Latin slow cooker: Cauliflower and bean soup perfect for winter (EXCLUSIVE RECIPE)
I don't know about you, but I've been craving soup lately. Honestly, this past week has been one very delicious adventure but I'm a little bit sick of eating Christmas leftovers right now. Instead, I've decided to make a dish that's lighter but is still going to not only taste great but be good to warm me up as winter gets colder.
This slow cooker Latin-spiced cauliflower and bean soup is exactly what I'm craving, actually. I love having cauliflower again after last week's slow cooker spicy vegetarian chili success. It was actually SO good in that dish that I decided to do it again to GREAT results. I mean, this dish is just amazing and I love it. Trust me and make it very, very soon for your whole family.
