This cauliflower soup is one of my favorite soup recipes, because it is packed with veggies and low in sodium. I love making soups when its cold outside. This recipe makes a lot of servings, so its great to have in the refrigerator for lunch or dinner on those days during the week when you are too busy to cook a full meal. Cauliflower isn’t very flavorful by itself, so the carrots, onion, garlic and sour cream add a lot of flavor to this comforting soup. I remember when I first started cooking I had no idea how to cut up a cauliflower, so I added in some photos below that should be helpful to you. Just remember to remove all of the foliage first before chopping away! *I used almost all organic ingredients for this recipe, but I know in some places it is hard to find access to many organic products.
- 1 head cauliflower, washed and chopped
- 4 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
- 4 celery stalks, chopped
- ½ onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp butter
- 4 cups chicken broth (or water + 3 tsp chicken bouillon)
- 2 tbsp parsley
- 1 tsp pepper
- ½ cup sour cream
- ¼ cup milk
- Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat.
- Add celery, onion and garlic and simmer for 7 minutes.
- Add chopped carrots and stir.
- Add chopped cauliflower and 4 cups of chicken broth (or water + 3 tsp chicken bouillon) and bring to a boil.
- Add parsley and pepper, and boil for 15 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let cool uncovered 5 minutes.
- Transfer ½ to blender, and ½ to a large container (such as a large measuring cup).
- Puree both halves of the soup to give it a nice texture, and transfer back to pot.
- If needed, reheat over medium heat. Stir in milk and sour cream and serve immediately. Garnish with parsley.

Yum! Looks wonderful!! This week I made soup, used the blender to puree it and it exploded everywhere! lol Going to make your recipe next week!!
Oh noo that has happened to me so many times :/
I make the same soup, same recipe almost but I roast my cauliflower and garlic (a whole head) and instead of sour cream and milk I use 6 oz plain greek yogurt. Its quickly become one of my favorite soups.
Sounds delish! I will have to try that 🙂
Great recipe! I added a bit more garlic because I am a garlic freak. I feel healthier when I eat it, AND its so good 🙂
Yummy! I made this soup for my boys this past weekend and it was a huge hit. I added some croutons on top and serve it with warm bread. Very healthy.
