During the Fall and Winter seasons, one of our favorite things to eat is soup. There are countless options, and more importantly, many are easy and fast. Our new favorite is Cauliflower soup, but it tastes just like creamy potato leek soup! The best part? It’s not only low calorie, but low carb too!! It’s so delicious, you won’t be able to taste a difference! Enjoy and let us know if you loved it like we do 🙂
2 cups frozen cauliflower (I put in the whole bag I get from our local grocery store)
2 cups low sodium chicken stock or broth
3 tbs of low fat cream cheese OR 3 triangles of laughing cow cheese (our fave is the garlic herb)
2 tbs shredded colby jack cheese
salt and pepper to taste
scallions & turkey bacon bits to top
Put cauliflower in a small pot with 2 cups of chicken stock and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook until very soft.
Remove from heat and add your cream cheese, and salt to taste. Use a stick blender to puree until smooth, or cool to warm and puree in the regular blender. The consistency is a smooth, with a few small chunks. It gives that heartiness of potato soup.
Super simple, right?! Now, you can add your toppings, maybe a grilled cheese on the side and Bon Appetit! We didn’t add bacon last night as it was meatless Monday in our house, but it definitely makes it more delicious 🙂
