Simple Cauliflower Soup Recipe

clipped from


  • Florets from one head of cauliflower (tough core of cauliflower discarded)

  • 1 quart of water

  • Salt

  • Butter

  • Chives

  • Olive oil


1 Bring
water to a rolling boil
Add the cauliflower florets, and cook until cooked through, about 4 minutes.

2 Working in batches, fill a blender half-way with cooked cauliflower, add enough cooking water to the blender bowl so that it comes up a quarter of the way. Purée until smooth. You want the consistency to be that of soup, so if you need to add more water, do so. For each blender batch, add salt and butter to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and about a tablespoon or more of butter for each blender batch). Since you are using only lightly salted cooking water for a base, not stock, you will need to salt this more than you would otherwise.

3 Serve immediately into bowls. Drizzle olive oil over the top and sprinkle with chopped chives.
