    Ingredients

    • One head of cauliflower

    • 4 cups chicken broth

    • 1 16 oz. package radishes

    • 2 small or 1 large onion, sliced

    • Assortment of other chopped veggies of your choice (about 1/3 to 1/2 cup each): ex: carrots, celery, bok choy, spinach, green onions, snap peas, etc.

    • 1 tsp. black pepper

    • 1/2 tsp. dill weed

    • 1/2 tsp. ground sage

    • Fresh cilantro (dime-sized bunch)

    • 2 tsp. minced garlic

    • 2-3 tbsp. olive oil

    • 1 lb. boneless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces

    • 1 8-oz. package reduced-fat cream cheese

    • 8 oz. assorted cheese (I usually use a mixture of whatever I have on hand)

    Directions

    • In a large covered saucepan, steam the head of cauliflower (chopped into florets) in 1 cup of chicken broth.

    • Trim the ends of the radishes and cut them into quarters. Chop the rest of the vegetables into desired sizes.

    • Add 2-3 tbsp. olive oil to a large pot on medium-high heat. Add the radishes, chopped onion, your selected assortment of veggies, pepper, sage, dill weed, ground sage, cilantro, and minced garlic (cover while cooking).

    • Cook until the vegetables are tender.

    • As the vegetables are cooking, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and sauté it with seasonings of choice in the olive oil in a non-stick skillet until fully cooked. You can also used pre-cooked shredded chicken.

    • When the cauliflower is soft, blend it, water/broth and all, in a blender with the cream cheese.

    • Add the cauliflower mixture and the cooked chicken to the large pot.

    • Add the cheese and stir. Heat until the cheese melts. Cook on low heat until desired thickness.

    • Add more seasoning (such as chicken bouillon) if needed. Feel free to add more liquid to thin down the soup if desired.
