Cheddar Cheese and "Potato" Soup

What could be wrong with potatoes? They are higher in calories then most other vegetables. So, instead of using potatoes, Rocco uses cauliflower. A pureed cauliflower has a similar texture to mashed potatoes. It does taste different, though, it's not quite a potato. So, if you are craving a potato soup, this might not be for you.

The other thing is that this doesn't last in the fridge very long. I'm sure why. It might have been that the cauliflower we used as starting to get old. In any case, I'd recommend eating it right away and not saving left overs.

So, normal cheddar and potato soup comes in at around 700 calories. This soup comes in at around 200 calories. The chopped scallion really makes this good, so don't skip it.
