Cauliflower soup with pesto and cheese

I've been making cauliflower puree for months now and I thought it was time for soup!

Cauliflower soup

The recipes look alike I only added stock here. I love very thick soups so I'm always very careful with how much stock I add.

The best part of soup is that you can pretty much add anything. I only used cauliflower here, but you could add potato or zuccini.


Pesto and cauliflower is a great combination. Garnish the soup with the pesto and grated cheese. Want to make your own pesto? Look here for the recipe.

  • Heat up a bit of oil and sweat the onion and garlic.

  • When the cauliflower has cooked, puree everything. If the soup is too thin, cook it down. Too thick? Add more stock.
