Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 3 cups cauliflower florets
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 10 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 3 + 1 tablespoons EVOO, divided
  • 4 shallots, finely diced
  • 2 cups white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Almond Breeze Original
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: EVOO, cheese, bacon bits


  1. First, preheat oven to 400ºF. Then, place cauliflower, broccoli, and garlic on a baking sheet. Drizzle on about 3 tablespoons of EVOO and season with salt and pepper. Toss so that everything is evenly coated.
  2. Roast veggies at 400ºF for about 20 minutes, or until the broccoli begins to brown.
  3. While the veggies are roasting, sauté shallots in 1 tablespoon of EVOO. Once they are translucent, add in veggie broth and Almond Breeze and let simmer for a few minutes. Then, stir in cheese and continue to simmer for 5 more minutes.
  4. Place everything in a high-power blender and whirl for about a minute, pureeing the vegetables and turning everything into a creamy soup. If you like your soup a little thinner, add more vegetable broth!
