Creamy Potato Cauliflower and Ham Soup

"I have a potato soup recipe I love, but I wanted it to be a little less heavy on the carbs (not carb free, but just less). I decided to add cauliflower to replace some of the potatoes, and we couldn't really tell- plus it tasted great. I don't really measure my spices, so do it to your taste."

    I made this soup without any potatoes because I didn’t have any on hand. Used homemade chicken broth in place of water. Had to add one tablespoon of corn starch to thicken it. Used cheddar in place of cream cheese. Still turned out delicious. Never thought of using cauliflower with ham before but it turned out to be a good combination. Also used a hand mixer to blend everything minus the ham and some carrots. It turned our great. Everyone loved it.

    I’m going to make this for supper. It looks perfectly satisfying. ( by the way cauliflower is also a carbohydrate. Carbs in general aren’t your enemy.)

    What a lovely and delicious soup! Loved the cream cheese and the creamy texture it added to this soup. Easy to make and very filling. I used a carton of chicken stock plus 2 cups water and left off the bullion cube. Otherwise, made as directed with wonderful results.<br/>Made for Spring PAC, April, 2013.

    Delicious creamy soup! I ended up blending the whole soup in my blender including the carrots and ham and it is just so delightful. All of the flavors mingle together to create a soup worthy for a dinner party or to be served for lunch to the kids. My 2 year old grandson loved it and even had seconds. A great way to get picky eaters to eat vegetables that they normally would turn their noses up at. This recipe is going into my best of 2013 cookbook Made for Spring 2013 PAC.<br/>.
