Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, stemmed and broken into large pieces
  • 4 medium-sized yellow potatoes, quartered
  • 4 Cups chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 Cup snipped chives
  • 4 pieces crispy cooked bacon, crumbled*
  • 1/2 Cup grated Cheddar

Directions

Place the cauliflower and potatoes in a medium-sized pot and cover with the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.  

Working in batches, add the vegetables to a blender with some of the cooking liquid. Blend until silky smooth and nice and thick, about 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Drain any extra cooking liquid out of pot. Add the puréed cauliflower-potato mixture back into the pot and swirl in the butter. Ladle into bowls and top with the chives, bacon, and Cheddar.

Potato Soup Shopping Tip

Buy fresh herbs and spices to season your soup; fresh garlic, parsley, and thyme will enhance the flavor without being overpowering.

Potato Soup Cooking Tip
