Cauliflower Mac and Cheese Soup
It’s a mash up of my favorite things: Mac ‘n’ cheese, soup and cauliflower!
Cauliflower and cheese are such a natural combination. That’s why I just couldn’t resist putting them together for part of our Cauliflower Rice Series. (And I’m excited to say that other contributors to this series also used this same beautiful pairing. You’ve got to check out this this Mashed Cauliflower with Cheese and these Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks).
This is one of those recipes where several things that I love collide into one. As I said, I love the cauliflower and cheese combination. I also love mac & cheese. AND I love soup. Cauliflower Mac and Cheese Soup. Boom!
This is a really easy recipe to make. You boil macaroni noodles in chicken broth. While they cook you soften the riced cauliflower in the microwave. Once the noodles are cooked, this is important…don’t drain them. I’m going to say that again: DO NOT drain them. Instead, you add a mixture of milk and flour to the pasta and cooking water. The milk and flour mixes with the water to turn it into a creamy soup. Add in your softened Collie flower, and a lot of cheese, and you’re done! Super good, Right?
