I've had several requests to make-over this soup (You really like to challenge me, don't you!) I was a little stumped on how I was going to take something as carb rich as potatoes, with added fat like sour cream, cheese and bacon, light! I knew I had to hide a vegetable in this soup to bulk it up without added calories. My first attempt was parsnips, but the flavor was too overwhelming. My second attempt was cauliflower, knowing how much you all love my Creamy cauliflower puree recipe and it was a winner.
