This recipe goes in the “awesome taste, not so awesome photography” file. I made this today and I’m telling you it is one of my best recipes! It has so much flavor I can’t wait until my husband and son come home so they can try it. However I have so much going on for the holidays that my photos didn’t come out all that great. So you will just have to take my word that this creamy sun dried tomato chicken soup is out of this world. And it’s low carb, yay!
Using cauliflower cream to soups
I like to use cauliflower puree to thicken soup and to take the place of some of the cream. Today because I have so many elements in this soup I didn’t want to use too much so it acted more as a replacement for some of the cream rather than as a thickener. You could skip the cauliflower but it’s added nutrition so I would keep it in.

Spoon out the cauliflower to a blender, along with the parmesan cheese. Add a half cup of the stock and blend on high until nice and creamy.
Add the chopped sun dried tomatoes, garlic and chicken to the chicken broth. Mix well and then add in the cauliflower cream. Let this cook for a few minutes and then add in the spinach and cream. Let that cook for a minute more and you are done.
