Cream of Baked "Potato" Soup

Desinie Dunn Rushing had messaged me on face book about her idea for a faux potato soup. Thanks Desinie! It sounded sooo good that I had to try it. I love potato soup with all the fixings and so those hubby! As you know from my previous post, hubby had his wisdom teeth pulled yesterday and I thought this was the perfect dish to make him, minus the bacon bits and cheese. It doesn't even need the extra stuff in it to make it taste good although I wouldn't omit the chives. The garlic and herb from the laughing cow cheese adds a lot of flavor so all you really need is a little bit of pepper. I did not even tell him it was made from cauliflower and he loved it! It makes a very large generous serving. I will be making this again, especially on those really cold days when you need something to warm your insides. All you need to add is your lean. This is one great tasting soup! Enjoy!

Cream of Baked “Potato” Soup

1 1/2 cups cauliflower, fresh or frozen (3 Greens)
1 cup chicken broth (1 Condiment)
2 wedges laughing cow light garlic and herb (1 Healthy Fat)
1/8 tsp salt (1/2 Condiment)
1/8 tsp black pepper (1/4 Condiment)
1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped (1/4 Condiment)
2 tbsp reduced fat cheddar cheese (1/8 Lean)
1 tsp of Turkey Bacon bits (1/3 Condiment)

Remove the leaves and thick core from the cauliflower, coarsely chop, and reserve 1 ½ cups. Add the cauliflower and stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until the cauliflower is very soft and falling apart, about 15 minutes. If using frozen cauliflower just boil for 1 minute until tender.

Remove from heat and place in a blender. Add Laughing Cow Light cheese, salt and pepper and blend on high for 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour into a bowl and add cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and chives. Keep warm until ready to serve.

1/8 Lean, 3 Greens, 2.3 Condiments and 1 Healthy Fat per serving
