Creamy Cauliflower & Potato Soup | Kitchen Confidante

It’s been a long, cold winter. Even by Northern California standards, temperatures have been more raw than usual. Mornings greet us with frosted lawns and low hanging fog, and each morning I urge my children to bundle up in warm jackets. To them, the idea of wearing more than a thick sweatshirt is starting to make sense, finally. It only took three months for them to figure that out.

The urge to warm up with a bowl of soup started in early November and hasn’t stopped; I made a big batch of soup for lunch today, in fact. I find myself making soup so often that it takes a gentle reminder from my husband that we’ve been slurping a lot of soup and that chewable food might be a nice change of pace.

While my spring fever gains momentum, my desire for comfort in a bowl continues, and I am excited to share this Creamy Cauliflower & Potato Soup with you. I first made it when temperatures began to dip in November, and it is has proven to be a cozy way to warm up from the chill, time and again. Thick with a puree of cauliflower and potato, it is rich in flavor from pancetta, leeks and a savory clam stock. It is featured today on My Way Home by Wayfair, and I hope it keeps you warm as we head from the biting cold of winter into the nip of early spring.

    Such a gorgeous and velvety soup Liren! I love making soups in winter. In fact I can’t wait for the weather to start to cool down here so I can make some soup.

    And that first image of your soup is just stunning! I love the beautiful light.

      You and Laura are so right about roasting the cauliflower! Next time when I’m not in a rush, I will take the time to do it!

      I will confess, while I know that roasting cauliflower will make it even more flavorful, I can be lazy and in a rush! So I skip it! I’m certain it would be even better!

    Yeah, NorCal has been strangely cold (ok, cool) for a strangely long time, it seems. Or maybe it’s just that our houses lack insulation and double-paned windows… :) We are definitely making a lot of soups like this at our house too! Potato and cauliflower is a perfect combination–earthy and warming and delicious.

      You hit the nail on the head, Eileen! The houses are definitely lacking when it comes to insulations! At least my house is!

    This sounds delicious! Could you sub chicken or vegetable stock if you’re not a huge fan of clams? I just might have to make this tonight as we had heaps of snow in Denver yesterday.

      Katie! Hi! Yes, absolutely, use chicken or vegetable stock in place of the clam – I would probably do the chicken for just a little more flavor, but either will work. Hope it keeps you warm and cozy from the snow!

    I can’t think of a better soup to act as winter’s bookends. Beautiful. (I’m kind of on a cauliflower kick lately.) :)
