I hate cooked cauliflower, so I don’t know what possessed me to think it was a good idea to make this. I blame the luring depths of my google search for healthy soups and the guise the cauliflower ones took on to resemble their less healthy counterpart, potato soup.
Whatever it was that convinced me it was a good idea to make cauliflower soup, I am so grateful. This is my new favorite winter soup!
I combined recipe ideas from my google search based on ingredients I already had in my kitchen. The closest recipe to mine is from Slender Kitchen and can be found here.
Cozy Cauliflower Soup
1 frozen bag of cauliflower
