Dairy Free Chunky Cauliflower Soup is lightly spiced comfort food. Easy to make and it will have everyone coming back for more.
At the moment you have your first taste of Dairy Free Chunky Cauliflower Soup you will be glad you decided to make this warming and flavorful soup. The flavors are mild enough that the pickiest of eaters will like it too.
It’s cold outside but even when you’re indoors and feeling cozy it’s still a real treat to have a nice hot soup to warm you from the inside out. It can’t exactly get your toes toasty but Dairy Free Chunky Cauliflower Soup goes a long way on getting you there.
Have you ever had a soup party? They are so much fun and everyone is pleasantly surprised when they see the cauldrons/slow cookers lined up.
Imagine very few appetizers, such as stuffed mushrooms and maybe one other finger food. Cocktails, beer and wine rounds out your setting. Four different soups would be a lot of fun with plenty of bowls for people who want to try more than one or two or three.
Since Dairy Free Chunky Cauliflower Soup is a while creamy soup I would also have a broth soup such as Vegetable Barley Soup. Then possibly Homemade Tomato Soup from the Slow Cooker because everybody loves tomato soup. Lastly, how about Slow Cooker Red Lentil Soup? Lentils are the ‘new favorite’.
So there you have it. A wonderful soup for your family or pull out all the stops and have a party.
