Soup Sunday | Creamy Cauliflower & Broccoli Soup Recipe

Broccoli and cauliflower are two of my all time favorite vegetables. I was craving cauliflower so I went on a hunt for a good cauliflower soup recipe. I ran across this one on and knew it would be a hit.

Creamy Cauliflower & Broccoli Soup Recipe
Cuisine: Soup
Serves: 4
  • 1 quart chicken broth (we used vegetable broth)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 head cauliflower, finely chopped
  • ½ head broccoli, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules (again we used vegetable bouillon)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk (we used ½ and ½ for a little more creaminess)
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (we put ½ cup in and left the rest for add-ins)
  1. In a stockpot, combine broth, onion, cauliflower, and broccoli. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Continue to simmer until vegetables are tender.
  2. Season with curry powder, bouillon, salt, and pepper.
  3. In a bowl, combine flour and ½ cup of the milk, ½ and ½ or cream (depending on your desired level of “creaminess”).
  4. Whisk briskly until there are no lumps. Add mixture to soup, stirring continuously as soup thickens.
  5. Stir in desired amount of Cheddar cheese until completely melted. Although the recipe calls for 2 cups, I only put in ½ a cup and allowed everyone to add their own desired amount).
  6. If you like a little creamier soup, pull out ¼ of the soup and run through a food processor… then re-add to the soup and stir.


This was a huge hit and everyone devoured it, even the littlest kids. We have picky children when it comes to cheese so I put a minimal amount in the soup and allow everyone to add as much as they desire. Serve it chunky or run a little through the food processor like I did to “cream” it up a bit.

We served this with our Gluten Free White Bread and it was yummmmmy.

I love broccoli and cauliflower so this soup should be so delicious. I have to try it. The weather here is cooling off so now I can make it anytime. Yummy. I can eat soup when it’s hot or cold outside but my husband won’t until the weather gets cooler.

This sounds really good. I love cauliflower but usually mix it with cheese or if I’m in a “healthier” mode I use instead of potatoes. My family isn’r too crazy about it tho. I will definitely try this recipe as I’m always looking for hearty soups during the winter.
