I've tried so so so many cauliflower soup recipes. One has made the blog. Just one. Out of probably 7-8 recipes. Gray even asked me to stop trying knew cauliflower soup recipes last winter. Ha. And I did stop until I saw this recipe and then I just had to try it. We really did like this one and it was pretty simple to make. This recipe is slightly adapted from The Magical Slow Cooker.
32oz chicken broth
1 head cauliflower
1 cup diced leeks
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp pepper
3 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt to taste
6 slices bacon (cooked and crumbled)
1 bunch of green onion (chopped)
Chop the cauliflower into chucks and remove the green parts. Combine the cauliflower, chicken broth, diced leeks, garlic and pepper in the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove the mixture from the slow cooker and blend in batches. Place back in the crock pot and stir in the heavy cream and 3 cups cheddar cheese. Add the salt to taste. Serve topped with extra cheese, crumbled bacon and green onion.
