Cheesy Broccoli & Cauliflower Soup/Boozy Gingerbread Coffee With Bill

Updated: Dec 26, 2020

We had a casualty in the kitchen this episode! R.I.P to my cheese grater, you served me for many years and I am sorry Bill didn’t know his own strength while we made our Cheesy Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup.


Luckily, Bill made bread! So I guess I will forgive him for this...and for losing my cutting board behind my fridge. Join us as he tries to walk me through the bread-making process and our trials in soup making to dip it in. Don’t forget a glass of Gingerbread Coffee with Baileys!

Cheesy Broccoli & Cauliflower Soup





User Tips


  • We added a bit less of the required amount of broccoli and cauliflower, stopping when the flowerets were at the top of the broth.

  • After cooking broccoli and cauliflower until tender blend in a food processor to smooth out.

  • While making your roux we needed to use half an onion and the whites of three green onions, saving the greens as toppings for later.

  • To make the roux creamy we added 1 C of half and half instead of milk (I forgot the milk!)



  • We used 4oz of Havarti cheese with horseradish and 8oz cheddar. Honestly the horseradish was a wonderful addition! It had a subtle heat that really cut through all that cheese. I would go for a little more next time.

  • We topped each bowl with chopped green onions and a sprinkle of Hungarian paprika.






Gingerbread Coffee with Baileys


One of my favorite wintertime treats is the gingerbread latte from Starbucks. I vibe with it over the snowy season because it is a flavor that is actually not too sweet. All warm and spicy and wonderful, until it is no longer available! That is right, there was no gingerbread latte this year. So I made my own! I will not be denied! And I made it better because there is Baileys.


For Gingerbread Flavoring


  • 2 Tbsp Molasses

  • ¼ C Brown Sugar

  • ½ Tsp Ground Cinnamon

  • ½ Tsp Ground Ginger

  • ½ Tsp Ground Allspice

  • ½ Tsp Ground Nutmeg

  • ⅛ Tsp Salt


Per Drink

  • 8oz Fresh Coffee

  • 1 Tsp Flavoring

  • 1 ½ oz Baileys


In an airtight container combine molasses, sugar, and all spices. Mix together and add 1 tsp to the bottom of each coffee cup and stir in Baileys until blended. Top with hot coffee and enjoy on a cool night!
