Smoky Cauliflower Soup With Kale

Pin It


I used to make this recipe as a potato soup and just last week converted it to cauliflower instead.  I am always looking for ways to reduce the carbs in foods that we eat- that way I have “carb credits” for when I bake!

This is a very simple soup to prepare and since it is pureed it freezes well with no loss of texture. 

I just added a link to this recipe at another blog: The Gluten Free Homemaker.  I love finding new blogs, especially when they are gluten free!  The Gluten Free Homemaker has a feature called Gluten Free Wednesdays where we can all add a link to one of our recipes- it’s a fun way for people to get ideas of new things to cook.

I also shared this recipe with the Virtual Soup Swap at A Southern Fairy Tale, Homemaker Monday at 11th Heaven’s Homemaking Haven, Thoughts On Friday In The Middle Of The Road at A Moderate Life, Gluten Free Wednesdays at The Gluten Free Homemaker

    Yummy! What a great idea to swap the potatoes for cauliflower. My mom used to make a delicious cauliflower soup, now I need to call her and ask what was in it. This sounds really good though!

    Thank you for the nice comment Florentina! I have so many ideas of other directions to take this soup- it could go to Mexican flavors, curry, you name it!

    Oh this looks fantastic! I didn’t realize that this wouldn’t count as a carb but I love that idea. I’m on a big soup kick lately so this will get made very soon.

    I love the idea of using cauliflower instead of potatoes. I’ll have to give that a try, though I do love potato soup. The bacon in this makes it sound especially good. Thanks for participating in Gluten-Free Wednesdays!

    The soup looks amazing, and I love your pictures too.I too like to find lower carb recipes. Since cauliflower is now at the farm stands, this is a perfect soup to make.. I am vegetarian so I will have to leave out the bacon..

    Since “orange” cauliflower has a buttery taste, have you thought about using this cauliflower and avoiding the bacon grease or butter when sauteing the onions and garlic. I saute my veggies in water. Works fine and it avoids making the soup or other recipes so fattening. Also, instead of bacon, you could add 1 teaspoon liquid smoke. I do it all the time and it gives a recipe a smokey taste (bacon taste-not texture). Try it and see what you think. You will avoid fat and cut down on salt in the recipe.
