I have tried to develop this broccoli cauliflower cheese soup recipe a number of times, and every time it just wasn’t quite right. When this happens, I usually take a break and re-visit the recipe later. Last week I gave it another go, and focused on a simple recipe and it came together so easily! I am in love with this broccoli cauliflower cheese soup recipe!
I usually make soups like this for lunch, or for dinner when Andy is going to be out of town. He isn’t a huge vegetable fan so this broccoli cauliflower cheese soup is not his idea of a delicious meal. HA! But Abram and I loved it. We have been eating it all week long!
The reason I love this recipe is because even though it is purred, it still has a rough texture and you can taste the cauliflower and broccoli. I kept the cheese mix simple as well, monterey jack for that perfect melt with a little parm to give it a kick.
The “secret” ingredient is a pinch of nutmeg. Nutmeg has this magical quality when added to creamy dishes, it enhances all the flavors and makes everything taste even more decadent and delicious.
I feel like this soup has a great balance of cream to veggies to cheese, you can taste everything – all the flavors are there and nothing is too overpowering. It’s simply divine! And of course some nice crusty bread is mandatory! Check out this amazing round-up post of 40+ Insanely Delicious Yeast Bread Recipes to by Gather for Bread find the perfect match!
