Don’t be fooled by this Cauliflower Horseradish soup’s deliciously creamy texture. It is actually extremely low in calories & has less than 2 grams of fat per serving. It’s also ready in under 20 minutes!
This Creamy Cauliflower Horseradish Soup has got to be one of the easiest soups ever to make and it can be ready from start to finish in under twenty minutes. It is also extremely healthy and happens to have only about 145 calories per serving. As well as being low calorie it is also oil free, dairy free and gluten free.
Potatoes are a fantastic ingredient to add to your soups as when blended they become really creamy. They are used here in addition to the cauliflower, both to make the soup more filling and to thicken it. They also add to it’s luxuriously creamy texture.
I didn’t purposely set out to make a low calorie soup. It just kind of accidentally happened, but as it’s Easter weekend it might be useful for all of us to have this recipe on hand. It will help make us feel slightly better about the copious amounts of chocolate we consume this weekend!
I love to serve this Creamy Cauliflower Horseradish Soup with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and some caramelized onions or toasted pumpkin seeds. One of these toppings, along with the ubiquitous crusty bread makes a delicious, light and tasty meal.
