Best Low Carb Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

When a cauliflower is sitting in your fridge and you aren't sure what to do with it, make a soup! This soup is so easy and delicious, you don't even feel like you're eating health foods. 


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • Optional - 1 tsp guar gum or other thickener


  1. Chop up the cauliflower and place in your slow cooker with the diced onions and chicken broth. 
  2. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours. 
  3. Use an immersion blender (or stand alone blender or food processor) to blend the cauliflower and onion into the soup. 
  4. Add in cheeses and stir until melted. 
  5. Stir in heavy cream and seasonings (and thickener if using).
  6. Let cook for 10-15 more minutes on high. 
  7. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! I'm Kaili, the founder of Happy Healthy Things. My husband and I started doing a modified keto/low carb diet in July of 2018, and we have found a lot of success with it as far as weight loss and feeling better in general. I know that every health journey is different and keto won't work for everyone, so I started this website for myself and others to share their experiences and inspire you! 

I am a professional writer and digital marketing specialist by day and blogger extraordinaire by night. I love spending time with my family and two cats and getting outdoors when the weather is nice. I also love my couch and Netflix, so finding a balance between work/home life and adding fitness into the mix has been my greatest challenge.
