Cauliflower Cheese soup
Crockpot Cauliflower Soup
I am always looking for a very creamy soup, I love a creamy soup. Really I don’t think there is anything better then a warm bowl of creamy soup for dinner. Even better is a soup that I don’t have to stand over the stove making.
I have been trying to use my slowcooker more often, it saves my sanity most days with the craziness of our household. When dinner time rolls around, the stress is gone from figuring out what to make for dinner when I am able to throw dinner in the crockpot in the morning.
When you are making this cauliflower and cheese soup recipe there is some planning that you can do the day before so it is quicker to get everything into the crockpot. I personally like to plan a meal the night before that has whole roasted cauliflower as a side dish. Then I make a double batch of the roasted cauliflower, serve part for dinner and then put the other in a container in the fridge to use the next day when making this cauliflower and cheese soup recipe.
When you are making this slow cooker cauliflower soup you can use homemade chicken stock or store bought. Whichever your preference is. I personally like to make a big batch of homemade chicken stock and then keep it in the freezer. I portion my frozen chicken stock in to 3 cups per container so I have exactly what I need for the recipes I make.
