Creamy Cauliflower Potato Soup

I have a tendency to eat a lot of the same meals week after week. When I find something I like, I will keep eating it until I get sick of it. For instance, I've been making my Sweet Potato Butternut Squash Soup every single week for about the last 3 months. It's so ridiculously good! Some days I'd drink it like soup and other days, I'd mix it with veggies as if it were a sauce.

Last week, I decided to branch out and see what would happen if I used the same recipe but swapped out the sweet potato with a regular potato and replace the butternut squash with a head of cauliflower.

The result was delicious!

Creamy comfort food that also doubles as a sauce for chicken, veggies, or grains. Veggies for the win! I hope you enjoy it.

**TIME SAVING TIP: Prep your veggies ahead of time (e.g. the day before) so when you're ready to make the soup, all you have to do is toss them in the stock pot. Easy!
