Your New Favorite Go-To "Cheesy" Cauliflower Soup

Hi! It's been a hot (haha) minute since I shared a recipe with you guys, hasn't it? I REALLY love creating nourishing delicious recipes like this "cheesy" cauliflower soup. You know what I don't love? Taking photos. I have a huge number of recipes to share with you guys, so if someone would like to just come take some photos for me that'd be great. ;-)

Despite my lack of enthusiasm for food photography, I felt like I couldn't keep this simple, nourishing, totally comforting soup from you any longer. Don't let the photo deter you...this bowl is packed with flavor and I know you're going to love it.

I created this on a whim one night when I still felt kind of snarky (haha..thanks autocorrect...I"ll try not to take offense to that)... SNACKY. For the record, that is a word. I wanted something that was warm, comforting, healthy, and voluminous but not super caloric since this was kind of round two for dinner. I threw together a few of my favorite ingredients and this delightful bowl of soup was born. And then it went on repeat. Last winter I frequently made this for a warm comforting (albeit unconventional) breakfast by adding rotisserie chicken and sometimes a little ghee or extra virgin olive oil.

Here are the things I love about this "cheesy" cauliflower soup:

  • You can feel really good about every single ingredient you're putting into your body with this soup.
  • If you can turn on the microwave you can make this soup and it can be put together faster than you can order something or go pick up take-out.
  • This can serve as a super satisfying snack (it only has about 140 calories but packs 20 grams of protein). This is loaded with flavor while also delivering a hefty dose of vegetables, protein, B-vitamins, and anti-inflammatory spices.
  • The soup has a "cheesy" flavor thanks to nutritional yeast. I've professed my love for this ingredient before because it's a fantastic way for vegans and vegetarians to get a complete protein and B-vitamins. It has a slightly nutty cheesy flavor that I adore.

Your New Favorite 5 Minute "Cheesy" Cauliflower Soup

This nourishing comforting soup comes together in 5 minutes and makes the perfect snack on a cold day. For only 140 calories it packs 20 grams of protein. You can easily turn it into a meal by adding rotisserie chicken or beans and adding a little nourishing ghee or extra virgin olive oil for fat.


  • 1 cup cauliflower rice, frozen*
  • 1 cup chicken bone broth
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • salt and black pepper**, to taste


  1. Pour the frozen cauliflower rice in a microwave safe bowl and cook for 4-4.5 minutes.

  2. Add the bone broth to the bowl, stir, and microwave for 1 minute.

  3. Add remaining ingredients, stir, and enjoy!

  4. Optional: To make it a quick meal I love adding rotisserie chicken. For a vegetarian option you can sub the bone broth for vegetable stock and add tofu, tempeh, lentil, or beans.

  5. Optional: Mix in a little ghee or extra virgin olive oil for a dose of healthy fats for a meal!

*I like to use ALDI's frozen cauliflower rice. Both the plain and garlic + parsley versions work great!

**Black pepper helps your body to absorb turmeric so make sure to include a pinch unless you have a sensitivity to it.
