Bacon-Cheddar Cauliflower Chowder
A quick, low-carb chowder. This soup is wonderfully smooth and filling, and thoroughly enjoyed at my house. Serve as is, or garnish with green onion or parsley.
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.
