This Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup is positively delicious and so easy to make. Get ready for creamy cauliflower soup like you’ve never had it before!
Hello stranger! Miss me!?
I’m mostly settled in the new house and gearing up for Fall by stocking our freezer with all kinds of deliciously sketch-free “fast foods” for a chilly day. I kicked off project FREEZE ALL THE THINGS!!! with a giant pot of my go-to tortilla soup and a second crock-pot filled with my new favorite food group, Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup!
While it may not technically be it’s own food group, it should be! It’s easily one of the most delicious days to get your daily allotment of the most important food group there ever was, VEGGIES! Oh come on, you totally saw that coming.
Much like the chickpea, my wild and crazy toddler who has recently been trading her afternoon nap for an epic dance party, this soup practically danced its way into my face. Cauliflower! Sweet Potatoes! Onion! I had a surplus of all three since I had sent Paul to the grocery store the day prior. Usually I do the grocery shopping [I’m one of those weirdos who LOVES grocery shopping!] but since I was on a roll with unpacking, I asked Paul to help stock the pantry and “buy whatever.” I half-expected to be greeted with a zillion bags of jalapeño potato chips and a few boxes of cookies for good measure. He once came home with 5 pounds of peanut M+Ms because he didn’t know he needed it until he saw it.
I didn’t hate it.
To my delight, my knight in shining armor [or stud in a dirty flight suit] brought home four bags of fresh produce. Holy veggies, Batman! My hero! Though the real hero of this story is Katie for inspiring this recipe. Totally check out her blog when you have a chance, she’s beyond awesome!
Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup
This soup is so faceplantingly delicious, I can’t get enough! It was great the first day and even better the next! And the next! I tucked the remainder of the soup into the freezer for a rainy day, but already want to dive in after it.
Needless to say, I’ll be making more super soon.
Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup
- 2 lbs fresh cauliflower (roughly chopped)
- 2 lbs sweet potato (peeled and cubed)
- 1 quart vegetable broth
- 1 large onion (roughly chopped)
- 5 cloves garlic
- 4 stalks of green onion (chopped)
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2-1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
- 2 cups milk
- 2 oz cream cheese
TASTY TOPPING OPTIONS:
- crumbled bacon
- chopped green onions
- freshly grated or shredded cheese
- homemade croutons or garlic bread
- crushed red pepper flakes for a kick
- hot sauce for even more kick!
- salt and pepper to taste
- Set your 5 or 6 quart slow cooker to high and add cauliflower, sweet potato, veggie broth, onion, garlic, green onion, thyme, paprika, red pepper flakes, and salt.
- NOTE: If the broth you're using is on the saltier side, feel free to skip the salt and simply add it in later, to taste. Same goes for the red pepper flakes - if you want a super mild soup you can always sneak some in later. I added a teaspoon of RPF to mine and it gave the soup a delightful little zing.
- Cover and cook for 4-5 hours on high.
- Once the veggies are fabulously tender, turn off the crock-pot and add your milk and cream cheese. Blend using an immersion blender [my favorite space-saving appliance ever!] and you're good to go!
- Ladle soup into bowls and enjoy right away with a mountain of your favorite toppings, then store the remaining soup in your fridge or freezer. As written, the recipe will yield around 4 quarts of soup which equates to 16 eight-ounce cups or 8 hearty bowls. It tastes great the first day and even better the next!
- This soup will keep for 4-5 days in the refrigerator and freeze marvelously for 2-3 months! Simply store the soup sans-toppings and add all your goodies upon reheating. Easy peasy!
special diets and swaps
- t-rex chefs: feel free to use chicken broth if you prefer and go nuts with the bacon – SWOON!
- brontosaurus chefs: skip the bacon topping entirely or grab some veggie-friendly bacon bits or tempeh bacon for a delish smoky crumble on top!
I’ve had this soup every which way and think it’s absolutely marvelous however you top it! Paul likes the bacon/cheddar/chive combo best and I’m a sucker for a simple sprinkling of cheese and chopped green onion. You can even spice things up a bit by topping the soup with red pepper flakes or a drizzle of your favorite hot sauce; have fun with it!
