Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower — medium, ( about5 cups)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion — medium, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 tbsp Vegeta
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • chopped bacon for garnishing
  • chopped parsley for garnishing
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg — optional

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan or pot, melt butter. Add onion and cook for 1 minute. Add garlic and cook for one more minute.

  2. Add cauliflower, water, Vegeta, black pepper and nutmeg to the pot. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until cauliflower is tender.

  3. Transfer 1/2 of the soup to a blender, and blend until smooth. Pout back to the pot. Add cheddar cheese. Stir. 

  4. Taste and add more salt and black pepper, if needed.

  5. To serve, garnish with bacon and chopped parsley.

Recipe Notes

I used a seasoning called Vegeta, which combined with water acts like vegetable stock in this recipe. Vegeta contains salt.
Feel free to use 5 cups vegetable stock instead.
