A bowl of Cauliflower Broccoli Cheese SoupThis is a lightened version of a creamy broccoli cheese soup. Instead of using potatoes and roux made from flour and butter, I simply use cauliflower. You can have the same comforting soup with a fraction of the calories. If you'd like to make this vegetarian or even vegan, you can use veggie broth, almond milk, and cashew cheese. Yum!

I love cream soups. This combination was great. I used broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes and cheese! It was the best. I had never made it before. I just made it as I went along.
