Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

6 cups chopped cauliflower (about 1 large head)

2 cups fat-free milk

1/3 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chicken or vegetable broth

1 tbsp. chopped garlic

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

3 slices center-cut or turkey bacon

5 tbsp. light sour cream

5 tbsp. chopped scallions

Directions:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 4 cups cauliflower. Cook until very tender, about 15 minutes.

Drain water, and transfer cauliflower to a blender or food processor. Add milk and cheese. Puree until mostly smooth and uniform.

Spray the empty pot with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion until mostly softened, about 4 minutes.

Add cauliflower puree, remaining 2 cups chopped cauliflower, broth, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Bring to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes, or until cauliflower is tender.

Meanwhile, cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave.

Before serving, top each portion with 1 tbsp. each sour cream and scallions. Chop or crumble bacon, and sprinkle over each serving (about 1 tbsp. each).
