Zupas Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup

I've never been to Zupas.  Even though I have a gift card that's been sitting in my wallet for about the last 6 or so months.....  If this Zupas Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup is any indication of the food there, I think I need to stop by.  Soon.  The soup was creamy and delicious. 

2 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups water
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) chicken broth
1 head (2 1/2 pounds) cauliflower, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup Pepper Jack cheese, shredded

In a large saucepan, melt margarine or butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until golden, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Whisk in flour and salt. Gradually stir in milk, chicken broth, and water.  Add cauliflower and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and cover.  Simmer until the cauliflower is tender - about 15 minutes.  In small batches, blend cauliflower in a blender until smooth (if you remove the center thing in the lid, it doesn't explode!  Well, if you are doing it in small batches.....  I still held it over the lid, but removed it to let the steam get out.)  Return soup to the pan and heat over medium heat until hot.  Remove from heat and add mustard and 1 1/2 cups cheese.  Stir until the cheese is melted.  Garnish with remaining cheese.

  1. I just found your site on so I thought I would stop by and take a peek. I just subscribed to your blog feed and can't wait to see what your next post will be!

    1. Welcome CJ! I'm so glad to have you here.

  2. Wow.....this soup look amazing! I could really go for some of it right now.

  3. Your recipes always make my mouth water. I love soup and could eat it anytime of the day and year. This is a must try! XOXO

  4. This sounds wonderful. I love Zupas! I found a trick online somewhere that if you remove the center thing in the lid but place a towel over the hole, that the steam comes out without burning you and without the soup exploding.

    1. Thanks for the tip - I'll have to try that next time. :)


Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment - I would love to hear from you.
