This cauliflower pear soup is so rich and delicious, plus it uses only 5 main ingredients! It’s the perfect soup for a cozy fall night.
I love fall.
Mostly because it means its my birthday (hooray)- but also because after living through another humid, sticky, I need to shower 6 times a day Florida summer, its nice to finally get that break and enjoy the weather outside.
Fall to me means leggings, cozy socks and a nice hot soup simmering on the stove.
So what if its only 70 degrees outside, I can pretend to be super cold sitting on my couch with all of those things I mentioned above.
And soup. This cauliflower pear soup to be exact.
It’s full of my favorites veggie- cauliflower. I can seriously eat it roasted, mashed, riced, or pureed any day!
Thick, creamy, and with a hint of sweetness from sautéed onions and pears, this soup is quickly becoming my new go to.
Best part about this is you just add some chicken stock, season with salt and let the pot do the work.
Blend it all together and you’re done!
You can even make this creamier by adding in a can of coconut cream, but I tend to just leave it as is.
This cauliflower pear soup is so super easy to make, you’ll be back on that couch in no time!
