I try so hard to take "appealing" pictures of the food for my recipe posts, I swear!
Let's face it- I need to take a freakin' class to learn how to take picture of food, ha ha! But I think I'm safe when it comes to cooking so you can trust that this recipe is bomb! I love soup season. Love, love, love it! I don't think Arizona has soup season but you better believe I'm still busting out a new soup each week! It is winter in other parts of the country! Anyway, today I want to share a potato soup recipe that is super delish, and pretty healthy, except for the unhealthy part, HA!
1 small head of cauliflower
5 small russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 1/2 cup diced onion
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 1/2 cup half and half
2 cups shredded cheese
green onions (I never use them actually, but I'm sure they would have made that picture prettier, ha ha!)
Chop up your cauliflower and steam in a steamer (according to your steamer's directions). Once steamed, puree cauliflower as smooth as you like. (I puree mine to the smoothest consistency I can) Combine cauliflower, potatoes, onion, chicken broth, salt and pepper in crock pot. Cook on low for 6-7 hours.
About 30 minutes before serving, combine flour and half and half in a bowl. Use a whisk to mix well. Pour in crock pot (I like to mash up my potatoes a bit as I stir in the mixture) and turn the heat on high for 30 minutes.
Last but not least, turn the heat off, add the cheese, stir well then serve! Top with cheese, crumbled bacon and green onions.
Mia loves my white chicken chili I shared not too long ago, but this potato soup is definitely her favorite! She usually asks for, wait for it, not seconds... but a THIRD helping! Every time! Girlfriend loves the soup (or maybe it's the bacon she's after, ha!) Hope you try this and LOVE it!
