Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Cauliflower makes a great base for this creamy, cheesy chowder! Bacon is the perfect delicious addition! Get the recipe:

8 strips bacon
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
5 cups finely chopped cauliflower
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 cups milk
2 cups chicken broth, divided
3 dashes hot sauce, or to taste (optional)
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Step 1
Cook bacon in a large skillet and over medium heat, turning occasionally, until crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon, leaving bacon grease in the skillet. Crumble bacon when cool to the touch.

Step 2
Add celery and garlic to the skillet and cook in the bacon grease until celery is tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cauliflower, water, and onion powder; cover skillet to steam cauliflower. Cook, stirring every so often, until cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes.

Step 3
Add milk, 1 3/4 cups chicken broth, and hot sauce. Bring to a boil.

Step 4
Meanwhile, whisk flour into the remaining chicken broth in a small bowl and drizzle into the boiling chowder. Add Cheddar cheese and 1/2 of the crumbled bacon. Stir until smooth and cheese has melted.

Step 5
Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Ladle into bowls and top with remaining bacon.

There was a lot of grease left in my pot way too much so I did drain

Cauliflower chowder looks so delicious. I and family like cauliflower. Will make this soon. When people quit being crazy. Not leaving stuff for other people. Due to this virus. Soon as stores are stock products are gone. We have not stocked up nothing.
