Creamy cauliflower and sweet potato bisque (veg friendly): Good Eats with Le Physique

potato soup

I love this recipe for three very great reasons

(1) it’s fast and easy to make

(2) it’s so yummy

(2) it’s got vegetables and is healthy

Okay fine, so that’s more like four reasons but you’re probably tired of us nagging you to get more vegetables!  Cauliflower, sweet potato and onion, it’s dairy and gluten free, what more could you ask for?

If you want to prep ahead of time, this works great in a slow cooker, just set it up 4-5 hours ahead and you’ll have a delicious dinner when you get home from work!
