Ingredients You'll Need:
- Cauliflower. Roasted until golden brown to give a deep delicious flavor and healthy nutrients to the soup.

- Garlic. Adds a ton of flavor that pairs beautifully with the cauliflower.
- Vegetable broth. To make the soup a perfectly smooth consistency. You can use chicken broth if you don't have any vegetable broth.
- Heavy cream. Makes the soup extra rich and creamy and leaves you feeling satisfied after enjoying a bowl full.
- Herbs and spices. Red pepper flakes, dried parsley, salt, and pepper.
- White cheddar. Adds delicious creaminess and savory cheese flavor to the soup. You could use Gouda or Yellow Cheddar instead, but this will alter the flavor and color of the soup.
