Cook It - Cauliflower, Potato, and Corn Soup

One of the top things that I love about the winter months is eating a warm, comforting bowl of soup. Nothing warms you up quite like it. I also love the ease of soups. For the most part is a one pot meal. Just throw in all your ingredients and let it simmer away until all the flavors meld into a glorious rich broth. One of my new favorite winter soups is my version of a winter vegetable soup. Full of cauliflower, red potatoes, carrots, and corn this soup is not only comforting, but good for you as well. Heck, it is pretty much the only way I can get my husband to eat cauliflower!

Cauliflower, Potato, and Corn Soup - Warm Winter Soup Recipe


The Ingredients:
  • 2 medium red potatoes chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • 4-5 carrots diced
  • 1 small head of cauliflower 
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2-3 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • olive oil for sauteing
  • 1 - 32 ounce container of Chicken Stock (I like Kitchen Basics brand) Or sub vegetable broth for a vegetarian version
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  •  1/4 cup heavy cream
  • peppered bacon pieces, shaved Parmesan, and green onions for garnish (optional)

Begin by sauteing the potatoes, carrots, onion, and cauliflower over medium heat until the onions begin to soften and caramelize. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and simmer over medium-low heat until the cauliflower and potatoes soften. Remove the thyme stems and serve with peppered bacon, Parmesan, and a few chopped green onions. For a vegetarian soup, simply omit the bacon and use vegetable stock instead of the chicken stock. And for a vegan option, simply omit the cream and Parmesan cheese too. All three ways taste just as good!

The soup is full of veggie goodness and the fresh herbs really lend it a earthy, winter-y taste. It goes great with a nice piece of crusty french bread too!