I hope your family loves this Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup as much as mine does! Enjoy!
Have a little extra time on your hands? (I’m jealous; come wash my dishes!) Feel free to amp up the flavors of this soup even further by oven roasting your veggies first. Simply give them a rough chop and drizzle with olive oil or butter and pop them on a lipped baking pan for 30 minutes or so at 400 degrees F. Set a timer and walk away. Preferably in the direction of my sink.
I wasn’t kidding about those dishes!
In all seriousness, you need this soup. This soup needs you. The universe is basically demanding that you both be together. Give in… and enjoy!
I made this last night using my instant pot, under pressure for 12 minutes with 5 minutes release. It turned out great. I loved the silky mouth feel once blended. I did add a shake of seasoning salt.
I’m going to make the soup in the next week I will let you know if I loved it I should
Love this soup! My husband is not a fan (he doesn’t appreciate sweet potatoes the way I do), so this is my go-to meal when he’s out of town. Makes plenty so I don’t have to cook for a few days. I like to top it with some combination of shredded cheese, croutons, or diced avocado, and extra red pepper flakes.
So easy and so good! I’m not the cook in our family but I pulled this off! Once it thickened up overnight and the flavor seeped through it was even more delicious. We put a few bacon crumbles on top with a pinch of grated Gouda cheese. I’m making it again for my friends right
Now. Highly recommend if you’re looking for flavor and low cal.
If I let this sit when I go to work, can you do a oow setting instead? And for how long?
Hi Dawn! I haven’t tested it on low personally (I usually make it on high or whip up my pressure cooker version) but typical guidelines for slow cooker soups is 4 hours on high or approx. 6-8 on low to cook. Let me know if you get a chance to experiment xoxo
This definitely needs the toppings for any sort of balance of flavors, otherwise it’s heavily cauliflower tasting and not much else. Glad I stocked up on topping choices, otherwise I’m afraid this would have been a waste of food as I’m not sure I’d eat this on it’s own. Sorry!
Was going to have this tonight for dinner. I followed the recipe to a T, it tasted horrible. Also smelled horrible while I was cooking, probably the thyme. Had to dump the whole pot. What a waste.
I made this today and I loved it!! I added a couple of carrots and celery to the mix. And I didn’t have dried thyme so I opted for dried oregano instead. It had all the savory flavors of a hearty potato soup. I’ll definitely make it again. Yum!
Delicious! Substituted almond milk for the milk, added 1 can drained navy beans for added protein, and used water instead of vegie broth since I didn’t have it on hand. The soup is wonderful and so nutritious.
Do you think you could use something to substitute for the cream cheese? Maybe plain greek yogurt?
Hi Elizabeth! Plain Greek yogurt will curdle once it is mixed into the hot soup so I would just leave the cream cheese out or use a non-dairy swap like almond milk or coconut milk. You can add the greek yogurt on top as part of your garnish/topping and it will be super yummy that way!
I made this today and was very disappointed… It was horrible! We will not be making it again. such a waste of food!
I’ve made this soup before and absolutely love it. I was wondering if, when doubling the recipe, do all ingredients double the same across the board?
So glad you love it Anne-Marie, thank you! Will your slow cooker big large enough to handle a full double batch? That would be my only concern because for soup recipes is a straight double of all the ingredients! xoxo
Will a mixer work if I don’t have an imersion blender?
Hi Barbara! Yes absolutely! It will take a few batches to puree the soup. I’ve totally done this for soups a few times recently! The main thing to keep in mind is that hot soup loves to try and expand and splatter in the blender so don’t fill it up all the way and you can even let the soup cool a bit with the lid off first before spooning into the blender for pureeing. xoxo
I need this and it was delicious! I modified slightly by only using one cup of almond milk and 4 oz instead of 2 oz of cream cheese.
Is the nutritional information i based on a 1 cup serving or the 2 cup “hearty” serving?
So glad you enjoyed it, Linda! The nutrition is calculated per cup to make things easy. Simply double values for a 2-cup bowl and you’re good to go!
