    12 slices center-cut bacon, chopped (half used for garnish)
    1/2 small onion, chopped
    1 TBS celery salt
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    salt & pepper
    4 cups shredded or grated cauliflower (1/2 large head)
    2 Tablespoons water
    1 Tablespoons corn starch
    2 cups chicken broth, divided

3. Add chopped onion, celery salt, and garlic to the pot then season with salt and pepper and saute until vegetables are tender, about 4-5 minutes.

4. Add cauliflower to the pot then stir to combine. Add water then place a lid on top and steam cauliflower until tender, stirring a couple times, about 5-7 minutes.

5. Add remaining chicken broth and milk then turn up heat and bring to a boil.

6. Slowly whisk in corn starch/chicken broth mixture while stirring, then turn down heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, or until chowder has thickened.

7. Turn off heat then stir in 2 cups cheddar cheese until smooth, then stir in half the cooked bacon.

8. Taste and adjust salt and pepper. Serve topped with cooked bacon and green onions.
