Cheesy broccoli cauliflower soup

This hearty soup is made with nourishing vegetables and an irresistible creamy soup base with chicken broth, cream, and cheddar cheese. It’s done in 30 minutes and is perfect for a cold fall or winter night.

First, cook bacon until crispy, then set aside. Then add cauliflower and broccoli to a large pot with water and broth. Simmer for a couple of minutes, then add butter and cream. Finally, add cheese, bacon, and spices. Simmer the soup on low, stirring occasionally until the soup is ready to serve!

Tips for the cauliflower broccoli soup recipe

  • If you like your soup silky-smooth, use an immersion blender and pulse until smooth.
  • Add crispy croutons as a deliciously crunchy garnish to the broccoli cauliflower soup.
  • To turn this broccoli cauliflower soup into a vegan soup, use vegetable broth, coconut milk or coconut cream instead of regular cream, and omit cheese and bacon. Sprinkle nutritional yeast on top.
  • Add a kick of spice by adding a good drizzle of hot sauce to the cauliflower broccoli soup – we like Sriracha and Cholula!

1. To make the broccoli cauliflower cheese soup: In a large skillet, cook bacon to desired crispiness. Drain from the fat, chop, and set aside. Mix onion powder, garlic powder, and thyme in a small bowl.

2. In a large pot or dutch oven, add water, chicken broth, cauliflower, and broccoli, with a dash of salt and ground black pepper; cover and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes.

3. After simmering for 4 or 5 minutes, add butter, and cream to the cauliflower and broccoli and stir well to combine. Then, add cheese and stir slowly until melted. Add 2/3 of the cooked bacon and season with the mixed spices and herbs. Adjust the soup’s seasoning with salt and ground black pepper, to taste. Cover and simmer the soup for another 5 to 8 minutes on low, stirring occasionally.

4. Divide the broccoli cauliflower cheese soup into bowls. Top the soup with remaining crispy bacon and more cheese if you like. Enjoy! ❤️

    Just made this and it was AMAZING!! Hubby wanted it for supper after seeing cauliflower soup on my 2 year olds favorite cartoon, Trash Truck! It was super simple! I did change it up a tab bit for our liking. Instead of 5 strips of bacon, I used 1 12oz pack of bacon and I also used 2 cups of cheese instead of 1. Added a little more of each seasoning as we are from Louisiana and "eyeball" our seasonings. Sprinkled a little bit of hot jalapeno and habanero jack cheese and green onions on top. My baby boy ate A LOT of it too!! Will definitely make more and freeze! This is our new favorite! Thank you for the recipe!!!!!!

    I added double the chicken broth and water as well as additional cheese. There still was not quite enough liquid. I would say 2 cups of water and broth would help. I also used 2% milk as that was what was on hand. It turned out great, nice flavor. I liked the bacon to add an extra layer of flavor.

    I found there was not near enough liquid for the amount of vegetables. Not sure what I did wrong. I added an extra cup of chicken broth. Also used my immersion blender to help mix things up. Sorry, not my favorite recipe.
