Healthy Cauliflower Soup

This easy healthy cauliflower soup is ready in 15 minutes with 5-6 basic ingredients. Hot wings craving killed with cancer fighting vegetable soup. It is made creamy without cream but rather with secret vegetable. And no need to roast the cauliflower because it’s simply not my life past 12 years and 10 more years. One reader reported roasted cauliflower doesn’t puree well. Even better, more excuses not to roast it.

And this cream of cauliflower soup comes with a heat kick. It’s amazing on a chilly day! Enjoy!

    This soup is sooooo good! I was hesitant in making it at first but I’m so glad I did. I used corn kernels instead of chickpeas, which I think comes down to personal preference. I highly recommend!

      Love this cauliflower soup! Just made it. Don’t have an immersion blender but regular blender was fine. Used whatever hot sauce I had and have chives instead of scallions but it is amazing. Look forward to finding other recipes.

        I used 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes instead of the hot sauce which gave us plenty of heat. The blue cheese crumbles added an extra tang. Seal of approval from my husband who is more of a cheese sandwich man for lunch.

    This is SO good made as written. I wouldn’t change a thing. I wasn’t sure how flavorful this would be with so few ingredients. It’s so yummy and I love it! Thank you for sharing!!!
