Baked Potato Soup
Everything you love about a baked potato loaded with cheddar, bacon and chives, in the form of a soup! 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. Ingredients: Pierce potatoes with a fork; microwave on high for 5 minutes turn over and microwave another 3 - 5 minutes, until tender. Meanwhile, steam cauliflower with water in a large covered pot until tender. Remove from heat.
