Creamy Cauliflower Soup : It's Low in Carbs

With parts of the UK on weather alert for Storm Angus, and with many other of our readers living in the Northern Hemisphere and experiencing cooler weather you just may be thinking about a bowl of tasty and low carb soup...

Let's face it - there is nothing so welcoming as a bowl of warm tasting soup and this 'Creamy Cauliflower Soup' is just so easy - it is rich, tasty and can make an easy option after a busy day at work or play.

Serves Two
3.5g carb per serving
2 cups Cauliflower flowerettes
50 g Butter
½ cup Cream
1 Garlic clove
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese (grated or sliced)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Boil cauliflower until soft. Drain cauliflower (put the drained excess water aside) and place in a blender with butter, cream, Parmesan cheese, and garlic . Blend cauliflower etc until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Thin the soup down with excess cauliflower water if you prefer a thinner soup.

This Creamy Cauliflower Soup can be stored and served for tomorrow's lunch.

Note that the carb count is based on 2 serves. If you choose to thin your soup with the excess cauliflower water, the recipe could easily stretch to 3 or 4 servings.

All the best Jan

We love soup this time of year, Jan. My husband loves cauliflower so I'm going to give this recipe a try. It does sound quite rich so I'm sure a cup with a salad would be wonderful for dinner. Have a wonderful week ahead. ♥
