Table for 1 and Cauliflower Soup !

What.... you say blech to cauliflowers? Do you like potato soup? Would you like a less starchy version?
Search no more.... you have found a healthy home-made delicious potato soup substitute!
INGREDIENTS:
2 large heads of cauliflower
3 or 4 onions (per your taste)
Chicken or Veggie stock 2 to 3 cups(and if you don't make your own,splurge for the kind with no MSG)
1-2 cups fat free half and half
Shredded cheddar per your taste
and salt and pepper
Ya know how on Top Chef they tell you it takes time for the soup flavors to "develop"? Well...I think its true. Which is why I make my soups mostly in crock-pots!
I use this gorg crock-pot from Target. Super cheap, lots of cook room ,and oh so sleek !

Honestly... I change up the recipe every time. Just remember to add lots of the veggies and let it cook all day!
Also...keep in mind that soup thickens after it has been cooked...so no real need to add flour.
After it has cooked most of the morning and afternoon,I get a slotted spoon and put the cooked veggies in the blender and puree everything till smooth. I put it back in the pot with the broth and add fat free half and half ,a couple of cups of shredded cheddar ,salt and pepper,and let it warm for another 30 minutes to an hour.

So... I got a little freaky with the pepper. If you follow a low carb diet this is absolutely perfect! This soup is quite dee-lish.... healthy or not!


...and it yields plenty of leftovers for the rest of the week!


At my table for 1, I even got to use my newly thrifted danish modern candle holders...and new to me milk glass/juice glass for my grapefruit juice!

I'm sure the soup is yummy, but I couldn't take my eyes off that cute little embroidered napkin. Man do I love me some vintage linens. Leave it to you to even have cute table linens.
