Whole30 Creamy Cauliflower + Potato Soup
Great for double batches and freezing, this lightened up Whole30 Creamy Cauliflower + Potato Soup will have you feeling full and satisfied every time. Made with a mix of potatoes and cauliflower, it’s lighter on the carbs, dairy free, sugar free + Paleo approved!
If you’re like me, you crave soups in the winter. There’s nothing like warm comfort food when the weather is chilly and this recipe is among the best! Potato soup has always been one of my favorites, but it’s so carb heavy. No, I don’t count carbs but I do prefer to lighten the load in recipes so I don’t feel so heavy when I’m done eating. Instead of using only potatoes in this soup recipe, the base is made from a combination of potato and cauliflower which creates a really great flavor.
This soup is completely Whole30 friendly (although I eat it even when I’m not doing Whole30) and cooking nonstop can be exhausting during those 30 days, so I took a few measures that make this recipe easier. For instance, I find cauliflower to be really annoying to chop, so for this recipe I used frozen cauliflower. It works great in the dish and makes less prep work. Another fun little cooking hack I used in this is boiling the potatoes in the broth, rather than separate water. They’ll absorb more of the flavor and you can just keep adding to the pot rather than worrying about straining. These few changes make less work for you and easier recipe = happier eaters. Trust me.
