Zupas Copy Cat Gluten-Free Cauliflower Soup

Zupas Copy-Cat Gluten-Free Cauliflower Soup

I made this a few weeks ago and have been asked for the recipe several times. My family really liked it so I hope yours does too!


  • 3 tbsp grass-fed butter (for dairy-free use @miyokoscreamery)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup gluten-free flour
    ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup half and a half (Use dairy-free @silk half and a half)
  • 1 cup milk (Use coconut milk for dairy-free)
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can chicken broth
  • 2.5 lbs cauliflower
  • 1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1½ cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup pepper jack cheese, shredded (For dairy-free use @bragglivefoodproducts nutritional yeast)


  • Melt butter and chopped onion together in a large saucepan and sauté for approximately 10 minutes over medium heat until onion gets golden in color
  • Add flour and stir to make a roux. Heat while stirring for a couple of minutes
  • Slowly add half and half along with the milk. Gradually add and stir the entire time. Following the milk, gradually add water and chicken broth and stir constantly
  • Add chopped cauliflower and heat until boil
  • Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until cauliflower is tender. This will take approximately 15 minutes
  • Place contents of the saucepan into blender and blend until smooth. Remove center part of blender cover to allow steam to escape
  • Return cauliflower mixture to saucepan; heat over medium heat until hot, stirring occasionally. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in mustard and cheese until melted and smooth
  • Serve soup topped with a little cheese and bacon
