Recipe of the week: Cauliflower Soup

Wednesday it was cold today - only in the 60's - windy - wet - gray - rain. The perfect day for soup. Here is a great one - and its easy.

Cauliflower Soup

Start by browning either a head of cauliflower or use a full bag of frozen cauliflower with some onions, and peppers - your choice of colors of course. I like the red and green peppers for added color. When done, toss into a crock pot.

Then in the same pan, fry 3 think slices of bacon (or ham).

Slice up the bacon (or ham) and add it with some of the bacon drippings into the crock pot with the cauliflower that is already there. If you are counting calories, do not put the bacon drippings but instead drain the bacon on a paper towel first.

Add 3 cups of either chicken broth or vegetable broth and let it cook on low 4-5 hours or high for 2-3 hours. I usually have home made chicken broth in the freezer so I used that.  I am cooking for just 2 of us so if you have a lager family, allow more time for it all to season and cook.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  
Enjoy!  We sure did!


  1. Ooh, that sounds - and looks - yummy! I'll have to try that! Thanks for sharing!

  2. That sounds very good. I've never had cauliflower soup before.
