Cauliflower Soup

I love football season. I especially love the yummy, bad for me foods. But sometimes I do need to balance out all those calories and I turn to cauliflower soup! I gotta be able to fit into my jersey!

Enter cauliflower soup. I have been turning to cauliflower lately to try and expand my vegetable palate.

This soup is really my favorite way to have cauliflower that I have tried thus far.



Ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower, chopped
2 tablespoons of butter
1 tsp garlic powder
1 onion, diced
1/4 flour
1 cup peas
12 oz chicken or turkey broth
1 cup of milk
1 bay leaf
4 slices of bacon, chopped and crispy
cheddar cheese to top
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Melt butter in a large stock pot and add garlic powder, onion, and peas. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir in cauliflower and bay leaf and cook until the cauliflower is tender (about another 5 minutes)

Whisk in flower until lightly browned and gradually whisk in milk and broth stirring constantly until slightly thickened.

Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat. Simmer until the cauliflower are tender (about 15 minutes) and season with salt and pepper. If the soup is too thick, add more milk (I usually end up adding in some)

Serve garnished with cheddar cheese and bacon!

  3. I just came across a similar recipe the other day and we're making it for dinner tonight! My fiance is gluten free so he was so excited when I showed him a creamy soup recipe with no flour!
