower and Olive Tapenade and also this Roasted Cauliflower And Boursin Soup.

Why I love this particular Cauliflower Cheese Soup recipe  so much is because it is made with minimal ingredients, in minimal steps and uses no heavy cream or milk.

Yeah, I haven’t used cream or milk in this sou, but there is lots of white cheddar cheese in it.

I first cooked some onion and garlic in butter, then added the cauliflower florets and water. I also used a seasoning called Vegetta which combined with the water plays the role of vegetable stock. But if you don’t want to use it, you can just use vegetable stock.

Then cooked the cauliflower until tender. I like to blend 1/2 of the soup and leave the rest of the cauliflower florets whole (slightly smashed), so the soup stays chunky. I then add the cheese and adjust the taste by adding more slat and pepper, if necessary.

If you prefer smooth and creamy soups, you can just blend the whole soup.
