Healthier Potato and Cauliflower Soup

Recipe by  

"This recipe is the result of my desire to lighten one of my favorite comfort foods: potato soup. Cauliflower adds bulk and nutrition while the potato keeps the strong flavor of the cauliflower from overwhelming the dish."

Directions

  1. Stir cauliflower, chicken broth, water, and potatoes together in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and stir in garlic, salt, white pepper, and thyme. Cover pot and simmer until potatoes and cauliflower are soft, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Mash potato and cauliflower mixture using an immersion blender or potato masher until pureed.
  3. Bring pureed soup to a simmer; cook until consistency is smooth and flavors are blended, about 30 minutes. Adjust salt, pepper, and thyme to taste.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The soup may look watery after mashing, but cooking it further really allows the ingredients and flavors to combine and the consistency to improve; don't skip this step!

I followed the recipe exactly. It seemed thick enough to me after blending it, but I followed the cook's note and continued cooking for another 30 minutes. The cauliflower taste was not as strong after cooking it the extra time. Next time I make this, I will decrease the white pepper for my own preference to 1/2 teaspoon and then add more if needed. I love that this soup has only 58 calories per serving!

I like this recipe a lot. It was easy to prepare and it's very tasty. I added a little bit crushed red pepper to mine for a little kick. I thought this was a little garlicky for my taste. So, next time I will use a little less garlic. I'm really wondering about the calorie count. If it's accurate, this is very good and nutritious for those of us who are trying to watch our daily calorie count.

I didn't change a thing, and even my picky eaters liked it!

Really, really tasty--you'd swear there was cream in this. Two suggestions: I thought 10 cloves of garlic would be too much, so I added 7, and that was PLENTY; it has a strong garlic bite to it. Also, use a good-quality stock here. In some soups, you can get away with some cheap bouillon broth, but because there are so few ingredients here, each one needs to be good on its own.
