The best 1 point soup recipe ever! You will thank me for it….I guarantee it!

We are getting some mighty cold weather already in the great upper midwest…and our first blanket of snow (thank god it’s already melting!!)  And I don’t know about you-but I CRAVE soup when the temperatures drop.  I hate eating soup from a can or from a restaurant because of the inevitable increased sodium content-and the water bloating that follows (yuck, fat finger syndrome!)  Anyway-I came across this recipe and it’s one of the best I have found for homemade soup.  It’s creamy and very satisfying for such a easy, low calorie soup.  I use the lower sodium content chicken broth-or you can use bouillon (‘better than bouillon’ brand is good)

In short-it’s AWESOME!  Serve it with a little parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and nice piece of crusty bread (because of all the calories saved you CAN afford it) and enjoy.  Cauliflower-Soup
