When it’s cold and dark outside, don’t you just want to curl up in front of the fire with a bowl of hot soup and maybe a nice glass of red wine.
What could be better than ladling out a steaming hot bowl of low-carb cauliflower cheese soup, sprinkling over some fresh herbs and knowing that you are getting a low-carb meal that is also full of healthy vegetables.
This delicious low-carb cauliflower cheese soup uses only 5 ingredients and will be on your table in 30 minutes. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Do your kids or partner, not like cauliflower?
The addition of cream cheese does a good job of disguising the cauliflower flavor and takes the taste to a whole new level.

How to make Cauliflower Cheese Soup
This recipe is so simple to make – start with around 500g of cauliflower or half a large head of cauliflower.
Start by sauteing the garlic in some olive oil, in a large saucepan.
Wash and break, or cut off the florets. I usually chop the florets in half as this helps them cook quicker.
Add the chicken stock or broth, the cream cheese and some salt and pepper and stir.
Now, you simply add the cauliflower to the liquid. The cauliflower should be mostly submerged. Give it a good stir and bring to the boil.
Once boiling point is reached, reduce the heat way down and let the soup simmer for around 20 minutes or until the cauliflower is cooked.
I test the cauliflower by sticking a sharp knife into the cauliflower. If it goes in easily, then it is cooked. If it is still a bit hard then cook for another 3-5 minutes.
Then, I get out my trusty handheld immersion blender and blend the soup.
If you don’t have one you can transfer the soup to a food processor or blender.
Whichever method you choose, be careful as the soup will be very hot.
Or, you could cut the cauliflower up into very small pieces and you will have a chunky style soup instead.
Serve the soup with a good grind of pepper and some fresh green herbs sprinkled on top – I like coriander or basil.
