Roasted Cauliflower Cheddar Soup

Roasted Cauliflower Cheddar Soup


  • 1 large head cauliflower (2 - 2 1/2 lb), cored and chopped into small, bite size pieces
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 (14 oz) can low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp dried parsley or 1 Tbsp chopped fresh
  • 1/4 tsp (slightly heaping) dried thyme or 1 tsp chopped fresh
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 oz shredded sharp white cheddar cheese , shredded (1 cup), plus more for serving if desired
  • 1 oz finely grated parmesan cheese (slightly packed 1/4 cup)



Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place cauliflower on baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and toss to evenly coat, then spread into an even layer and season lightly with salt and pepper.

Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add in onion and saute until tender, about 4 - 5 minutes. Add in flour and cook, stirring constantly 1 1/2 minutes, adding in garlic during last 30 seconds of cooking.

While whisking, slowly pour in milk followed by chicken broth and cream. Add in parsley, thyme, bay leaf, sugar, roasted cauliflower and season soup with salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/2 tsp salt but this may vary depending on how much salt you added to your cauliflower and how much salt you prefer).

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then reduce heat to low. Puree 3 cups of the soup in a blender (being careful as your working with hot liquids) and return to soup in pot.

Remove from heat and stir in sharp white cheddar and parmesan cheese. Serve warm garnished with additional shredded white cheddar and serve with fresh bread or croutons if desired.

Hamburger Stew Recipe (no tomato option)

Hamburger Stew Recipe (no tomato option)

Hamburger Stew Recipe (no tomato option)


Have an allergy to 🍅 tomatoes or an auto immune disorder? Tomatoes are a night shade vegetable and some people can’t have it. I have found it’s easy to substitute tomatoes with tomatillos or green chilies in Mexican style dishes. It’s easy to use puréed beets (golden or red) to add to recipes like soup and stew in place of canned tomatoes.



2 Tbsp olive oil

1 lb Holy Cow hamburger meat 

6 cloves garlic, diced

1 medium onion, chopped

1 large green bell pepper, chopped

2 ribs celery, chopped

2 carrots, peeled and chopped (or use shredded)

1 cup frozen peas

2 russet potatoes, chopped (I used purple)

1  (14 Oz can diced tomatoes)

1 large can tomato sauce

*4 cups puréed golden beets (If doing no tomato, instead of diced tomatoes and tomato sauce use 4 cups puréed golden beets- like to keep this frozen and on hand for thickening soups)

32 Oz box chicken or veggie stock

Thyme, garlic, salt, & pepper to taste

(Any other veggies you have frozen and on hand? Just throw them in 😉I added some okra to this)


Start off with a nice stock pot add the oil then onions, garlic, bell pepper, & celery. Add hamburger meat and brown. Then add carrots, potatoes, frozen peas, tomatoes or beets, and chicken or veggie stock. Cool until meat is cooked thru and potatoes are done. Season to taste and serve with your favorite cornbread or crusty bread.

  • Season with pepper, and serve.


* You can use turkey sausage instead of pork sausage to make a healthier Zuppa Toscana.


** For Paleo and Whole 30 Zuppa Toscana, substitute the potatoes with chopped cauliflower florets. And use the dairy-free option below.


*** For dairy-free Zuppa Toscana, substitute heavy cream with cold coconut cream. Make sure that your can of coconut milk is refrigerated and use only the solid white cream from the can.



This soup freezes well, just omit the cream and the kale when freezing. Add them to the soup when you reheat it before serving.
