Cauliflower Soup

This is a crock pot recipe that my friend Michelle shared with me.  It's easy and low fat.  Just put everything in the crock pot and let it cook all day.
  • 1 medium sized cauliflower
  • 2 C. of peeled and cubed potatoes
  • 3 medium leeks
  • 4 C. of chicken broth
  • 1 T. Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
  • 8 ounces of Swiss cheese cut in cubes
  1. Cut leeks lengthwise and wash well
  2. Break cauliflower into pieces and rinse
  3. Slice the leeks into semi-circles  
  4. Add all ingredients into a crock pot, except Swiss cheese
  5. Cook on low heat for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours
  6. Using an electric mixer or stick blender, puree for a minute or so
  7. Turn off crock pot and add cubes of cheese
  8. Let cheese melt for about 5 minutes and then serve
Tips and Tricks:
  • I use a Baby Swiss cheese for this recipe.  It melts smoother.
  • You can use green onions if you can’t find leeks.  It tastes similar.