Roasted the cauliflower and sweet potato beforehand and cooked on the stovetop. My daughter 8 complained about the cauliflower smell but loved the soup when she tasted it! I added a couple of leftover breakfast sausages to the pot. We are vegging out with a movie on the couch so crumbled potato chips on top! Wonder what a chopped apple would do for the flavours? Thank you for the recipe!
Thanks Deb! Loved the addition of breakfast sausage and I think apple would be fun to play around with – maybe as a topping along with white cheddar and some bacon to balance out the sweet? LOL about the cauliflower – veggies like broccoli and cauliflower aren’t the best smelling while they cook but MAN are they delicious! Glad y’all are enjoying the soup!
Tried this recipe a few months ago…OMG. It is hands down on my top 3 favorite soups list. SO good and so easy to make! I have to use a regular blender because I don’t have the immersion one but it comes out just fine! Highly recommend!
Day = MADE! I’m so honored you’re loving the recipe, Kelsey! xoxo
Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I’ve had it saved on FB to try for a while. Just broke down yesterday and made it. I did roast the cauliflower, garlic and onion prior to throwing it in the Crock-Pot. I also had to strain everything and mix in my food processor as I don’t have a stick mixer (?) that was an experience. But, when I bowled it up, my hubby was very mad he choose a sandwich over this delicious soup! I usually stick with loaded potato soup or something meaty (chicken stew, beef stew, etc).
I loved this! And have told my hubby he has to buy an immersion blender for next time I make this.
I made this the other night and we both thought it was delicious. I checked my vegetables at the 4.5 hour mark and they were done. I resisted the urge to use bacon as we are trying to stay vegetarian as much as possible.
Great recipe, than you!
So glad it was a hit – thanks Kelly! xo
Made this today & I love it. I had to adjust the taste w some more of the seasonings. But it was great. I just added the crumbled bacon (Applegate-turkey bacon) to the soup. And then sharp sheddar & more green onions as toppings. Mmmm!! Yum!! We’re in the heat of Wisconsin summer now, but this will be even more welcome this fall & winter!
Made this today. It was so easy. Decided to add a few stragglers from the vegetable bin. Carrots x4. At the end used almond milk and 4oz cream cheese (as mine didn’t seem very thick). Then just before serving added cup of sharp cheddar cheese. Topped with apple bacon and green onions. It was a hit with my husband along with Olive Ciabata.
Sounds amazing Sandra, thank you!
I made this on 2/7/18 to have on 2/8/18 (soups and stews are almost always better the next day). I followed the recipe exactly but used frozen cauliflower rice instead of fresh. This soup was delicious! It was thick and rich and had levels of flavor. I also roasted broccoli, Brussel sprouts and carrots and added them after the milk/cream cheese and when the cooking was done. I served it with shredded smoked cheddar cheese and bacon bits. My new favorite!
Tina I’m in love with the extra veggies you added – such a tasty mix-in for the soup! Thank you!
Could I use a bag (or two!) of frozen cauliflower for this? I have a couple in my freezer and this recipe sounds delicious!
It’ll totally work with frozen! You’ll use about 4 cups of cauliflower florets 🙂
this soup is amazing!! it has definitely earned a spot in our regular rotation. I just made it for the super bowl festivities and my husband and all his meat-eating friends love it. I love cauliflower and sweet potatoes so much but I’d never thought to combine them! I chose to make it vegan as well. I used almond milk in place of dairy milk and for the cream cheese I substituted cashew cream (just cashews and a little water in a high speed blender). I also switched out half of the paprika for smoked paprika and left the skins on the potatoes for all those extra nutrients. I just can’t get enough of this flavor. so good!! perfect for “souper” bowl sunday!
I agree with Alex’s comment, copied below. I didn’t do anything wrong, followed the recipe. I love cauliflower and sweet potatoes but this was awful. Had to open the doors and windows to get the stink out of the house. We chose not to eat it.
“Maybe I did something wrong or just have really different tastes from the positive reviewers here but I really didn’t like this. I actually cooked it and then opted not to eat it for dinner.. that’s how much I disliked it. The flavours were all off and it really made my apartment stink”
Cruciferous veggies tend to be suuuuuper fragrant when slow cooked. It’s just one of those veggies that may be mild smelling roasted/raw/sauteed but amplified once it spends some quality time in the crock-pot, so I totally understand. I do adore love the soup and always feel a little bummed if someone feels quite the opposite but I totally respect that! xo
We are typically soup lovers but found this soup bland and not of a particularly appealing consistency.
