This Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup is really filling and super warming, which makes it the perfect choice for when the weather starts to get cooler and the nights get longer.
We love our Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup when served with a sprinkle of Stilton or Danish Blue cheese. We think that the salty flavour of the cheese really stands out against the smooth, fresh taste of the broccoli and cauliflower and adds an extra depth to the soup. You don’t have to use cheese of course, it’s entirely optional!
This Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup is ready in no time at all and is just as good when reheated for lunch the following day and served with some warm, crusty bread – delish.
