Tackle the Cold with Cauliflower Bisque

Oh Midwestern friends, I see some of you are talking of snow today. Well, it IS November and we should be thankful for the lovely weather we’ve had thus far. Still…seeing the while stuff on the ground makes what’s to come, all the more real.

For those of you bundled up in your homes, here’s a little sumtin’ sumtin’ to keep your bellies warm. I posted this on twitter a few days back. So many people requested the recipe, that I thought I’d post it for you all to enjoy. Serve it with some hot, Apple Cheddar Scones and you’ve got yourself a comforting meal.

Knowing a basic soup recipe can greatly open up your cooking world. If you like this one, next time get more creative. How about making the same soup, but use broccoli instead of cauliflower? Top off  the bowl with peanut butter chicken or marinated shrimp? Or substitute the curry powder for cumin?  For even more fun, ask your children what THEY would like in the soup. You will quickly find the possibilities are endless.

Cauliflower Bisque
  • 1 Small head cauliflower, cut into small chunks
  • 1 Small onion, diced (or 2.5 oz. chopped leeks)
  • 2 T celery, finely chopped
  • 2 T Butter
  • 3 c. Chicken Broth (homemade if possible)
  • 1/2 c. Heavy Cream (or Half & Half)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 T Fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Optional: Curry powder, shredded cheese, bacon, scallions
  1. In 3 qt. saucepan, saute onion and celery in butter. Add chopped cauliflower, a bit of salt and pepper and broth; bring to a boil.
  2. Turn down heat to low. Cover and simmer until cauliflower is very tender (20-25 mins.)
  3. Puree soup, preferably with a stick blender – but a regular blender will work too (just be careful blending hot liquid!)
  4. Add cream and stir in parsley. Add curry and toppings if you’d like.

I like to use all organic ingredients for this soup. Don’t worry if you don’t like curry; just leave it out or experiment with other spices. My family loves this bisque topped with shredded cheddar and bacon – like a loaded stuffed potato. Also great for low carb diets.
