As always with a soup, please don’t get too hung up on exact ingredients or measurements. This is rustic cooking with a “use whatever you have” attitude. Nothing too exact is required.

Tips to make the best Cauliflower and Vegetable Soup

  • If you felt you wanted a protein boost, you could add a can of drained and rinsed cannellini beans during the cooking process. They will blend beautifully in the soup, making it even more creamy and smooth.
  • To enhance the flavor add a few red pepper flakes, dried herbs such as Herbes de Provence, and fresh herbs like parsley, marjoram, or thyme.
  • Frozen butternut squash cooks quicker than raw, so if you’re in a rush consider it an option.
  • Squeezing some lemon juice into the soup before serving is a lovely addition that will “lift” the flavor.
  • Adding a variety of toppings is a nice way to add some texture and interest to a blended soup.
