Recipe instructions Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Celery

  1. Step 1

    Heat a big pot, put in the olive oil, garlic, and onions. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the onions are soft.

  2. Step 2

    Add the cauliflower, carrots, celery, potatoes, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Stir everything together. Pour in the chicken broth and let it simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until everything is soft.

  3. Step 3

    In a medium-sized pan, melt the butter. Blend in the flour until it forms a paste. Gradually pour in the milk while whisking until it becomes smooth. Add the cheese then whisk again until it melts completely forming a slightly thickened mixture.

  4. Step 4

    Gradually pour the mixture into the soup while stirring until it is completely combined.

  5. Step 5

    To achieve a thick and smooth texture, use an immersion blender to blend half of the soup. You can blend half the soup in a blender or with a handheld masher. Stir until the soup is smooth, although it will have small chunks and thicken. Simmer for 5 more minutes.

  6. Step 6

    Sprinkle more shredded cheese on top of the soup, and serve with fresh bread or toasted baguette slices. Enjoy!
