Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup

 

I made this tonight – so good. but I can’t say I followed the recipe. after I added the cauliflower to the slow cooker it became abundantly clear that my cooker was smaller that what the recipe called for. So I winged it. About equal portions of sweet potato and cauliflower, enough of white onion, 3 green onions, 3 cloves of garlic. Still about a quart of broth. then all the milk and cream cheese. By the time 5 hours had passed, I had forgotten I didn’t make the full recipe! I really like it with uncured turkey bacon, green onion and cheddar as toppings.

Ingredients
  • 2 lbs fresh cauliflower, roughly chopped
  • 2 lbs sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 quart vegetable broth
  • 1 large onion, diced
