It's winter and we all know that soups are many of our go-to meals. Instead of eating soup from a can I'm going to be sharing some awesome recipes with you and my accountability group.
I ordered several clean eating cookbooks and I'll be preparing MANY of the recipes as meal prep on Mondays and Thursdays to keep me on track so that I can get in my goal jeans. I have 18 of them by the way… Shaking my head!!!
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 medium russet (baking) potatoes, about 6 ounces ea.
- 3 ½ cups (16 ounces) cauliflower florets from 1 small head
- 1½ cups of Swanson 33% less sodium chicken broth
- 1½ cup of milk (I used almond)
- ½ cup of light sour cream
- ¾ teaspoon of sea salt
- Black pepper
- 10 tablespoons of shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 slices of center-cut bacon cooked and crumbled

Steam, bake or microwave the potatoes until tender. If you don't have a rice cooker\steamer like mine, place a large pot on the stove and set a steamer tray inside. Add 2 inches of water, turn in high and steam for 6-8 minutes. After its tender, remove the basket and drain the water then return the cauliflower to the pot if you're not using the NutriBullet RX shown in my video.
If using a pot, set pot over medium heat and add the broth, milk and potatoes. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Add the sour cream, 3 tablespoons of chives and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally until thick and creamy or for 8 to 10 minutes. If you are using the nutribullet you can add all of the ingredients and cook until it stops. Let sit for 10 minutes before proceeding to the next step.
Remove pot from the heath and pour 1 cup (200 cals) into bowl. Top with 2 table spoons of cheese, chives and the bacon. Serve hot.
