cauliflower cheese soup Cauliflower Cheese is one of our favourite week night dinner.  I’ve been making it for the kids since they were babies and thankfully they love it.  There is something comforting about it, just like a good old fashioned mac and cheese.

We often eat soups too and I was getting bored with the same old, same old recipes so decided to try something different and make a cauliflower cheese soup.  Mr D thought I was totally mad and that it was sure to taste disgusting.

Miraculously it did not!  I think I even surprised myself.  It was delicious and you so have to give it a try.

Here is the recipe.

  1. Oh ya baby! I loves Cauliflower Cheese soup and the bacon undertones push it over the top! In fact, for dinner tonight I had a huge pile of Varoma-steamed cauliflower and broccoli with cheese sauce on top. Just that, nothing else. Only thing I do a bit different is that I add a pinch of nutmeg to this type of dish, as I find it complements all the other flavours very well. (Just enough to add a nuance of nutmeg, not so that you really taste it… if that makes sense) 😉 Keep on mixing, and I’ll keep on reading!

    • Thanks for the tip, will definitely try that next time. Broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce is one of our favourites too. Soo good and so easy x

  2. Hi, My friend has just loaned me her Thermie whilst away for a week and this was my first recipe. It was yummy and really easy to follow. I also added a pinch of ground nutmeg and halved the ingredients which was just enough for 2 as a small bowl of soup 🙂
