Super Quick and Simple Cheddar Cauliflower Soup

Cheddar Cauliflower Soup is a super quick, simple, and tasty vegetarian meal for a busy weekday or a lazy weekend. Done in as little as 30 minutes with a handful of ingredients. That is the beauty of this recipe is it is so quick and simple with amazing flavors. It is rich and hearty.

I originally found this recipe in the William Sonoma catalog years ago. It has become one of our top five soups we regularly have on our table during the winter. I have swapped out ingredients to make it vegetarian as well as used white pepper. It is a flexible soup allowing you to use broths and diary you have on had.

Just add some crusty bread. If you are feeling fancy or have a crowd, then a cheese and/or charcuterie board could be added. A warm and yummy dinner is served.
