Recipe: Broccoli-Cauliflower-Potato Soup

Bookmark and Share

This is a fast, hearty fall or winter soup that I have made a few times now and adapted slightly because I love cauliflower. Adapted from Food & Wine Magazine


  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-1.5 cup broccoli, chopped (include the stems, just peel and dice them)
  • 1-1.5 cup cauliflower, chopped
  • 3 cups homemade stock or broth (chicken, pork, or lamb) or veggie stock
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

Step 1
In a large pot, melt the butter over moderately low heat. Add the onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Step 2
Add the garlic, broccoli & cauliflower, potatoes, broth, water, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are almost tender, about 10 minutes.

Step 3
Using a hand immersion blender, blend until about half of the soup is pureed, but not all of it. Conversely, you could pour half of the soup into a blender, puree it, then add back to the rest of the soup. Simmer for another 5 minutes. Sprinkle on the grated cheese and serve.

Where are the potatoes in your list of ingredients. They are listed in the directions and title. How many potatoes?

The beauty of cooking like this is... there's no wrong amount of potatoes!!! Add'em & enjoy the freedom!

Good Morning - I loved your advise this month and I am going to attempt to do at least a few of your suggestions, I used to practice all of them and then didn't. I need to go back and thank you for the reminder. One thing about the recipe above. You say to add potatoes but they are not listed in the ingredients. Soup sounds simple and yummy.

I believe the potatoes were replaced by the cauliflower in the ingredients, but accidentally left in the directions.
