Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

A creamy soup without the cream! This soup has a smooth & velvety texture thanks to the Good Hemp Milk and soft cauliflower, while the crispy bacon sprinkled on top provides a great texture. This recipe can use strong mature cheddar or blue cheese to pack a real punch! Serve this dish for lunch or dinner alongside some crusty bread for a filling meal.

  • Serves 4
  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Gluten Free

What you’ll need:

  • 3 tbsp Good Hemp Oil
  • 600 ml Good Hemp Milk
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 150ml vegetable stock
  • 100g bacon, finely chopped
  • 100g mature cheddar / blue cheese, grated
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • salt and pepper

Method:

  1. In a large saucepan, gently heat the Good Hemp Oil and add the onion and garlic. Cook over a low heat until soft and translucent.
  2. Add the cumin to the pan and cook for a further 2 minutes. Break the cauliflower into florets, discarding the stem, and add to the pan.
  3. Pour in the Good Hemp Milk and the vegetable stock. Bring to a boil and add the bay leaf, reduce the heat and cover. Cook for around 10 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.
  4. Meanwhile, add the chopped bacon to a small frying pan. Fry over a medium heat until the bacon is really crispy and then transfer to some kitchen towel to drain away excess fat.
  5. Once the cauliflower is cooked, remove the saucepan from the heat and remove the bay leaf. Blend the soup using a hand-held blender or transfer to a blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Return the soup to the heat until just below boiling point. Remove from the heat again and stir in the cheese until completely melted.
  7. Ladle into warm bowls and top with some of the crispy bacon crumbles. Drizzle over a little extra Good Hemp Oil if desired.
