Cauliflower Pork Soup

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


6-8 servings (2 quarts)

This recipe was given to me by a friend several years ago. Everyone enjoys it, even my husband, who typically doesn't care for cauliflower.


  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 small head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups whole milk, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Chopped chives, optional


  1. In a large skillet, cook pork until no longer pink; drain and set aside.
  2. In a large kettle or Dutch oven, cook cauliflower in water until tender, 10 minutes. Do not drain. Add pork, onion and 1-1/4 cups milk to cauliflower.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour and remaining milk until smooth; stir into cauliflower mixture. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; add cheese, salt and pepper, stirring until cheese melts. If desired, sprinkle with chives.
