To start the soup recipe, heat up some of the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat and saute the onion until it is translucent about 5 to 6 minutes. Then add some chopped cauliflower and cook for about 8 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender. Then season with some salt and pepper, and if you are adding red pepper flakes to the recipe add those, and pour in the evaporated milk. Stir to combine the ingredients. Then use an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a blender or food processor, and blend until the ingredients are smooth.
Then heat the remaining olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium- heat and saute the broccoli florets until they are bright green and tender crisp about 6 to 7 minutes. Then season with some salt and pepper, then pour in the chicken broth or vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to a simmer and slowly pour in the cauliflower puree and cheddar cheese. Add the Worcestershire sauce and stir the mixture until it is melted and smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if you feel it is necessary. Then transfer the soup to bowls and serve immediately.
