Serving: 4
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 5 hrs
Total Time 5 hrs 15 mins

Ingredients
 

  • 500g cauliflower florets, chopped
  • 4 cups/1L vegetable stock (reduced salt if you prefer)
  • 1 x 250g block Philadelphia cream cheese cubed
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 200g prosciutto sliced into short strips
  • 2 tsp butter

Instructions
 

  • Place cauliflower, stock, mustard and cream cheese into slow cooker
  • Cook on LOW for 3hrs
  • When soup is almost finished this 3hr cooking time, pan fry your prosciutto in butter until crisped
  • Reserve a small amount of crisp prosciutto for garnish
  • Using a stick blender blend the soup contents until smooth. I did this in another bowl to preserve the surface of my slow cooker then returned it to the slow cooker once blended.
  • Add remaining prosciutto to soup, stir to combine and continue to cook on LOW for another 2hrs for depth of flavour
  • Serve witha scattering of cooked prosciutto

Notes

  • The pan frying step could be done as step 1 in a searing slow cooker if you prefer not to dirty extra dishes, then set aside in fridge until needed
  • You may prefer to add your prosciutto to soup as is without the pan crisping - that's ok too
  • Serve as a soup entree or main

  1. Very tasty. I added a couple of cloves of mixed garlic to the recipe. Will definitely make it again.

  2. ❤️ Love this soup. So easy to make. I added garlic and onions and didn’t put the prosciutto through the whole soup as it was quite a salty variety and just served it on top. What a fabulous recipe so tasty 😋, loved the cream cheese and mustard. Great for the family. Give it a try you will 😍. My family adored it.
