Cream of Baked "Potato" Soup

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

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. This will not fit in a regular size bowl but rather those large ones. I know 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
Created by Desinie Dunn Rushing

1 ½ cup cauliflower, fresh or frozen (3 Greens)
1 cup chicken broth (1 Condiment)
2 wedges laughing cow light garlic and herb (1 Healthy Fat)
Sea Salt to taste
1/8 tsp pepper (1/4 Condiment)
1 tbsp fresh chive (1/7 Condiment)
2 tbsp or 0.5 oz 2% reduced fat cheddar cheese (I used this as my additional 2 oz of protein but if you would like to count it - 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. Place the top on the pitcher, 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, All your Greens, 1.72 Condiments and 1Healthy Fat per serving
