Servings: 4 servings
- 1 cup yellow onion, chopped (medium)
- 1 tablespoons butter
- 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets, 6-8 cups
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- ⅛ teaspoon ground clove
- 4 cups chicken broth, I use bone broth
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- For garnish:
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 4 slices bacon, crumbled
- 2 green onions (or scallions), chopped
Chop head of cauliflower head into florets. (About 6-8 cups)
In a heavy bottom saucepan over medium heat, add butter and onion. Cook for 2 minutes or until the onion is softened.
Stir in the cauliflower florets and cook for 4-5 minutes. Mix until all florets are warm and covered with onion/butter mixture.
Season with salt, pepper, onion powder, clove and garlic.
Add chicken broth and cream and bring to a boil. Cook until all florets are tender. (15-20 minutes).
Remove from the heat and with an immersion blender puree the soup.
Top with bacon, chives and cheese!
The yellow onion can be substitute by a red onion (color of soup may change).
Clove can be substitute with nutmeg. I like clove as it gives a nice peppery taste.
Chicken broth can be replaced by chicken bouillon.
If you don’t want to add cream, simply replace the 1 cup of cream with 1 cup of broth. This will create a thinner consistency.
Instead of using an immersion blender, you can mix the soup into a high powered blender.
