Cheesy-Potato and Cauliflower Soup

This weekend I was going through some papers in the house and decided to weed out my unused cookbooks too. I found a recipe for Two-Cheese Potato and Cauliflower Soup, which happened to not need any adjustment to make it Primal but I wound up making a few changes anyway. :)

Cheesy Potato Cauliflower SoupI’m not a fan of blue cheese so I took that out and made a few changes in the end to create a varied consistency. Overall Jeff really enjoyed this soup and I hope you do too.
