Hidden Vegetable Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Hidden Vegetable Broccoli Cheddar Soup

It may be silly to get excited over soup, but I am just over the moon with my Hidden Vegetable Broccoli Cheddar Soup. It's healthy, requires minimal effort to make and, most importantly, is delicious!

Let's start with the taste and texture. Cauliflower is the powerhouse ingredient in this recipe. When it gets blended with vegetable broth, it transforms into a thick and creamy soup base (save your milk and butter for one of my dessert recipes!). Each bite has that velvety smooth texture you associate with cream based soup. You will taste whispers of roasted garlic and nutty roasted cauliflower with a sharp and tangy bite from the cheese. I decided to roast the vegetables because I wanted to enhance the natural flavors of the soup. The cheddar compliments existing flavors as opposed to serving as a "flavor crutch". 

Speaking of which, the recipe is very easily customizable (unlike my dessert recipes). I really wanted to recreate the classic broccoli cheddar soup and if that sounds good to you too, follow the recipe as written. But the great thing is, you don't NEED the cheese. Those roasted vegetables I was talking about? So much delicious flavor on their own! Leave the cheese out and you will have an amazing dairy free/vegan cauliflower broccoli soup. Two cups of cheese too much for you? Reduce it. Just keep in mind the more the cheese is reduced, the more you will get that roasted cauliflower flavor - less of a "whisper" of cauliflower and more a normal speaking voice. 

Another thing I love about the recipe? It's incredibly easy to make! Mostly everything goes in the oven then you blend, heat and eat.
