Craving a bowl of savory potato soup but don’t want all the calories and fat that comes with it? Stir up Creamy Cauliflower Soup, instead. This 30-minute meal gets its creaminess from the cauliflower and white beans, which also provide a good source of fiber and protein — to fill you up and thaw you out on a cold winter day.
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 large Vidalia onion
1/4 tsp. finely chopped fresh majoram
4 cups organic chicken broth

1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

2. Remove from heat; transfer mixture to a blender, puree in batches, then transfer to a serving bowl.
3. Serve warm.
