We’ve had a pretty damp and cold September in Calgary, which has forced me to start my winter cooking earlier than I wanted to. I love soups, but never really make them, so it’s been my goal this winter to change that.
This morning, I google a bunch of recipes to use up the Costco sized bag of cauliflower still lingering in our fridge. I couldn’t really find what I was looking for on google, so I decided to make my own.
The ingredients are simple and the soup itself is very easy to make.
1 package of bacon
1 large onion
3 cloves of garlic
2 largish potatoes
1 container of chicken broth
Equivalent of 1 head of cauliflower
1/4 cup of cream
1) In a pot, cook the bacon to a crispy level. Once it’s finished, remove from the pot but keep the grease inside.
2) Add in the diced onions and chopped garlic. Stir until cooked (about 5 mins).
3) Add in the two peeled and chopped potatoes, and the cauliflower. Also, pour in all of the chicken broth.
4) Simmer for 30 minutes.
5) Once finished, add almost all of the bacon you previously cooked, and blend the soup until it’s puréed. Add it back into the pot and stir in 1/4 cup of cream (I only had coffee cream to use). Don’t let the soup boil, but make sure it’s warm.
6) Serve into bowls and garnish with the leftover bacon and parmesan cheese.
This soup is hearty, yummy, and full of flavor. Enjoy!
