This delicious cauliflower soup is a simple pureed soup that’s thickened with white cheddar cheese and flavored with onion and garlic. The soup is gluten free and can be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable stock for chicken stock. If you’re vegan, add potatoes instead of cheese or simply use vegan cheese. The soup comes together real quickly and is very flavorful and creamy.
