Bacon-Cheddar Cauliflower Chowder
Use any type of bacon you'd like, such as turkey, low-sodium, or precooked.
You can use a food processor for the celery, garlic, and cauliflower if you prefer. I originally hand chopped all the ingredients, but the chowder was too chunky, so I started finishing it with my blender.
If you'd like a smoother chowder, use a blender before adding the Cheddar cheese and bacon. Fill blender halfway with chowder. Cover and hold lid down with a potholder; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend to desired consistency. Pour into a pot. Repeat with remaining chowder.
