Pressure cooker and instant pot recipes may be popular and very widespread, but personally I enjoy a soup simmering on my stovetop, making the whole house smell of tasty, cheesy goodness. This creamy soup is definitely a cozy companion on those chillier days. With cauliflower florets combined with carrots and celery, there’s no replacing a tasty homemade soup.
The best cauliflower soup is one that you make at home that is immediately devoured! The end result of this recipe is a low-carb soup that has a rich flavor and makes up an easy dinner!
Here are some good reasons to make this soup tonight:

This recipe is a delicious and cheesy cauliflower soup. It combines carrot, celery, onion, and cauliflower to make the perfect blast of benefits all together in one dish! Along with that, there’s milk to make it nice and creamy. While some people may use heavy cream in a soup to make it creamy, I think this soup is just right with milk. Top with some chopped green onions and you’re good to go!
Cauliflower is rich in antioxidants and fiber. Carrots are filled with beta-carotene and onions are anti-inflammatory. Along with that, the celery supports your digestive system and garlic boosts your immune system. It also helps to keep this soup low carb. Enjoy this healthy and filling soup!
