Creamy Guilt-Free Cauliflower Soup

By:  Tara Fuller

This is an absolutely sinful tasting soup that is so low in both calories and fat, you can eat away without the slightest bit of guilt.  

Simple Cauliflower Soup
Recipe was passed to me by my sister and she doesn't know where it's from. If you know, please let us so we can give kudos where due

Ingredients

1 Onion
1 Head Cauliflower (Broken into small    
   florets)
1 Potato, peeled & diced
1 Stick of Celery, diced
2 cups Chicken or Vegetable Broth
2 cups milk (I used 1 percent)
3 Garlic Cloves (sliced)
   Dash of Nutmeg
   Salt & Pepper to taste

1) Sauté Onion & Celery for 5 minutes. Stir in Cauliflower, Potato & Garlic & sauté 5 more minutes.

2) Pour in the Chicken Broth, bring to a boil & then reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 minutes or until veggies are tender. Add the milk, stirring well to mix. Season with Nutmeg, Salt & Pepper. Using a handheld blender, blend to a smooth texture. You may also transfer soup into an upright blender such as a Vitamix to smooth.

Sprinkle with Parmesan as a garnish

  1. I made this for a second time, it turned out amazing. I had to tweak it a bit because I can't to starch, nor did I want to use milk. I used nonfat yogurt instead. Simply amazing and the parmesan makes a difference too. Thanks for posting, mizzy

  2. So did you omit the poato and use all broth?

  3. Yes, no potato. I used two cups of broth and 2 cups of "Nancy's non-fat plain yogurt". And to replace the potato I used a whole 6-7 stalks of celery.
