I have seen so many people use cauliflower for things you would never have thought to try a few years ago...pizza crust for one, and have you seen that picture of a slow roasted head of cauliflower? NEVER would have thought to do that! And it looks so good!!
Well, my husband can't eat broccoli anymore (food sensitivities/allergies) and loves creamy broccoli cheese soup. We also love a good creamy potato soup, but so much starch there!
So I decided to try making a healthier creamy soup with cauliflower. IT.WAS.AWESOME! My 15 year old had FOUR helpings kind of awesome! It even tasted cheesy, but had no cheese in it.
I thought it perfect to share for this super cold weather we have had this week and are expecting more of. There are really minimal ingredients too. So, here you go.
1 large head of caulifower (or two smaller ones)
2-3 quarts water
1 package Turkey Bacon
1 cube beef or chicken bouillion or 1 cup broth
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2-3 T butter/margarine (or healthy butter substitute)
2-3 tsp of Italian seasoning
A dash of Mrs. Dash
salt and pepper to taste
Cut up your cauliflower and place in pot with water and seasonings and broth. Bring to a boil. Boil under cauliflower is soft. Remove from heat.
Cook bacon on stovetop while cauliflower is boiling. Cut into little pieces and add to the cauliflower and water mixture.
Use a potato masher to mash up the cauliflower as much as you can in the soup.
Add the yogurt and butter and mix on low/med with a mixer.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Such an inexpensive and easy soup that is pretty darn good AND pretty healthy as well!
