Hi Nap Time friends, Kristy here again from Sweet Treats & More! Hope you are all craving soup as much as I am this time of year! This Tomato-Basil & Creamy Cauliflower Soup is the perfect bowl of soup to warm up to after a chilly night of trick-or-treating. Especially when you add a cute, I mean spooky, sour cream spider web to the bow (scroll down)l!
One of my favorite restaurants to eat at here in Utah has the best Tomato Basil Soup and the best Cauliflower Soup. When I go there, I like to put half of each in a bowl and mix them together. That’s where the inspiration for this soup comes from, but I tried to keep it light and healthy for us! Instead of using heavy cream like most tomato soups do, I used greek yogurt to help make it rich and creamy.
With all of the sugary sweets and calorie-laden candy we’ll be eating on Halloween it’s good to balance it with a healthy meal. It’s so thick and creamy and full of flavor, you’ll love it!
Make this soup fun for Halloween by adding some spooky sour cream spider webs. They’re super easy to make. Simply squeeze a dot of sour cream in the center of your bowl, then two to three circles around it. Drag a knife or a toothpick from the center dot to the outer circle of sour cream. Do this all around the center and you’ve got a spider web. It doesn’t have to be perfect!
The spider web was just the bait I needed to get my three year old to eat his bowl of soup! Worked like a charm. It’s such a fun soup to serve up on Halloween (or any day!)
Hi there! I’m Kristy, a wife, mom to two little boys, a runner, and just a girl that loves good food. I love cooking and baking for family and friends and love the memories that accompany good food. I kind of have a thing for sweets, especially chocolate and peanut butter. I like to keep things simple in the kitchen- simple meals and desserts using simple ingredients. I’d love for you to stop by, say hello, and find something yummy!
