    The 40 BEST Soups

    This great collection of easy Soup Recipes is all you need to get that comfy cozy feeling when the temperatures drop. One of our favorites is this loaded cauliflower soup:


    • 2 cauliflower heads, cut into medium sized florets
    • 6 bacon strips
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 2 tsp dried thyme
    • 6 cups chicken broth
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp cheddar cheese, divided
    • 2 scallions, chopped, for garnish
    • Salt & pepper to taste


      1. Fry bacon in a pot till crispy and remove to plate. Crumble it into pieces for garnish.
      2. In bacon grease, add in onion and garlic and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add in cauliflower florets along with salt, pepper and thyme. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes.
      3. Stir in chicken broth and cook for about 10 minutes till the cauliflower gets tender.
      4. Blend 3/4 of the cauliflower mixture in a blender leaving 1/4 behind in the pot. Mix blended cauliflower back into the pot and keep on simmering 5 minutes. Alternately, you can use an immersion blender.
