Once you have your roasted cauliflower ready, you’re going to cook up some bacon in a Dutch oven or other heavy pot until it is nice and crisp. Scoop out the bacon, and then cook the soup ingredients…onion, roasted cauliflower, chicken broth, some herbs and spices….until everything is nice and tender. Now get out your handy blender and blend away until everything is smooth and creamy.
All that’s left to do now is stir in a little milk and cream and cheese, heat it up (this is the part where you can reheat it if you were all organized and made it ahead of time), toss that bacon on top and serve it up. I think if I had known about this particular recipe during my Atkins flirtation I might actually have been able to give up the pasta. Maybe. We’ll never know!
