cauliflower cheese soup recipe

I love soup recipes and I love using my Morphy Richards Soup Maker. This cauliflower cheese soup recipe is one of the most recent recipes in the soup maker I’ve made and honestly, it’s super yummy and also healthy, what’s not to love?

I have made quite a few soup maker soups now and I have to say I love it. It’s much easier and cost-effective as you don’t have to use the hob. If you want to make soups, get a soup maker and you won’t be disappointed, I’ve had mine for 6 years now and it’s still going strong!

If you like Cauliflower soup or you’re a big fan of cauliflower cheese, this soup is the one for you. I feel that cauliflower gets a bad reputation on its own but in these recipes, it’s outstanding!

Cauliflower Cheese Soup Recipe

I have seen a few recipes out there for cheese and cauliflower soup but it probably won’t surprise you that I’ve changed mine up a bit. One example is I don’t use milk because I find it to be a little too watery if I do that. I also like to use Red Leicester cheese if possible as it gives it a little more colour.

Of course, if you’re making this soup recipe you can do whatever you want with it, if you want to use a different cheese, go for it! I love to play around with ingredients and try out new flavours. Something I love doing is adding chilli or smoked paprika to foods to give them a kick, you should try it if you like spicier foods.

As a healthy soup though this one is pretty straightforward, easy to make and takes half an hour at best with most of that time in the soup maker and you being able to sit back and relax.
