Broccoli Cauliflower Soup

A staunch vegetable skeptic for much of my childhood, I was eventually convinced of broccoli’s appeal via cheesy soups like this Broccoli Cauliflower Soup.

The bread bowl my mom let me order the soup in probably helped too (thank you, Panera!).

Now that I’m the one doing the cooking, healthy soup recipes appeal to me more than ever before. Soup tastes great leftover for lunches and dinners, and it stores and reheats like a dream. Be sure to indulge in some well-deserved back patting when you pull a container of this broccoli cauliflower soup from the freezer (assuming you have any leftover to freeze that is).

You’ll also feel accomplished knowing that the rich, comforting meal you are enjoying is primarily composed of vegetables, with some wisely selected additions (ahem, CHEESE!).

This hearty soup stars broccoli and cauliflower, along with a handful of carrots. It tastes wonderfully rich and creamy and is made of simple, wholesome ingredients. (Spoiler: if you are looking for a broccoli cauliflower cheese soup Velveeta recipe, this is not the one.)

If, however, you are looking for a homemade, healthy broccoli cauliflower soup that tastes like the real deal, this recipe has you covered! A few simple swaps keep it on the lighter side, and it doesn’t skip an ounce of flavor.

This recipe is first cousin to my Instant Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup and second cousin to Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup.

Like those two soup recipes, it’s a super satisfying vegetarian meal that you’ll devour by the spoonful. The difference here is that I’ve upped the cauliflower ratio, which makes it even thicker and creamier, and this recipe cooks directly on the stovetop, no special appliances required. (more…)
