This recipe is the result of my desire to lighten one of my favorite comfort foods: potato soup. Cauliflower adds bulk and nutrition while the potato keeps the strong flavor of the cauliflower from overwhelming the dish.

Directions

  1. Stir cauliflower, chicken broth, water, and potatoes together in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and stir in garlic, salt, white pepper, and thyme. Cover pot and simmer until potatoes and cauliflower are soft, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Mash potato and cauliflower mixture using an immersion blender or potato masher until pureed.
  3. Bring pureed soup to a simmer; cook until consistency is smooth and flavors are blended, about 30 minutes. Adjust salt, pepper, and thyme to taste.

I followed the recipe exactly. It seemed thick enough to me after blending it, but I followed the cook's note and continued cooking for another 30 minutes. The cauliflower taste was not as strong after cooking it the extra time. Next time I make this, I will decrease the white pepper for my own preference to 1/2 teaspoon and then add more if needed. I love that this soup has only 58 calories per serving!

I followed the recipe exactly - except for adding a tad of heavy cream and a tad of cayenne. The soup was very smooth and light and we enjoyed it the next day as well. Definitely a keeper - Thank you, Lee!

Really, really tasty--you'd swear there was cream in this. Two suggestions: I thought 10 cloves of garlic would be too much, so I added 7, and that was PLENTY; it has a strong garlic bite to it. Also, use a good-quality stock here. In some soups, you can get away with some cheap bouillon broth, but because there are so few ingredients here, each one needs to be good on its own.
