Cauliflower Soup Recipe (Creme du Barry)

Updated: Sep 30, 2020

This recipe is simple, nutritious, and a favorite dinner party option.

Cauliflower contains Vitamin C, Calcium, and Potassium. It also contains fiber and antioxidants.


1 Cauliflower (cut into small florets)

3-4 leeks (use only the white part and cut into small pieces)

1 tablespoon of butter (optional)

2 cups of vegetable or chicken broth

Salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, melt the butter and add the leek and a pinch of salt until the leek pieces are transparent. Add cauliflower florets, until it cooks and gets a bit of color from the butter. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add vegetable or chicken broth until the vegetables are completely submerged. Once the cauliflower is fully cooked, blend all vegetables in a blender or Vitamix. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper if needed.

This recipe is near and dear to my heart because I learned the classic version of it while studying at Le Cordon Bleu un Paris. The original version of this soup contain a bechamel sauce and cream, and although that is classic French cuisine at its best, I’ve adapted the recipe as a healthier version. Check out my blog entry on Crème Dubarry:
