Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

Cauliflower is becoming more and more popular as a low carb alternative to potatoes, and even pizza crusts!  Seriously, you can find just about made with cauliflower now a days!  If you’ve jumped around the blog at all yet, you” see that I use it a lot.  I like the taste, but I also use it often as a healthier replacement for potatoes or wheat flour and have been pretty happy with the results.  I have a few soup recipes that use cauliflower as the base. This Cheesy Cauliflower Soup recipe is designed as an alternative to a cheesy potato soup, but I personally think cauliflower should get more credit than as just a stand in for potatoes for those of us looking for low carb solutions.  This soup is really delicious!  I make a big batch and freeze it in individual containers so I always have a quick lunch on hand when I need it!

It can be modified in a thousand different ways.  This was the first time I made it this particular way!  This recipe as written is vegetarian, low-carb, and can easily be modified into a gluten free variety without sacrificing taste or texture at all!  For all you meat lovers out there, mix in some bacon, or sprinkle it on top.  You can also easily swap out the vegetable stock for chicken stock if that’s what you keep on hand in your pantry as well.  I could go on and on.
