Cream of Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower Soup

Fall is finally upon us…even though today’s 80-degree weather would disagree! However, last week I was feeling some soup. So, I decided to make SkinnyTaste’s Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower Soup.

I had to make one adjustment to the recipe to make it Ideal Protein Phase 1 friendly – the removal of the shallots and butter. Instead, I decided to season the soup with both onion and garlic powder.

Overall, I was very impressed with this recipe. I wasn’t 100% sure that it was going to be something that I liked…but it is so good! This is a great way to get your veggies and not feel like a rabbit! 🙂

To make it more robust for a dinner I added some diced grilled chicken into the mix. This addition made it even better!
