Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder Recipe-this healthy and hearty chowder is perfect for a cold day!

Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder Recipe

We have been getting lots of snow this winter, which is great for the drought, ski season, and soup days. I love warming up to a bowl of comforting soup on a cold day. Ok, on really cold and snowy days, I don’t leave the house, I stay inside where it is warm and toasty, but I still appreciate a bowl of hot soup.

We are currently loving this Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder. It is the perfect meal for winter!

Josh, unlike me, loves to get outside when there is a big snowstorm. He hits the ski slopes as often as possible. When he gets home, he is ready for warm, comfort food…and this chowder always hits the spot!

To make the chowder, we use roasted cauliflower instead of potatoes. Roasting the cauliflower adds a ton of flavor and keeps the chowder a little lighter.

We also use Almond Breeze Almondmilk Unsweetened Original to make the chowder super creamy. No cream is needed for this chowder, but you will never know it!

I do add a little shredded cheese because it is comfort food:)

We like to serve the cauliflower chowder with crusty bread or crackers. Mmmm! I am ready for a bowl right now! Are you with me? I bet you will even want seconds!

Stay warm this winter with Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder! It is sure to keep you warm and cozy!

    I have been looking for vegetarian meals to make for my daughter and came across this. I made a big batch, I gave it to my daughter, and froze the rest. I didn’t have any because I’m not a chowder fan or cauliflower really, she liked it! at least that’s what she told me. Well tonight I got some out of the freezer and tried it and wow, it is delicious, I am so glad i tried it. Thank you so much.

    Cooked exactly as was written. Veggies didn’t cook and this is bland and not a chowder. Too much liquid. Its a soup. Disappointed.

  4. I made this soup last night. I didn’t have cauliflower so I roasted butternut squash and followed the recipe. It was delicious Thanks for a yummy recipe.

    1. So you didn’t make Cauliflower Chowder, you made Butternut Squash Chowder. Try making the recipe exactly with cauliflower. It is pretty darn yummy.

      You didn’t follow the recipe. You made Butternut Squash Chowder. Try cauliflower next time. It is pretty darn delicious on a chilly rainy day.

    Excellent soup!! The flavors are fantastic! Roasted broccoli is the star of the show here. I used organic chicken stock and skipped the cheese, and it was absolutely delicious. Will make it again and again!
