I was first introduced to this soup by purchasing a version made by Whole Foods. It was yummy but I didn’t like some of the ingredients. So I decided to make my own version and clean it up. The verdict? My soup recipe is even better and I promise you won’t miss the guar gum or canola oil.

Roasting the cauliflower first before adding it to the broth adds depth of flavor, so don’t skip that step.

I like using organic grass-fed butter in this cauliflower soup recipe. My favorite butter is from Kalona Supernatural and my second favorite is Kerrygold.

Cauliflower Soup Recipe Variations

This soup recipe is vegetarian and keto friendly. To make it Whole30 compliant, use ghee instead of butter. If you want to make a vegan version, you can omit the browned butter and use vegetable broth.

For an extra treat, top the soup with my homemade Jilly Dilly crackers.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 small heads cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  4. Add roasted cauliflower and chicken or vegetable broth, ensuring that the cauliflower is covered.
  5. Simmer mixture on low heat for 15 minutes.

  7. Add browned butter mixture to soup.
  8. Puree mixture using an immersion blender or a traditional blender. You can decide whether to make it completely smoooth or leave it a little bit chunky.
  9. Taste and add salt/pepper as desired.
