Quick Cauliflower Soup

All you need is three ingredients and 15 minutes to make this family favorite recipe for Quick Cauliflower Soup.

Three bowls with Quick Cauliflower Soup topped with roasted chickpeas

You read that right: three ingredients and 15 minutes.

Sound too good to be true? I’d be quite skeptical that such a minimal ingredient list and fast prep time could yield something other than ordinary, but let me sum up this recipe for Quick Cauliflower Soup in three (accurate) adjectives…

Cauliflower in large pot and in slotted spoon

Don’t let that last one leave you reaching for your stretchy pants because despite the insanely creamy texture of this soup, there is not one ounce of dairy (be it milk, heavy cream or butter) in this concoction.

It’s 100% cauliflower, stock (veggie or chicken) and a splash of good ol’ fashioned EVOO.

Blender with Quick Cauliflower Soup and spoon

It forms the ultimate veggie soup base upon which to let your soup topping freak flag fly.

Chopped fresh herbs? Always. Any type of cheese imaginable? Duh. Crunchy chickpeas? Heck yes. Bacon? Yes, yes and yessssss. Keep it simple and serve this silky-smooth soup in shooters for a quick party appetizer, or make a big batch to have on hand for hectic weeknights when you just need something that’s warm, comforting and won’t break the calorie (or moolah) bank.
