Cauliflower Cheese Soup Recipe

These winter days call for hearty, warming soups and I wanted to share a recipe for one of our favourites at the OMB Tadcaster family table. This is a rich and creamy cauliflower cheese soup to enjoy with crusty bread – perfect after a weekend walk.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 40 minutes


Knob of Butter and tbsp of oil

1 large white onion, finally chipped

1 large cauliflower, cut into florets

1 potato, peeled and cut into chunks

700ml vegetable stock (you can vary this depending on how thick you want your soup)

400ml Full Fat milk (you can add a percentage of cream to make this soup even more rich)

100g mature cheddar cheese (also amazing with Manchego Cheese)

Several leaves of sage (or favourite herb)

Salt and white pepper to taste

Crispy Bacon (Optional)


Measure, chop and prepare all of the ingredients and begin to heat a large pan (which will ultimately be able to contain the large liquid quantity) on the hob. Once the butter has begun to melt, add all of the ingredients (except the stock, milk, cheese and bacon) and slowly cook down until the onions are becoming translucent. Add the stock and bring the soup to a simmer. After 10 minutes add the milk and cheese and continue to simmer for a further 25 minutes, stirring regularly.

I remove the sage (herb leaves) at the end of the cooking time as they can over power the flavour of the soup a little but this is really your choice. Once the potatoes are soft, the cauliflower has broken down and all ingredients are added, blend the soup within the cooking pan being careful not to splash yourself with hot soup (I use a tea towel essentially wrapped around my hand held blender which is big enough to also drape over the cooking pan to ensure any splashes are caught).

Once placed into a serving bowl, crumble the bacon across the top of the soup to add a salty, crunchy and amazing finishing touch to the indulgent and stunning soup.

Serve with thick, freshly baked bread with lashings of butter – delicious!!!

Buddug Cope What a brilliant day @ One Mile Bakery Tadcaster! My friends and I had a great time in a wonderful kitchen, baking four different loaves over a day as part of the Introduction to Baking course, stopping for a delicious lunch and refreshments to keep us going. I well and truly recommend this baking experience as a great way to catch up with and have fun with friends. Fantastic, and thank you Phil!

Hawaiian Buns, who knew mixing buttermilk, pineapple juice, butter, eggs, fresh yeast and organic white flour could have such amazing results. Tangy, soft and loved by the family.
