Cut the carbs with this delicious Slow Cooker Cauliflower Cheese Soup. So good topped with bacon and chives! I am starting my year off low in carbs and sugars. Naturally I am cooking most of my meals in the slow cooker still. This soup tastes like a cross between broccoli cheese soup and potato soup.
How to make Cauliflower Cheese Soup:
- Cut up a head of cauliflower into big chunks, and slice a leek. Add those to the slow cooker along with garlic, pepper and a box of chicken broth.
- Place the lid on the slow cooker and let this cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- When the cook time is done add everything from the slow cooker to a blender. Pulse until smooth. Add this blended mixture back to the slow cooker and then stir in heavy cream and cheddar cheese.
- Top each serving with chives, crumbled bacon and cheese if desired
Try this recipe, even if you’re not cutting carbs, you will see how good low carb food can be!
My husband loved this meal. I thought he would be mad thinking it was potato cheese soup. I will definitely be putting this meal on the menu often!
