Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower (1 1/2 lb), separated into florets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 oz)
  • 4 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
  • Additional shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired
  • Fresh thyme sprigs, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Pat cauliflower dry with paper towels so it will brown more quickly and easily. Coarsely chop into 1/2-inch pieces (about 6 cups). In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Spread cauliflower in single layer in skillet. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  • 2
    Stir in broth, half-and-half, chopped thyme and salt. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cauliflower is tender. Remove from heat; stir in cheese until melted.
  • 3
    Carefully pour 3 cups of the soup into blender (making sure to get equal amounts of cauliflower and broth). Cover; blend on medium speed about 30 to 45 seconds, stopping blender occasionally to scrape sides, until smooth. Return to skillet with remaining soup; stir to blend. Heat just until hot if necessary.
  • 4
    Garnish individual servings with bacon, additional cheese and thyme sprig.
