Baked Potato Cauliflower Soup

I haven’t shared a recipe in a while, but this one is worth passing along. It was a rainy day here yesterday, so it seemed like the perfect time for soup. Honestly, it’s probably one of the last days I’ll be able to make it for a while.

I’ve been making this soup since around this time last year, and I would strongly recommend it.


My husband isn’t a huge fan of cauliflower, but he likes this soup. I promise, it doesn’t taste like cauliflower.

Here’s the recipe from Skinny Taste:


  • 2 russet potatoes, washed and dried
  • 1 small head of cauliflower, stem removed cut into florets
  • 1 1/2 cups fat free chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups 1% reduced-fat milk
  • salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 10 tbsp reduced-fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 tbsp chopped chives, divided
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (you can use turkey bacon if you prefer)


Pierce potatoes with a fork; microwave on high for 5 minutes turn over and microwave another 3 – 5 minutes, until tender. Or if you prefer to use your oven, bake at 400ยฐ for 1 hour or until tender. Cool. Peel potatoes.

Meanwhile, steam cauliflower with water in a large covered pot until tender. Drain and return to pot. On medium heat, add chicken broth, milk, potatoes and bring to a boil. Use an immersion blender to puree until smooth. Add sour cream, half the chives, salt and pepper and cook on low another 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat. Ladle 1 cup soup into each bowl. Top each serving with 2 tbsp cheese, remaining chives, and bacon.

I substitute nonfat plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream, and I use reduced sodium chicken broth and bacon. I usually steam my cauliflower in the microwave with chicken broth and a little light butter.

The website this recipe comes from has some really yummy food. I’ve tried several other recipes, including the Skinny Texas Cheese Fries.


Seriously, these are the best! I made them several times last year, but haven’t made them yet this year. Now I need to work them into the meal schedule soon.
