Home / Blog / #WhatsCookinWednesday Cheesy Cauliflower & Bacon Soup

It’s that time of year again where I like to eat some warm delicious comfort foods like chili and soups.  So today I decided to track down a healthy soup recipe with some of my favorite ingredients and came across this #WhatscookinWednesday Cheesy Cauliflower & Bacon Soup.

This recipe takes about 30 minutes to complete from start to finish and its worth every minute of your time.  It’s the perfect dish for this fall climate as its thick, creamy, chunky, filling and packed with flavor.  I mean bacon people… bacon!  This is also a pretty healthy batch, so if you are eating alone put a few servings in the fridge and a few in the freezer and enjoy over the next few weeks.  If you are eating with a family, there is enough for everyone!

The Execution

  1. In a deep pan, heat up 3/4 of the olive oil and the garlic on medium heat.
  2. Once hot, add in the cauliflower.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth and water, bringing it to a boil over high heat. Stir frequently.
  4. Once it’s boiling, stir in the heavy whipping cream then turn the heat down to medium.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the rest of your oil and xanthan gum to make a slurry.
  6. Drop your slurry into the soup and stir. It should start to thicken.
  7. Little by little, add in your cheese, stirring it into the soup so it melts.