Just read through the comments to see if anyone tried it dairy free. Bringing a dish to a potluck & want to feed as many as possible. I can see coconut milk working well, but I do not do well with soy, so need to skip soy-cheese subs. Do you think it will really work without the cream cheese, please? Thanks!
Hi Karen! 🙂 I’ve had a few people tell me they’ve made it dairy-free over the years and they’ve used coconut milk and just skipped the cream cheese entirely (you can add a little extra coconut milk to taste at the end if you think it needs more richness) – I’ve also made it with almond milk and liked it as well!
Could you possibly use anything in place of cauliflower? i.e. more sweet potato or another veggie or starch? i dont have any and am trying to make this!
Hi Daisy! Carrots work marvelously in place of the cauliflower and you could also try more sweet potato if you’d like! Depending on how much you add as your swap, adjust any seasoning and toppings to taste as needed and you’re good to go!
Flavor-wise it will be an entirely different soup so for sure let me know how it goes! I have a Roasted Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup that I adore so I’d for sure try carrots here if you have them! 🙂
This soup is so good. It sounded strange when I read ingredients but it is really good and hearty! Thank you!
lol Carol! I’m so glad you gave it a try and that you enjoyed a hearty bowl of this soup! 🙂
This sweet potatoe/cauliflower soup looks scrumptious, however with diabetics in my home, I need nutritional values. Any idea where I can get them?
Totally understandable Arlene, happy to help! If you divide the recipe into 4 servings, each bowl has 370 calories + 73 carbohydrates (mainly from the cauliflower/potatoes/milk) + 20 grams of protein + 8 grams of fat. This is before toppings, since everyone likes to add different ones to their soup 🙂
Maybe I did something wrong or just have really different tastes from the positive reviewers here but I really didn’t like this. I actually cooked it and then opted not to eat it for dinner.. that’s how much I disliked it. The flavours were all off and it really made my apartment stink!
No worries Alex, we all have different tastes, I totally get it! The cauliflower can be very prominent here and cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, etc..) have quite a distinct smell while cooking. I’m bummed it didn’t make the cut but thank you for keeping me posted! 🙂
This Slow cooker Sweet potato and Cauliflower Soup sounds marvelous!
I also want to tell you that you are not weird to like grocery shopping because I do too! I like to look at all the food and the flowers and sometimes the people (sometimes not too, because I also like to be alone with my thoughts ). If I don’t make a list, I can get ideas from the box mixes on how to make it homemade. You’re not weird at all. 🙂
Do you think I could you use leftover broth from cooking chickpeas as my vegetable broth?
Hey Charlotte! The main issue with the chickpea broth is that it might not have much flavor to offer your soup. You could boil it with veggie scraps, a few whole veggies, garlic and your favorite herbs/spices to season it and if you’re digging the taste it’ll be a great compliment to the soup! I often make my own veggie broth so it’s totally do-able! It can be made stove-top, in the slow cooker, or even in a pressure cooker! <3
Ohhh MYYY God!!!!! Just made this tonight and it was incredible!!!! I love cauliflower soup anyway but the sweetness of the sweet potatoes coupled with the spiciness of the red pepper flakes put it over the top!!! I added some crumbled bacon and cheesy garlic crotons and thought I’d died and gone to Heaven!! Definitely a keeper soup recipe!!!
I’m totally happy dancing over here Dea, thank you!!! So thrilled you loved the soup! 🙂
This was a lovely soup. Didn’t have a definite vegetable flavour even though I thought the cauliflower would come through stronger. Whole family enjoyed it. Another wonderful soup to add to our favourites. Thanks for a nice recipe.
Made this for dinner tonight and while I thought it was going to be really good, but no one in my family cared for it. Followed the recipe except for the thyme. Something just tasted off, I don’t know what it was maybe the paprika. Tasted too sweet with a weird cauliflower aftertaste. Worth a shot, but won’t make again.
