Copycat Zuppas Wisconsin Cauliflower // This fantastic soup is perfect for those colder evenings to warm you from the inside out. It's light flavor is perfectly paired with a good salad and warm piece of bread! | Tried and TastyCafe Zuppas is one of my favorite paces to grab some soup and a sandwich. The Wisconsin Cauliflower soup is one of a few soups that I’m excited to re-create! It’s smooth cheesy flavor is wonderful for those cool nights and is perfect paired with My Favorite Salad and some fresh warm bread. If you’ve never had cauliflower soup, you are missing out (if you are a cauliflower fan – you’ve also got to try my Riced Cauliflower).

Copycat recipes are all the rage. It’s the best way to have your restaurant favorites right at home. Not only are you able to control what ingredients go in, you can also save money! I’d say that’s a win/win! If you love this copycat, I’ll be presenting at the Pinners Conference Friday November 7th at 1:30 pm. My class of ‘Copycat Favorites’ will be a great one to catch for the Utah locals. I’d love to meet you, chat with you, and of course… feed you!

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 6 T butter
  • 2 lbs. cauliflower
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 4 c. whole milk
