Tips

We like chopped green onion on the top, too, for 0 added calories.


Directions

- Preheat oven to 450░.
- Heat butter in a large stock pot. Saute onion, thyme and garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.
- Add potatoes, stock and bay leaf and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat; discard bay leaf.

Meanwhile, heat over to 450 degrees.
- Spray a cookie sheet with cooking oil spray.
- Arrange cauliflower in a single layer and spray again. Sprinkle with black pepper.
- Roast at 450░ for 30 minutes, turning once. Florets will begin to brown.

To blend: Remove the center piece of the blender lid so steam can escape. Cover the hole with a cloth or paper towel.
- Blend the sour cream with the cauliflower for a few seconds.
- Pour the cauliflower mixture into bowl and set aside.
- In small batches, blend the potato mixture for a couple seconds. - Return everything to the stock pot over medium heat.

To serve, sprinkle shredded cheese and crumbled Smart Bacon on top of each serving.
