It’s that time of year.
So, we’re halfway through winter. The holidays are past, and the cold is beginning to wear on everybody’s nerves. (Unless you’re one of those super-happy-to-be-freezing-all-the-time people.) What does this time of year call for?
Soup. Lots of it.
In my family, we have soup for dinner just about every night. It’s souper (ha!) easy, my kids don’t have to ask me a million times what’s for dinner (yep. it’s soup. again.), and it gets us all comfy and warm before bed. Plus, with all the hearty broth and stock consumed with soups, it’s healing for our guts. Which is always good, since that generally means the rest of our bodies will be healthier too.Soupy favorites.
Since we eat so much soup, we definitely have a lot of favorites. Cauliflower soups are at the top of the list, but here are a few others my family really enjoys…
- White Chicken Chili in the Instant Pot or Slow Cooker
- Beef & Kale Soup in the Instant Pot
- Cheesy Bacon Lentil Stew
- Creamy Roasted Red Pepper, Sausage & Cauliflower Soup
- Quick & Easy Veggie Lentil Soup
Sage & Sausage Cauliflower Soup
As far as the sausage goes, you can use any kind you like. I’ve used organic breakfast sausage straight from a local farm, spicy Italian sausage from my mommy, whatever! You could even do chicken sausage if you don’t like pork. It’s all good in this soup.
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
Sage & Sausage Cauliflower Soup
Free from grain, gluten, eggs, dairy, and sugar.
- 1/2 onion
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, or ghee, if you can handle it
- 1 quart chicken stock (homemade or organic)
- water, to cover
- 1 head cauliflower
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried sage or 1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- Himalayan salt & black pepper, to taste
- 6 organic sausage (I like Applegate Farms, but you can use whatever, just make sure it’s sugar-free!)
- optional coconut milk, enough to make the soup your desired consistency – about 1-2 cups (I like to make my own)
Dice up onion and add it to a large stock pot, along with the oil/ghee. Sauté over medium heat until caramelized (about 10 minutes).
Meanwhile, chop washed cauliflower into small-ish chunks.
Add cauliflower to the onions when they’re done, then cover with stock, water, herbs, and spices.
Bring to a boil, then simmer until cauliflower is tender.
While cauliflower is cooking, fry up your sausage.
Add sausage and remaining ingredients to soup.
You can use leftover sausage for this recipe, too. Just add it in after the cauliflower is cooked.
Sausage and Cauliflower sounds great. I pinned this one. Yummy!
Thanks Amanda! It is yummy! 😉
Thank you for linking this to What'd You Do This Weekend, Raia. This looks awesome and hearty. Hope to see you next week with another delicious dish.

Hi Raia! I'm stopping in from Let's Get Real today. This soup certainly does look delicious and I love how easily it comes together. That is perfect for this Juggling Mom. Do you really eat soup every night? I wouldn't have thought to do that, but there is so much nutrition tht you can pack into soup and so many varieties. It makes perfect sense.
Hi, thanks for stopping by! Yes, we usually do eat soup for dinner every night – it's a great way to eat up veggies that need to be used, or even our leftovers from lunch! And yes, it's usually full of nutrition, especially when the base is a good broth or stock. Our dinner exception is Mondays, which is family pizza & a movie night. 😉
Yum! This looks delicious! I can't wait to try it!
Thanks Jen! I hope you like it! 🙂
I love this recipe! I can't wait to try it. Stopping by from the Simple Saturday Blog Hop : )
Thanks for stopping by Angela! I hope you enjoy the recipe! 🙂

Thanks Antionette! I agree with your grandmother! 😉

This looks great! We love meat-y and vegetable filled soups! I'm going to have to buy more cauliflower to make this!
Thanks Ashley! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
I hope you like it Yuliya! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I make a lot of soup in the winter too. Today for lunch, I made a Chicken Tortilla Soup with extra veggies. I like your Sausage and Cauliflower soup, I like the combination of flavors. I pinned it for later. I'm stopping by from the Let's Get Real Friday Link Party. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing this with us. I hope you'll join us this Friday.
Thanks for stopping by and pinning Nicky! I'll be sure to link up again. 😉
I have never had cauliflower soup. This recipe sounds quite yummy. I love a good potato or potato and sausage soup. I'm sure I'd love this. Thanks for sharing with us at The HomeAcre Hop!

ok, you make your own coconut milk?? How do you do that? I made a cauliflower soup last year and it immediately became a favorite. I'm excited to try this version now. It sounds delicious.
Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friday
🙂 I hope you enjoy it Adelina! Coconut milk is super easy to make. I have a link for it up there in the ingredient list. You should totally do it! 🙂
Looks yummy! Full of things I love to eat 🙂
🙂 Thanks Sherry!
Hi, This looks wonderful – and green and bright, perfect for midwinter. Roasted cauliflower is so tasty, it probably was even better than with the steamed version. And I love cauloflower with pasta. I’m going to have to try this one!
I am really happy for you and your family. Anyway, thank you for sharing this recipe. This really looks tasty and this is one of the reasons why this is in demand in diners and even in catering Fort Lauderdale. I hope that my folks will enjoy this as much as you do. Thank you again. Keep posting such great recipes.
Thank you. I hope you enjoy it!
Hi Raia how are you? This soup looks yummy and can’t wait to try it. Btw, can you tell me what kind of bowl you used in the photo. They are really cute.
Thanks, Cynthia! The bowl is from Bauer Pottery. I just got it at the thrift store, though, so I’m not sure you could find any like it online anymore. 🙂
This sounds tasty! I think it would be better with some Cajun seasonings too. I will try it and let you know!
Sounds like a tasty addition!
