Bacon-Cheddar Cauliflower Chowder image

A quick, low-carb chowder. This soup is wonderfully smooth and filling, and thoroughly enjoyed at my house. Serve as is, or garnish with green onion or parsley.

Time 35m

Yield 8

Number Of Ingredients 12

8 strips bacon
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
5 cups finely chopped cauliflower
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 cups milk
2 cups chicken broth, divided
3 dashes hot sauce, or to taste
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Steps:

  • Cook bacon in a large skillet and over medium heat, turning occasionally, until crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon, leaving bacon grease in the skillet. Crumble bacon when cool to the touch.
  • Add celery and garlic to the skillet and cook in the bacon grease until celery is tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cauliflower, water, and onion powder; cover skillet to steam cauliflower. Cook, stirring every so often, until cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add milk, 1 3/4 cups chicken broth, and hot sauce. Bring to a boil.
  • Meanwhile, whisk flour into the remaining chicken broth in a small bowl and drizzle into the boiling chowder. Add Cheddar cheese and 1/2 of the crumbled bacon. Stir until smooth and cheese has melted.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Ladle into bowls and top with remaining bacon.

  • Arrange the chopped cauliflower and garlic cloves on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Spread into a single layer. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Set aside to cool. When cool enough to handle, remove the garlic from its skin and finely chop.
  • In a large pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until just beginning to soften. Add the carrots and celery, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the chopped garlic, cauliflower, bay leaf, and thyme. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and mix to combine.
  • Cook until the flour disappears, about 2 minutes. Pour in the broth, stir, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the milk and cheese, and continue mixing until the cheese is melted and the chowder is creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Discard the bay leaf. If you'd like your soup thicker or creamier, use an immersion blender to puree it until it reaches your desired consistency (Alternatively, you can ladle a few scoops into a blender and puree a few batches. Be careful not to fill your blender more than halfway, as hot liquids like to splatter). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle the chowder into bowls, and serve warm.
