Cauliflower, Cheese and Jalapeno Soup

I love cauliflower cheese, and to add some Jalapeno peppers and make a soup with it just seems the perfect comfort food for the cold weather.   Or when you fancy a cheesey soup!

 

INGREDIENTS

1 head of cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets

1 onion, peeled and chopped

3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

4 jalapeno peppers, deseeded and chopped

500ml stock (I use vegetable but you could use chicken too)

1/2 tspn garlic powder

2 cups grated Cheddar Cheese

2 tblspn olive oil

salt and pepper

METHOD

  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the garlic, jalapeno and onions.  Cook for about 5 minutes until soft.
  • Add the cauliflower florets and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add stock and garlic powder, bring to the boil, then simmer for about 20 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.
  • Add the cheddar cheese and season to taste.  Cook for about 5 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  • Serve, slurp and enjoy!

    This has a good flavor with a little kick. I followed this directions and the soup doesn’t look like this! You really should mention in the directions that it needs to be blended and I don’t know what kind of cheese you used but it wasn’t cheddar. My soup was yellow. I just think that when you post a picture of a recipe it should be what it looks like after having followed the recipe. Many times I pick a recipe because of the way it looks.

      Charlene, I used Cheddar Cheese…considering there are many varieties which can vary from country too, this would account for the difference in colour. The pictures I use are for each recipe and are taken after I have made them.
