I had some leftover orange cauliflower, a few potatoes, a few carrots, some red onion and fat free half and half, so I made a go at turning that into soup!
First I cut up the cauliflower, peeled and cut the potatoes and cut them into smaller pieces, grated and sliced the carrot, and put ½ a red onion into a big pot with 4 cups of chicken stock. Bring to a boil and let simmer until the veggies are soft.
Transfer that to a blender (take the middle insert out to let the steam escape) and puree until smooth. Return that to the pot. Add 1 cup fat free half and half and 2 oz. of cheddar cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste. I also wanted it a little spicier, so I added about a tsp. of crushed red pepper flakes.
The taste was really good, I loved the flavors, but it was a little on the thin side. I think next time I would add a few more potatoes to thicken it up. But other than that, it’s a great way to clean out your fridge!
