Cauliflower Red Pepper Soup

2018年8月8日

I’ve been going through a soup phase… as you’ll notice over the next few weeks.  With the weather getting cooler here in Colorado, it’s perfect time for a warm, soupy dinner!  My friend Jen posted this recipe on Facebook a few weeks ago, and I couldn’t resist trying it!

Cauliflower Red Pepper Soup

It’s my very first attempt at Cauliflower Soup, and I’m officially a fan!  It’s loaded with cauliflower, red pepper, and has a warm potato base.  It reminds me of a rich, flavorful mashed potato… and I love mashed potatoes.  Enjoy!