So sorry to hear that Marie! Sweet potato based soups (especially veggie-heavy ones) for sure have a light sweetness to them. I once made one with apples and it was total overkill – I couldn’t handle the sweet apple with the sweet spud, lol. I hope you’ll give another recipe a shot sometime, hugs!
It’s in the slow cooker! Can’t wait to have the 1st bite! Better be good my mother in law is coming for supper!!
LOL Hope y’all adore it Sue! It’s been a hit with family and friends so far! <3
Made this tonight and we are fans! Man! Super yummy, filling and pretty healthy too (used low sodium broth and low fat dairy). Thanks!
So thrilled you enjoyed it Mary! 🙂 Thanks for the sweet review!
I decided to make this soup today, but I accidentally added the milk and cream cheese with all the other ingredients in the beginning. Do you think it will come out ok?
Hey Jerrie! The cheese and/or milk may curdle (high/long heat tends to do that to dairy products) which will look a little odd and not be a bit less creamy as a result. I’ve curdled soup before in the trial and error process of making things like broccoli and cheese soup and still devoured the results! My vote would be to taste it and then tweak with any extras you may need, like a some extra milk or cheese at the end or mix-ins of your choice. xoxo
Thinking of making this soup. Sounds delicious. The receipe calls for 4 stalks of green onion is that suppose to be celery?
Hi Maryann! I have an obsession with all things green onion in my recipes, it’s just so delightful! They’re often called scallions as well. They’re onion-y in flavor but on the milder side which I love!
I tossed everything into the slow cooker..used around 1.5 pounds of each and that fit just fine in my 3.5 liter crock pot and imagine I could have totally used he full 2 pounds without any issues. I pureed it with the milk and cream cheese and served it with crumbled up bacon and shredded cheese.
We absolutely loved it! Thank you so much for an affordable healthy recipe and that will be made often during the cold winter months that are upon us..Oh! I used smoked paprika instead of plain and it was really good!
Thank you again!!!
So happy to hear it Sonya, thank you! I’m thrilled you enjoyed the soup and smoked paprika sounds like an amazing addition! 🙂
So excited to try this! Making it right now!!
Quick question. When adding all the ingredients to get it started, should the broth cover everything? Wondering if I may have put too much cauliflower in because it is above broth?
Hey Hillary! My broth didn’t cover the veggies either, no worries! The veggies shrink down and mingle with the broth as they cook – plus you always have the option of adding more broth at the end to make it soupier if desired, so you’re good to go! xoxo
I’m about to make this a second time, because it is SO delicious! I mean, seriously, this is really great soup. It’s all stormy and rainy here today, and the weather brought this soup to mind – perfect comfort food (and those veggies!).
Lynette you just made my day! Thank you! I’m so glad you’re loving this soup; it’s a favorite here as well and with rain and gloom heading this way, I might have to join ya with a giant bowl ❤️
I just made this & is delicious!!! I like the little bit of kick to it too!!
So stoked you loved it, Jenny! 🙂
I made this last night and while it is delish I would use chicken broth next time for a richer flavor.
With the bacon on top and a nice crusty piece of bread you have a great quick meal. Thanks for the recipe…I love it
I’m so trilled you love it Peggy! The chicken broth is a great addition, too! I try to make my own with leftover veggies and bones when we roast chicken and it’s so good together 🙂
So I was wondering if it would be ok of I cooked this on low for about 8 -9 hours without being able to stir it??? Looking to make this while im at work and cone home to it done.
It’s totally worth a try! I haven’t tested it that long but I think it would for sure work. I would refrain from adding the milk or cheese until just before serving. When you get home just add them (should only take a second) then blend using an immersion blender, blender, or food processor and serve. That last step is crucial for preventing the dairy from curdling and to make the soup extra smooth and creamy! xoxo
How did this go?
I don’t own a slow cooker. Sounds like I could just cook this in a large pot on the stove until the veggies are tender? Do you think it will make much difference?
You absolutely can, Megan! Maybe halve the recipe so it fits in a standard pot? I don’t think I own a pot as big as this recipe yields 🙂 I wish I did!
