Comfort Food: Cheesy Cauliflower & Carrot Soup

IMG_20150204_185740It has been snowing for 3 days.  I’ve been shoveling for 3 days.  You know what I didn’t want to take 3 days?  Supper!  So it was off to the fridge to find something to make.  I found a carrot. I found a half head of cauliflower and rest as they say was history!

 

 

 

Cheesy Cauliflower & Carrot Soup

  • 20150204_1816351 onion chopped
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 1 Carrot – peeled and diced
  • 8 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 TB Rosemary & Herb seasoning
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded old cheddar
  • 1/4 cup grated fresh parmesan cheese + some on reserve for garnish
  • (optional) chopped green onion for garnish

In a saucepan saute the onions and garlic until onion is soft.  Add vegetable stock or use chicken stock/broth (I make veggie stock and freeze in 2, 4 or 8 cup batches for recipes like this 🙂 ) – bring to boil add whole jalapeno – this will not give it heat just some flavour,  add carrots and cauliflower and rosemary & herb mixture & pepper.  Bring back to boil and simmer for 15 min or until veggies are very soft). Remove from heat and remove jalapeno.  Put  soup thru blender or use a hand blender right in the stockpot!  Blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning to taste and slowly add milk.  Simmer for an additional 10 min. Add cheeses and stir until melted.   Serve and top each bowl with some of the additional parmesan cheese and green onions.  enJoy.  like this recipe?  let me know! like this post and follow my blog for more!
