Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 medium white onion, chopped
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    2 carrots, peeled and chopped
    1 head cauliflower, chopped
    2 medium potatoes, chopped
    3 chicken legs
    4 cups water
    1 tbsp low fat sour cream
    2 tbsp flour

    Herbs and spices of your choice

Tips

We like thyme, rosemary, or dill in this soup. Use 1 teaspoon dried.


Directions

Coat a large pot with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrots (along with your choice of herbs and spices). Cook for five minutes, until they start to get some color and soften.
Add the potatoes, cauliflower, chicken and water.
Cover, bring to a boil, then lower heat back to medium. Cook for 30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the veggies are tender.
Remove the chicken legs, pull the meat off the bones and shred. Return the chicken to the pot.
Stir together the flour and sour cream in a small bowl, then whisk into the soup. Simmer for two minutes and serve.

    excellent. I used low sodium chicken broth and cut up 2 chicken breasts instead of the legs, with 1 tsp of garlic this was great. - 10/24/08

    I would leave out the potatoes, as the cauliflower when cooked and mashed up will taste just like mashed potaoes. Yummy and low fat! - 12/30/08

    Rather than chicken legs - chicken breasts is a better choice of meat = lower fat grams - 4/7/09

    I made this today. I added Italian Seasoning and Turmeric because it is so healthy. Tastes great. I will add the sour cream and flour tomorrow when I reheat it for dinner. - 8/19/08

    I have made this without the potatoes which lowers the cals and carbs greatly and does not effect the taste of this yummy soup. - 4/8/09

    Very good, and more filling than it looks. It was a little bland so I added a bit more pepper sprinkled on top. We had just this soup for supper and it was more than enough! - 3/18/09

    Sounds excellent, I've been looking for a good cauliflower soup recipe for a while. I'll replace the salt with Mrs. Dash and save almost 400 mg sodium per serving, and it's a great base so my second time I may add some fresh or frozen veggies for color.
    Thanks. - 4/11/09

    The water does not seem proportionate to all that cauliflower. A whole head? Also, I think I would use broth next time as some of the others have done. It is quite bland. But after making a few adjustments, we enjoyed this soup! - 11/13/09

    No chicken for me. I think I would replace with corn and kidney beans. Also, I would skip the salt. Thanks for sharing this recipe! :-) - 12/30/08

    I made this with unsalted chicken stock, bay leaves, garlic, and onions. It was still very bland. My advice is to add a tsp of curry to it. Curry and cauliflower go marvelously together. I add it to all of my cauliflower recipes. - 5/20/13