I really wanted this soup to be delicious. It was easy and fun to make.. but.. It didn’t taste good. I followed the directions carefully and it was just to much Califlour taste. I like Califlour, but this combo just didn’t jive with my taste buds.. My husband and I forced ourselves to eat at least one bowl.. but we won’t make this again.
I’m so sorry to hear that Dee Dee. It’s been a huge hit with family, friends, and readers but I know that not every recipe will suit everyone’s tastes. It still bums me out that it didn’t make the cut for y’all but I hope the next recipe you try rocks your world! Hope you’re having a great week!
Another winner! I have a confession: I set you up to fail. I am totally not a cauliflower fan as evidenced by the fact we are in year 2 of the Veggie of the Year: Cauliflower. I’m trying and eating and trying . . still not loving it. So I had very low expectations for this soup. But I liked it the first night and LOVED it the second! We topped it with shredded cheddar and scallions first then cheddar and pepitas the next time because we wanted something crunchy. Amazing stuff! Thank you again for yet another great recipe!
LOL I’m glad it won you over in the cauliflower department! So so happy to hear y’all loved it – thanks for popping back in with an update, it always makes my day! 🙂
This looks absolutely ah-maze-ING!! Can’t wait to try it! 🙂
Yay! Thanks Victoria! Let me know when you try it — it’s a total favorite around here 🙂 xoxo
I made this for my parents and they loved it! Both of them HATE cauliflower and sweet potatoes and they got seconds! Thank you so much for helping me make something healthy and delicious for them!
Thank you Rachel!!! I’m beyond thrilled that they loved the soup — hooray for embracing new veggies and loving it! 🙂 You’re such a good daughter!
Divine! I used butternut squash, instead of sweet potatoes………..OH MY WORD! My 4 and 5 year old’s lapped it up–and I had three bowls!
Yayyyy!!!! So excited to hear it Cherie! Thanks so much for the sweet comment! <3
This was absolutely DELISH!! I am not an advanced cook, whatsoever… And even I couldn’t mess this up! Yummy. Definitely freezing to eat the leftovers at a later date 😀
Would you please post the nutritional value of the recipes? I would like to make the cauliflower and sweet potato soup, but need the values for my husband and myself. Thank you.
Hi Marilee! I hope you get a chance to make it! 🙂 You can track nutrition values at https://www.myfitnesspal.com <-- my friends rave about their free tools and say they're pretty accurate! Hope that helps! <3
Quick question… do the garlic cloves go in whole (and then they get chopped up by the blender) or did you dice them first?
Hey Melissa! Toss ’em in whole! The blender has your back 🙂
This looks delicious, and a great way to incorporate some good veggies! Printed and I’ll be making this weekend!
Thanks Cristina! I hope it’s a hit!
I made this Sunday afternoon and it was good. Today and yesterday though? It has been amazing! Thanks for the recipe and I’ll be making this often this Fall/Winter 🙂
Aw yay!! Thanks Lauren! I felt the same way! I thoroughly enjoyed the first bowl but the next few were so phenomenal it made me obsessed with the soup! *virtual clinking of soup bowls*
I have a 4.5 quart slow cooker. Will it still do or should I cut the recipe in half or 3/4…?
Just replied above, sorry for the delay! I was on an impromptu family road trip but I’m back now! xoxo
This looks so good. I really want to make it but I dont have an immersion blender? Any other options?
Thanks Julie! Absolutely! Do you have a blender or food processor? You can blend the soup in batches using either one. Just be sure not to fill either up to the top since hot liquid expands a bit and could knock the top off your blender. That’s how I blended all my soups before I got an immersion bender [best Christmas gift ever! I’m obsessed!] and it works just as well at making your soup oh-so-creamy and smooth!
Well it sounds marvelous and will put cauliflower on list in a.m….I have one question tho…to make it lower carb–im not against dairy and don’t seem to have an issue with it (on paleo) and was curious if anyone has made this with canned coconut milk–and if so would you skim the cream off the can after refrigerating first? Just wondering if anyone has experience with that substitution..thanks!! luv your site!!
