Cauliflower Au Gratin Soup

A favorite dish made into a great tasting soup.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a sauce pan boil onions and peppers in broth until tender. Reduce heat.
  2. Cut cauliflower into bite size pieces. Steam or zap in microwave until tender.
  3. Cube Velveeta cheese and add to broth. Make sure not to allow this to boil otherwise it will curdle.
  4. Stir until cheese is melted.
  5. Drain cauliflower and add to soup.
  6. Pepper to taste.
  7. While not thick like "real" cheese soup it's great for a cold Winter day!
  8. From Low Carb Creations Vol. 4

Sounds good and I think I'll try it. But rather than Velveeta Light I think I'll use smaller amount of 2% shredded cheddar.

This was a great Recipe. I wanted to use it as a main dish for lunch for my family so I added some diced chicken and ham. Along with a few spices cumin, a dash of cayenne pepper and black pepper. I was out of onion and green pepper so I added a stir fry pepper mix instead. It gave it a nice colorful and festive look. It was so filling and yummy.

I really enjoyed this cheesey flavored soup. I added a half cup of brown rice to give it more filling qualities. I will be making this again.

I think I will blend the cauliflower to make it thicker and creamy in texture--then add 2 or more cups of chopped, steamed brocolli
