If you are looking for a healthy vegetarian soup recipe, then you must make this cauliflower and celery soup. It is a delicious light meal made from basic ingredients with so much flavour. My friend introduced me to this soup many moons ago and I can’t wait for you to make it at home. And of course, with Gus being my food critique, he suggested the addition of lemon to the recipe. Lemon takes this soup from great to fantastic!
If you have cauliflower in the fridge, you probably have everything else you will need and it can all be ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. This is a fantastic family dinner topped with crusty bread and tastes even better for lunch the following day.
If you have never tried cauliflower soup, trust me, it’s delicious

Notes From Rouba
*Top individual bowls of soup with my oven-roasted cauliflower crisps. These are always my side dishes to this soup and I use them as a garnish too.
*Garnish with whatever you have on hand. This is what I love about this soup. Your choice of parsley, spring onion, chives or coriander. I love them all!!!
Step 1. Add cauliflower, potato, onion, celery, 2 tablespoons of butter and water to a large pot. Boil over medium heat for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender and soft.
Remove from heat. Add Italian herbs and stir through. Puree with a stick blender or in a food processor. Blend until completely smooth. If you prefer a thinner consistency, add more water
Add the extra 1 tablespoon of butter to the pureed cauliflower and simmer for further 5 minutes. Add cream and lemon juice. Season with salt.
Garnish with whatever you have on hand. This is what I love about this soup. your choice of parsley, spring onion, chives or coriander. I love them all!!!
