Author: The Weary Chef

Recipe type: Main

Cuisine: Soup

Serves: 3-4





Ingredients:







2 tbsp. butter

1 small onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced

2 tbsp. flour

½ tsp. Cajun seasoning

4 c. chicken broth (two 14-oz. cans)

1½ lb. Russet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1" pieces

1 c. cauliflower florets

½ c. half and half

½ c. shredded cheese

¼ c. sour cream (I used reduced fat)

up to ½ c. milk (optional)

4 slices cooked bacon, diced (optional)

4 green onions, sliced (optional)

Instructions:

Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, and saute until very tender. Add garlic and Cajun seasoning, and saute 1-2 minutes longer. Stir in flour until onions are evenly coated.

Slowly add chicken broth, about ¼ c. at a time, stirring constantly to keep mixture smooth.

When all broth is incorporated, add potato cubes and cauliflower. Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are tender.

Using a stick blender, carefully blend soup until smooth. (You can also transfer soup to a regular blender and puree that way, but please be careful pouring the very hot soup!) Stir in half and half, cheese, and sour cream, and return to a simmer. If soup is thicker than you would like, stir in up to ½ c. milk and return to a simmer.

Sprinkle bacon and green onions over individual servings if desired.
