Meatless Monday: Cauliflower Bisque with Gorgonzola

Cauliflower simmering away
Ever since I picked up cauliflower bisque from Soupcon  a few weeks ago, I've been trying to find the perfect recipe to replicate and try to make my own at home. After searching the web, I have a miss match of recipes I'm going off of and I think I found the right one combination

The recipes was so creamy, rich and velvety, that you really don't need much more to each than a bowl of soup and maybe a slice of bread to help clean the bowl out.

Happy Meatless Monday!

Cauliflower Bisque with Gorgonzola
modified from CDKitchen.com

1 small onion, diced or leeks, chopped (used onion)
2 tablespoons celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 small cauliflower, cut into small chunks
salt and pepper
3 cups veggie broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
Gorgonzola cheese to taste

Directions:
In a 3-quart saucepan, saute the onion or leek and celery in the butter until tender (about 5 min). Add the chopped cauliflower, a bit of salt and pepper and the broth; bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to low; cover and simmer until the cauliflower is very tender, about 20-25 minutes.

Use a stick blender to puree the soup until completely smooth and thick. Add the cream; mix well. Add salt and pepper, if needed (go easy as Gorgonzola is salty). Put soup in a bowl and sprinkle with parsley and Gorgonzola and stir in until melted.

  1. I finally tried this soup, and it was a total hit. My kids were actually begging me to make it again the following week but I didn't have cauliflower so I used broccoli and changed the Gorgonzola to sharp cheddar: another one that the family now loves!
