Creamy Cauliflower Soup

A few weeks ago I came across this Creamy Cauliflower Soup on Pinterest and wanted to immediately try it. I love cauliflower and I love potato soup and I figured it would be similar so I wrote down all of the ingredients and picked them up at the grocery store that following weekend.

The next week I got everything chopped up and ready, then cooked it up- It didn’t take long and we were filling our bellies with warm soup.

At this point, you can imagine how amazing my house was smelling! It was mouth watering!

I used half low sodium broth and half regular broth- because it’s what I already had. But it was fine and I don’t think it actually made any difference.

Any time I make a new meal I always ask everyone, “What’s the verdict?” and this particular soup didn’t exactly “win over” my kids. Zach, who is 12, said it was ok. But Tyler and Summer, who are 4 and 2, would barely touch it. My husband thought it was good and I thought it was delicious. I ended up eating leftovers for lunch and dinner the next day!

Yum, who is ready for a delicious creamy soup? What is your favorite soup?
