WW Recipe of the Day: Creamy Crock Pot Cauliflower Potato Soup
This cauliflower potato soup recipe proves that it's possible to create a creamy and rich tasting potato soup that's low in carbs, calories, fat and points.
I didn't really believe it was possible, but the smooth puree of cauliflower, potatoes and garlic gives the impression of being very rich, when, in reality, it's not.
How can soup made from more cauliflower than potatoes be as satisfying as traditional loaded potato soup?
I'm not sure but I'm glad it does, especially when you consider the calories/points saved!
This steamy, creamy cauliflower potato soup is super simple to make in your slow cooker (affiliate link) with just a handful of ingredients too.
At the height of holiday cookie season, lighter, healthier, satisfying soups like this help me keep my diet balanced.

Hi martha: Are you aware that WW is now using a different way to track Points. They are now Smart Points and use different nutritional values - Calories, saturated fat, sugars, protein. I mention it because I enjoy your site and thought you should know when giving out Points values.
Hi Suzanne, Yes, I'm aware that WW is now using SmartPoints instead of PointsPlus. I'll be posting about my first 3 weeks using the new system tomorrow! I was given the opportunity to take a sneak-peek, but am sworn to silence until tomorrow at 10, when WW officially unveils the new plan. I'll begin including SmartPoints and their associated nutritional values with all new recipes effective immediately but it will take some time to go back and update the old ones.
I am glad posted points plus. I love that program and I lost 30lbs. It is nice when people post both:)! The soup was so good! Having left overs for lunch right now.
Garlic fell off the list of what gets added to the crock pot. Remember the garlic!
Was really excited to try this recipe, turned out to be gross! I don't normally do reviews but I did with this one because of how strongly I disliked this soup. Had a strange flavor and did not taste like potato soup. I have used Cauliflower before in recipes and they have came out excellent but this one was NOT one of those. It has a strange texture and taste.
Hi Kylie, Sorry you didn't like it. We did. Everybody's tastes are so different!!
