CAULIFLOWER CHOWDER

cauliflower-chowder-main_vctdwaPureed soups are nice and all, but sometimes you want something with a little more texture and heft to it: enter chowder! Chowder is a fantastic comfort food, only unlike cheap sugar it’s “comfort food” that involves an entire head of cauliflower, miscellaneous other vegetables, healthy fats, and healing bone stock.