Thanks Jo! I tried it with almond milk! Christie from 3 Whole Peas in Our Gluten Free Pod made hers with soy milk and a few tweaks and it came out great too — I think you could try any type of coconut milk you love! Adding the full can with the cream would make the soup super luscious and if you like the taste of coconut you should be good to go! <3 Hope that helps! Ooh --- and it's marvelous with a little drizzle of Sriracha too!
Just finished my first batch of your recipe and its just DELICIOUS!!!!!!!! As a professional chef I rarely crock pot but I thought this one looked light a winner and its been a hectic week. Kudos again 🙂
Thank you Dana!!! Your comment means so much to me – I’m stoked that you loved it! Cheers to a crazy week [mine has been bonkers so far!] and hoping we have a lazy weekend ahead of us! 😉
I made this tonight – so good. but I can’t say I followed the recipe. after I added the cauliflower to the slow cooker it became abundantly clear that my cooker was smaller that what the recipe called for. So I winged it. About equal portions of sweet potato and cauliflower, enough of white onion, 3 green onions, 3 cloves of garlic. Still about a quart of broth. then all the milk and cream cheese. By the time 5 hours had passed, I had forgotten I didn’t make the full recipe! 🙂 I really like it with uncured turkey bacon, green onion and cheddar as toppings. My husband liked it too.
Thanks Jenn. I love your recipes.
Ahhh thank you! I’m so glad you loved it! And that it’s proven versatile when adding ingredients on the fly — so many of my recipes come to be b/c I have ingredients to use up and just wing it! <3 Thanks so much for coming back to say hello! <3 I can't wait to hear about what else you try!
Cauliflower is my here. In fact, I’ve been known to call it the Super Man of the Veggie World before.
Made it. Loved it. Thank you!
So glad you loved it Candice!!! Thank you! Hope you go as crazy over the leftovers as I did – dare I say they were even better than the first bowl? 😉 xo
This looks DE-licious! I love cauliflower soup, so I can’t wait for a cool day to try this soup!
Thanks Kalee! Sending Fall vibes your way! It’s been so stormy here that I keep souping it up!
Oh man…. this looks DELICIOUS! Absolutely perfect for the first slow cooker recipe of the year!
Aw thanks Trish! Break out that slow cooker!
Think I can use a 4.5 quart slow cooker? Or should I adjust the recipe…
There’s absolutely a chance it will fit but will depend on how much sweet potato and cauliflower you’re working with [every time I buy them the size varies a bit] As long as the raw veg and broth all fit you’re good to go, but even if you have to save a few chunks of cauli and sweet potato from the pot you can roast them up for a different dish and simply truck along with the soup! Hope that helps!
OMG this looks absolutely incredible, so thick and creamy! Especially with all that cheese 😀 And the fact that it’s made in a slow cooker is a major bonus!
Thanks beautiful! <3
OH!!! I’m gonna save this one for a cold meatless Monday, yum! Hope you’re settling into the new home ok! 🙂
We’re getting there! Next up is the office! And painting… messy messy painting! 😉 Thanks Debbie!
This soup looks amazing! Unfortunately recently discovered that I’m lactose intolerant–thoughts on making this diary free?
I’m lactose intolerant too! I can usually handle full fat dairy products for some reason but not the lowfat stuff [something abut fat helping to bind the lactose? I forget the details!] buuuuut, you can absolutely use your favorite lactose-free or dairy free milk and skip the cream cheese. For the cheddar topping, Cabot cheddar cheeses are gloriously lactose free, naturally! <3 Hope that helps Emily! 🙂
I made it using coconut milk and one oz toffutti better than cream cheese (completely dairy free) and it was amazing!
Yay! Thanks Liz! I’m so happy to hear it worked with dairy free swaps! So funny I was just looking at dairy-free cream cheese at the store today – I’ve got to try it!
Yay! I was so excited about this recipe til I saw the milk in it. So glad to know coconut milk will work! Gonna try it very soon.
Absolutely use coconut milk! I typically prefer almond milk and coconut milk to moo cow 🙂 Hope you love the soup!
Use lactose free milk
Yummy soup. I have to make it, I wonder what my children will say:) Pinning!
I hope they adore it!! My picky husband licked his bowl clean 😉
I am so pinning this – I had no idea you could freeze a cream soup. Thanks!
