This cauliflower soup is so quick, easy and delicious. Dinner really couldn’t get any easier!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 whole Cauliflower (cut into florets, including stem)
  • 1 litre Chicken stock
  • 1 tsp Vegemite
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Parsley
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. In a large saucepan, simmer the cauliflower in the chicken stock until tender (5-10 mins).
  2. Add the vegemite and stir until dissolved.
  3. Using a heat-proof stick blender or a food processor/blender, puree the soup until smooth.
  4. Add pepper and chopped parsley, to taste.
  5. Serve with a generous sprinkling of shaved or grated parmesan cheese.


Cauliflower is available most of the year round, but this makes for a particularly nutritious winter-warming dinner. I have been garnishing this with some homemade pistachio dukkah recently, just for a change - yummo! Change the chicken stock for vegetable to make the dish vegetarian. For dairy-free, omit the parmesan cheese and replace with an equally delicious garnish (e.g. pesto, dukkah) or enjoy it plain and simple.

  • I love cauli so will be making this for sure. Thanks.


  • Yummy, looks fantastic and such an easy recipe. Thanks for sharing.


  • For a vegetarian version I use chicken stock. I don’t use vegemite but whole grain mustard and nutmeg. I also like to stir an egg through the soup just before serving.


  • Yummy a great one for now , a warm soup to for cold nights. Cauliflowers are plentiful at the moment.


  • I love this recipe. What a great way to use cauliflower.

    • I adore cauliflower and this soup is a favourite


  • I love cauliflower soup – it’s one of my favourites in winter. But I’ve never thought to add Vegemite – what a novel idea. :-) Thanks for sharing.


  • Wow, what a great idea.


  • I actually have never tasted a soup like this
    i must try your recipe!


  • Never had cauliflower soup but that will soon change when I make this. Yum! Love the addition of vegemite. Sounds great. Thanks for sharing!


  • I would never have thought of using vegemite – I normally use fish sauce to get the seriously saltiness with added depth. Looking forward to trying your suggestion.


  • Oh so easy – simple but delicious.


  • love easy and peasy – thanks for the recipe…. Cauli’s are $5 atm, so it can wait till they are on special!!


  • This sounds like something I might have to try, I’m very interested in the kick the Vegemite would give this recipe


  • Yum, Looks delicious, will be making some.


  • lol yeah vegemite does work as a flavouring! just don’t go over board lol
