I love creamy soups, but don’t like the amount of calories they contain thanks to the added heavy cream. That’s why this delicious, creamy cauliflower soup doesn’t contain any heavy cream.

What is the secret to it’s creaminess? A potato! Potatoes are a healthy way to make lusciously creamy soups in the Magic Bullet. I added some half-and-half for taste, but the creamy texture is mainly due to the chopped potato. Cauliflower alone can be a bland vegetable, so I added some garlic and parsley to add flavor. Fresh parsley tastes best, but if you have dried parsley, that’ll still add a nice flavor to your soup. Enjoy this creamy cauliflower soup with a piece of crusty bread for dipping.
