Recipe Notes

Recipe adapted from GeniusKitchen.com


To make this in your slow cooker, brown the meat with onions and garlic, then place inside the slow cooker along with the broth and cauliflower. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours. Stir in kale and cream at the end. Serve hot.

This soup is AMAZING!

It’s my favorite dish at Olive Garden, and the home-made low-carb version tastes so similar, maybe even better! My husband said he liked the cauliflower more than potatoes, and my kids actually ate the cauliflower without complaining! The leftovers are really great as well.

We really LOVED this easy low carb meal idea!
