Cheesy Cauliflower Soup (Gluten-free)

Posted Dec 13 2012 10:51am

Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables. It’s so versatile! I’ve used it to make pizza , fried rice , and even mashed potatoes . Surprisingly, though, I have yet to feature it in a soup.

Until now.

Even if you don’t love cauliflower, you’ll probably enjoy this soup. It’s an easy, filling way to add more vegetables into your day, but because it’s laced with sharp raw goat cheddar, it tastes much more decadent than it actually is. Cheese really does make everything taste better.

Consider this a delicious alternative to broccoli-cheese soup, without the use of any heavy flours or thickeners!

(Gluten-free)
serves 6-8

Adapted from Jamie Oliver

Ingredients:

1 pat of grass-fed butter
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery sticks, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium onions, chopped
1 head cauliflower, about 1 1/2 lbs., chopped into florets
2 quarts filtered water
1 teaspoon stone-ground mustard
6 oz. raw goat cheddar , shredded
Himalayan sea salt, to taste

Directions:

In a large stock pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the chopped carrots, onions, celery, garlic and cauliflower, and saute for about 10 minutes, until the onions are lightly golden. Pour in the 2 quarts of water, making sure the vegetables are covered, then bring the mixture to a boil. Give it a stir, then reduce the heat and cover with a lid, allowing the soup to simmer for 10 minutes.

Season generously with salt, the shredded cheddar and mustard, then blend the soup using an immersion blender , food processor or blender – whichever method you prefer. If using a blender, be careful! Only blend small batches at a time, and beware of the lid popping off due to steam pressure. I tried using an immersion blender for this, but it didn’t produce the silky-smooth texture I was looking for. A large food processor is probably the best option!

Serve piping hot, topped with grated nutmeg or additional cheese, if desired.
