German Cauliflower Soup - quick and easy, made just like Oma!

Now, if you're looking for a vegan cauliflower soup, then you really need to check out my daughter-in-law Sylvie's version of her creamy 'cheesy' vegan cauliflower soup. It's creamy, it's 'cheesy', it's rich, and quite easy to make.

I love using my cauliflower soup as a starter course for a dinner party. It has that taste of elegance. This is one of the great vegetable soups you can make when you've got an abundance of veggies.

Even veggies that are starting to be past their prime. Perhaps you've had a very successful trip to the Farmer's Market and want to enjoy something just a tad special with all those cauliflowers you bought.

Make this!

Vicki's version of the cauliflower soup recipe, with broccoli!

This variation of the cauliflower soup recipe was made by my daughter-in-law Vicki. She added a few extra ingredients into this one! Frozen broccoli, a little bit of parsley and vegeta for extra seasoning.


A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • If you do not have a immersible stick blender, and you want a real cream of cauliflower soup, you can put the cooked cauliflower with a bit of the cooking liquid into a blender before returning it to the soup.
  • Season with some nutmeg if desired.
  • Try adding a touch of lemon juice to season at the end. (Thanks to Elke Miller for suggesting this!)

Oma says,

Nutmeg is a traditional seasoning used with cauliflower in Germany. Adds an extra layer of flavour.

If my cauliflower head is larger, I'll just add enough water to cover and increase the butter/flour
