Creamy Cauliflower White Bean Soup

I’m getting excited for soup weather! This creamy cauliflower soup I adapted from The Harvest Kitchen is a winner in my eyes because it’s packed with veggies and the boys demolish it (I serve theirs over pasta), and I serve mine with toast to dip. This is a good one to make in bulk and keep some in the freezer for up to 2 months.
