I adapted this recipe from one that I heard from a fellow food online. I love creme of broccoli soup and thought that this would be an excellent low calorie choice and wanted to try something different. You may want to double the recipe, the only problem is there was not enough!

  • 1 head of cauliflower, diced in 1/2″ chunks
  • 1 quart water
  • Italian Herb Blend (Homemade or Store Bought)
  • 1/3 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup of half and half or milk
  • 1/2 cup of Parmesan
  • salt, pepper, cayenne as desired

Dice up the cauliflower with the herb blend and boil for about 20 minutes. Remove most of the water leaving about a cup of water. Remove from heat when soft and blend in a food processor or blender.

Meanwhile, keep the pot hot and add butter, Parmesan and milk. Add back the pureed cauliflower and add salt, pepper, cayenne as desired.
