Creamy vegetable soup combining broccoli and cauliflower
This cold weather in Chicago is perfect for a bowl of soup, and I wanted a healthy one that packed loads of flavor. Broccoli Cauliflower Soup took broccoli, cauliflower, a few spices and it was simmered to perfection. Purée it up in the blender and ladle into bowls. I then finish mine off with GF croutons, cheese and parsley. The soup was super silky and smooth, and just what I needed this week. If you’re looking to give your kids veggies, you can’t go wrong with this! It's packed with the veggies and the creaminess is just perfect.
