Enjoy all the flavours of cauliflower cheese in this quick, creamy soup, topped off with a toasted slice of French bread with melted cheese.


Vegetable stock cube

2 cube(s), to make 1 litre

Cauliflower, Raw

1 whole, broken into florets

Spring Onions

8 medium, chopped

Philadelphia Light Soft Cheese

175 g

Parsley, fresh

2½ tablespoon(s), plus extra, to garnish

White French Stick

4 inch slice(s)

Half fat Cheddar cheese

40 g, grated

Black pepper

1 pinch


  1. Put the vegetable stock into a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the cauliflower and spring onions, then cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 15 mins until the cauliflower is tender.
  2. Transfer the soup to a blender and add the Philadelphia. Blend until smooth. Alternatively use a hand-held stick blender to blend the ingredients in the saucepan. Add the parsley, season with black pepper and reheat gently.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the grill. Toast the French bread on one side, then turn the pieces over and sprinkle the cheese on top. Grill until melted.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls and top each portion with a slice of the toasted French bread. Serve, sprinkled with a little extra black pepper and parsley.
