Cauliflower cheese…one of those excellent side dishes on a wintry evening. It’s a classic that we wanted to try a slightly different spin on, so here are all those comforting flavours in a soup. Serve with cheese toasties for a double cheese hit!


  • 20 g olive oil

  • 200g onions, diced

  • 1 garlic clove, diced

  • 750g cauliflower, leaves trimmed, cut in small pieces or florets

  • 600g vegetable stock

  • ¾ tsp fine sea salt

  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 dried bay leaf

  • 100g milk

  • 100g Cheddar cheese, grated, plus extra grated for garnishing

  • 10g fresh chives, snipped in lengths (3 mm), for garnishing


  • Heat oil in a large pan. Add onions and garlic. Sauté for 4 minutes.
  • Add cauliflower, stock and bay leaf. Bring to boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Remove bay leaf. Add milk and cheddar. Bring back to simmering.
  • Liquidise it all. It should be easy as cauliflower will be soft.
  • Serve hot with a sprinkling of snipped chives and a grating of Cheddar.
