Low-fat Bacon and Cauliflower Soup

Tasty soups are a great option for lunch or dinner and the best thing is, you can freeze what you don’t eat for another meal. This Bacon and Cauliflower Soup is low in fat, but high on taste.

  • 1 large brown onion, sliced
  • 125g lean bacon, cubed
  • 750g potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 25g reduced fat butter
