We recently got our hands on the Our Place Perfect Pot, and our first thought was one-pot meals, so we immediately made this One-Pot Creamy Chicken and “Rice” Soup. One-pot meals are convenient (fewer dishes to wash) and cozy (think Whole30 comfort food). The Perfect Pot has several features that make this kind of cooking a breeze: a rack that can be used for roasting or steaming; a snug-fitting lid, great for braising; a perfect-pour spout and built-in strainer; and a built-in spoon rest to keep the mess to a minimum.

This One-Pot Creamy Chicken and Cauliflower Rice Soup is like a Whole30 hug in a bowl. Make a big batch and serve it to your family as a cozy fall meal, or portion it out for your weekly meal prep.
