Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Potato soups are one of my favorite. They are rich and comforting and pair well with lots of different flavors. But starchy foods are out when you are healing a leaky gut or a damaged bacterial flora.  Hence, cauliflower to the rescue! This cheesy cauliflower soup has such a creamy, satisfying texture, you won't be able to tell it's not potato!

Cauliflower is truly an amazing vegetable though and can be used to imitate potatoes in many dishes. Try mashed cauliflower or cauliflower pizza crust and you'll be surprised at what cauliflower can do!
