Another soup coming in hot! Combining a reader recommended potato soup recipe (thanks Julie!) with my favorite baked potato soup recipe…and adding a twist (cauliflower!!) to create…the most delicious potato & cauliflower soup that is sure to please the whole family!
Potato & Cauliflower Soup
- 1 30 oz bag frozen hash browns (diced)
- 1 12 oz bag frozen riced cauliflower
- 8 slices bacon (thick sliced)
- 1 small yellow onion, diced (about 1 cup)
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2.5 cups chicken stock
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- optional toppings: sliced green onions or chives, shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, sour cream
In a large soup pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crispy. Transfer the bacon to a separate plate and dice once cooled.
Add onion and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft. Stir in the garlic and sauté for an extra 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant. Stir the flour into the mixture and sauté for an additional 1 minute to cook the flour, stirring occasionally. Then stir in the stock until combined, followed by the milk, hash browns and cauliflower rice.
Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Stir the soup every few minutes so that the bottom does not burn.
Stir in the cheddar cheese and sour cream, salt, pepper and cooked bacon bits. Serve with toppings!

I am moving from Detroit to Ashville . Only been there once but like the mountains . The folks seem so friendly . What else can I expect? Thanks
Love the addition of the cauliflower! I pop cauli in the food processor and chop it down TINY and add it to my mashed potatoes, but I’d never thought to add it to the soup! Great tip.
