Sweet Cream Cauliflower Soup with Smoked Gruyere

Tiffany Bannworth


Don't let the warm, orange color fool you; this is definitely cream of cauliflower soup.

I like to leave the skin on my sweet potatoes because so many nutrients are lost when your peel them.

The smoked gruyere really adds a creamy depth to the soup, as well.

You may also want to top with toasted pine nuts to add a little texture, perhaps even some crispy bacon.

Either way you serve, you will lick the bowl clean.

How to Make Sweet Cream Cauliflower Soup with Smoked Gruyere


  1. Place all ingredients, save cream and gruyere, in a heavy bottom, lidded pot.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a low heat. Cook for 2-3 hours.
  3. Then puree in a food processor or blender in batches.
  4. Return to the pot and add the cream. Stir well, then allow to cook on low, uncovered for 30 more minutes. Stirring occasionally.
  5. Serve with freshly shredded smoked gruyere.

    I also served with poppy and sesame seed croissant, that I sprinkled the inside with garlic powder before rolling.
