Multi-colored cauliflower makes it easy to brighten up some of your favorite dishes, like cauliflower soup. In our recipe for Carnival Cauliflower Soup we've used purple and orange cauliflower to give our soup a festive look. Not only does it look like fun, but it tastes creamy and delicious too!

What You'll Need

  • 1 head orange cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 6 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 cup chopped onion, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1 head purple cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 1 cup half-and-half, divided

What to Do

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine orange cauliflower, 3 cups broth, 1/2 cup onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; set aside.
  2. In another medium saucepan, combine purple cauliflower, the remaining 3 cups broth, 1/2 cup onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Bring both saucepans to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, or until cauliflower is very tender.
  4. Using a blender or immersion blender, puree each saucepan separately until smooth (return to saucepans, if using a standard blender). Stir 1/2 cup half-and-half into each saucepan and simmer an additional 5 minutes, or until hot. To get its fun look, pour equal amounts of each soup into each bowl at the same time, and swirl with a knife.


You can find orange and purple cauliflower at select markets throughout the year. If you don't see it, ask the produce manager to see if they can get it for you.
