Last night my parents’ friend came over for dinner and I made creamy cauliflower soup and I really wanted bacon so I just decided to add some delicious bacon to my soup and it tasted so good and I was very pleased with the outcome.
Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Bacon
50 gr. Unsalted butter
1 onion, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic
Salt to taste
5 medium sized potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 heads cauliflower, cut it in small pieces
1 quart beef broth
1 quart water
1 cup heavy cream
75 gr. bacon, chopped
40 gr finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Melt and heat up the butter over medium heat. Toss in the onion and celery and cook it for a little while around 5 minutes. Then add the garlic and a bit of salt and stir that together.
Stir in potatoes, cauliflower, beef broth, and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until cauliflower is tender and potatoes are easily smashed against the side of the pot. That will take about 30 minutes
Puree the soup using an immersion blender until smooth. Reduce the heat to low, Pour in the cream and cheese and continue to cook until melted.
Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp and add it to the soup
Season with more salt to taste
Then just Bon Appétit!
