Cafe Zupas Cauliflower Soup

07 Oct


I love Zupas !!!!  I kind of have a tender spot in my heart for it.  Before we had one close to us, the only one around was Provo.  When Jordan was living down there, I would go and see her and we would always go there for dinner (before we went shopping)  I love almost everything there, but the cauliflower soup is one of my favorites.  It is rich and creamy and is kind of like happiness in a bowl.  I have a recipe that I love from Pioneer Woman, where the cauliflower is not blended and it is really yummy, but this is soooo good.

It is that time of year that a big bowl of soup really hits the spot.  I am so excited, because I love fall.  I love leaves changing(not raking ). I love fall decorations.  I love that I am almost done mowing my lawn. I love walks in the cool air.  I really love to turn on my fireplace at night and fall asleep in front of it.  I love football and I love fall cooking.  Soups being one the top picks on my fall list.



  1. Melt butter and chopped onion together in a large sauce pan and sauté for approximately 10 minutes over medium heat until onion gets golden in color.
  2. Add flour and stir to make a roux.  Heat while stirring for a couple of minutes.
  3. Slowly add half and half along with the milk.  Gradually add and stir the entire time.  Following the milk, gradually add water and chicken broth and stir constantly.
  4. Add chopped cauliflower and heat until boil.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until cauliflower is tender.  This will take approximately 15 minutes.
  6. Place contents of sauce pan into blender and blend until smooth. Remove center part of blender cover to allow steam to escape.
  7. Return cauliflower mixture to saucepan; heat over medium heat until hot, stirring occasionally. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in mustard and cheese until melted and smooth.
  8. Serve soup topped with a little cheese for garnish.

We like to serve with some bacon bits, and cheese and for a little crunch some fried onion rings (in the can)
