{Creamy Cauliflower Soup}

Minnesota has been experiencing some bitterly cold days this winter!  In fact this winter is one of the coldest that Minnesota has seen in about 20 years!  There are days where I ask myself, why I am still living in this state, but then I just remember all the wonderful things about Minnesota.  Like our wonderful lakes, great running trails, fabulous restaurants and of course my family being here!  

During the bitter cold winter season,  soup is the perfect go to meal to warm up with after a long day.  I love this soup for many reasons.  This delicious cauliflower soup is creamy (without the addition of heavy cream), full of flavor and is quick to prepare.  Plus, you only need one pot which means easy clean up!
