Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Serving Size: 4


  • 1 large cauliflower head, chopped into florets
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup milk (whole or 2%)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional, for extra creaminess)
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Prepare Vegetables:
    • Chop the cauliflower into florets, dice the potatoes, and chop the onion and garlic.
  2. Sauté Onion and Garlic:
    • In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, sautéing until softened and fragrant.
  3. Add Flour and Herbs:
    • Sprinkle the flour over the sautéed onions and garlic. Stir continuously for 1-2 minutes to form a roux. Add dried thyme and rosemary, continuing to stir.
  4. Add Cauliflower and Potatoes:
    • Add the cauliflower florets and diced potatoes to the pot. Stir the vegetables to coat them with the roux.
  5. Pour in Broth:
    • Pour in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer until the cauliflower and potatoes are tender (about 15-20 minutes).
  6. Blend Soup:
    • Use an immersion blender to blend the soup until smooth. Alternatively, transfer the mixture to a blender in batches, blending until smooth. Be cautious when blending hot liquids.
  7. Add Milk and Seasonings:
    • Pour in the milk and season the soup with salt and pepper. Stir well and let it simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  8. Adjust Consistency:
    • If desired, add heavy cream for extra creaminess. Adjust the consistency with more milk or broth if needed.
  9. Check for Seasoning:
    • Taste and adjust the seasoning as per your preference.
  10. Serve:
    • Ladle the creamy cauliflower soup into bowls. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
  11. Enjoy:
    • Serve the soup hot and enjoy a comforting bowl of creamy cauliflower goodness!


  • You can also add grated cheese or croutons as additional toppings for added flavor and texture.
