Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder Recipe

We have been getting lots of snow this winter, which is great for the drought, ski season, and soup days. I love warming up to a bowl of comforting soup on a cold day. Ok, on really cold and snowy days, I don’t leave the house, I stay inside where it is warm and toasty, but I still appreciate a bowl of hot soup.

We are currently loving this Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder. It is the perfect meal for winter!

Josh, unlike me, loves to get outside when there is a big snowstorm. He hits the ski slopes as often as possible. When he gets home, he is ready for warm, comfort food…and this chowder always hits the spot!

To make the chowder, we use roasted cauliflower instead of potatoes. Roasting the cauliflower adds a ton of flavor and keeps the chowder a little lighter. And if you think you don’t like cauliflower, you still have to try this chowder. Everyone that tries it, LOVES it! Even kids:)

I do add a little shredded cheese because it is comfort food:)

We like to serve the cauliflower chowder with crusty bread or crackers. Mmmm! I am ready for a bowl right now! Are you with me? I bet you will even want seconds!

Stay warm this winter with Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder! It is sure to keep you warm and cozy!

    Poor Marie. I hope you have ppl to answer some of these questions….

    People need to thoroughly read the recipe. Most of the answers are there for you. Also, some of the questions can be googled to get answers for amounts, etc.

    I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS SOUP.
    I made on Sunday and split up for lunches throughout the week, just as good as day 1.
    I sprinkled on a *little extra cheese when heating it up.
