Cauliflower Blue Cheese Soup

Cauliflower Blue Cheese Soup

I started my serious relationship with cauliflower back a few years ago when the Southern husband and I decided to give the Atkins Diet a whirl.  Remember that one?  It promised you could eat all the bacon you wanted, so long as not one single carbohydrate passed your lips.  This sounds like heaven to me, until I got to the second day and realized that I loved carbohydrates as much as I love bacon, and the only reason I lasted on it long enough to lose a few pounds was that I realized that whipped cauliflower was actually almost as good as mashed potatoes. I had never truly appreciated the deliciousness of cauliflower before then, but ever since I’ve been figuring out different ways to serve it up, including this scrumptious cauliflower and blue cheese soup!
